You may know him as George Washington in the smash hit “Hamilton” on Broadway or as a fashion stylist on the CBS show "Bull." But if Christopher Jackson could have chosen a career other than acting, it wouldn’t have been in politics or fashion.

When Rach asked Christopher what he thinks he'd be doing if he weren't succeeding as a Broadway and television star, he didn't miss a beat.

"Baseball," he says with no hesitation. "Baseball is a passion of mine."

And if he had the option, he'd be a catcher (though he admits his knees wouldn’t be up for the job these days) or play third base.

Now, while his life led him in a different direction (he’s been acting since 1995!), he has been given the chance to indulge his passion by throwing the first pitch at a professional baseball game. (And so has Rach!)

"It's the second most nerve-racking experience," Christopher jokes. "The other one is hitting a golf ball with other people watching."

How'd he do on the mound, you ask?

"[I] threw a strike!"

A man of many talents, indeed.
