Idol Chatter

Who knew a Narnian prince was a triple threat? Before he landed his first Hollywood lead role, actor Ben Barnes (Prince Caspian in the new “Narnia” movie sequel) was singing and dancing in a British boy band called Hyrise. Performing the mildly racy song “Leading Me On,” Hyrise competed to represent the UK in 2004 during the annual Eurovision Song Contest (think “American Idol” meets “Making the Band“). Perhaps we’ll see Barnes in a movie musical in the near future–“Oklahoma,” anyone?Watch a YouTube clip of Ben Barnes talking about Hyrise and belting out “Leading Me On.”
