Some times a good thing can be hard to shake. And, why would you want to?

Well, if you are an actor, being on a successful show playing a particular role can lead to typecasting and role steering for the rest of your career. Just ask Jai Rodriguez of the groundbreaking Emmy-winning BRAVO reality-TV show "Queer Eye for the Straight Guy."

Rodriguez’s 5 season stint on "Queer Eye" (where his role as Culture Vulture allowed him to comment on trends and ideas) led the public to forget about his beginnings as a musical theater performer - instead, associating him exclusively with reality show personalities.

"When you think about it, post ’Queer Eye’ was when reality-TV first burst (heavily) on to the scene, and I was suddenly thrown in with a group of people I didn’t fit in with," says Rodriguez.
