Playing Warbucks

Daddy WarbucksThirteen-year-old Tommy Foy decided to take the 'method acting' approach for his school production of Little Orphan Annie. Foy was playing the role of Daddy Warbucks, and felt that the only way to do the role justice was to shave his head.
"I got a bald cap but it looked fake, so I said I would shave my head," he said. "I thought why not. It's just hair, it'll grow back."
His mother was initially uncertain, fearing that he might be teased by classmates, but that ended up not being a concern.
"At first I was a bit hesitant...but afterward I was really happy because my head was in pretty good shape. There weren't any big dents or anything like that," Tommy said. "At school, a lot of my classmates loved it. Everybody was feeling my head (Thursday)."
Congratulations on the success of your play, Tommy.
