Alex Trugman (Jay Katz/ Composer) got his first national exposure on American Idol Season 8, where he made it to the semi-finals, or as he likes to say, “totally almost won.” An actor and musician since his teenage years, Alex identifies with Jay’s, well, “complicated” relationship with reality. Alex likes to think of Jay as the much more stylish yin to his yang, or more accurately, the fashion-forward Mr. Hyde to his doesn’t-get-why-stripes-on-stripes-isn’t-okay Dr. Jekyll. Alex is incredibly humbled to work with such an outstanding cast and crew on Jewvangelist, and would like to remind any people reading this that, as a working musician and actor, he might be available to play at your Bar/Bat Mitzvah, as long as there is a buffet. Is there a buffet? Alex really likes food.
