Jason Randal looks nothing like Tom. I do know that Meir Yedid's site showed that Jason was to be on the Ellen DeGeneres show. I chatted with Tom several times over the last couple of weeks and he said nothing about doing any TV.
Tom is out of town again, but I have sent inquiries. Perhaps he covered for Jason? But, in 30 years, I have never seen Tom do a bill to lemon.
