    Itīs been a while since anyone has made this confusion.

    My name is Michael Jeter and I am an English Comp grad student in New Orleans.

    I did play Nicely Nicely Johnson in a high school production of Guys and Dolls, a role for which the great actor Michael Jeter won a Tony, I believe.

    I am not he; reports of MY death have been greatly exaggerated.

    Reports of his death are all too real.

    My proposal was Haysbert..
