Flashback Friday: Before He Was Beautiful, Jake Epstein Was a Canadian Soap Star on Degrassi

J/K! He was ''always'' beautiful.

Noted songwriter Gerry Goffin is best known as the coauthor of legendary tunes like "The Loco-Motion," "Will You Love Me Tomorrow," and "(You Make Me Feel Like) A Natural Woman." Rising actor Jake Epstein is best known as the star of the legendary Canadian soap opera Degrassi: The Next Generation. Those two worlds are colliding on Broadway this season in Beautiful — The Carole King Musical, which stars Epstein as Goffin.

If you were (or are) a Degrassi fan (and let's face it, of course you were and are), you'll appreciate this flashback to baby Jake and his romantic duet with Cassie Steele's Manny Santos during the second season of the soap, which you can watch below.
