Yossi Montana

I'm able to share this information with you, since the four-year confidentiality clause I agreed to is up. Or so my lawyers tell me.

Everyone has heard of the fame and success of Disney's Hanna Montana, but few (until now) know the truth about who was first approached for the title character of Disney's newest show.

It was me.

The working title was Yossi Montana, and we shot the pilot episode along with the first few episodes. The people at Disney decided at the last moment to switch actors, to appeal to more 10-year-old girls than I would have been able to achieve.

Also, as my 'alter ego' in the show, I didn't look very believable with a blond wig.
