Zoey's Extraordinary Playlist star Skylar Astin discusses his musical inspiration, Billy Joel. "I've been listening and performing Billy Joel long before I ever got into this professionally. I used to audition with New York State of Mind," says Astin. "He tells such a story and I sang all of his songs for so long. I even have this piano book from childhood on my piano still in my house." Astin describes meeting Billy Joel after seeing him perform and play piano in the play, "Spring Awakening." "He came backstage. He was in the dressing room... He said, 'Oh there's the piano man' and I literary just completely fan boy-ed out. I just couldn't even believe that Billy Joel knew who I was." Astin adds, "It's definitely a dream of mine to be able to play him in a biopic at one point. That's definitely a dream of mine that I want to put out there at some point."
