Harry Connick Jr: Not A Judge On American Idol Because Of His Hair? (VIDEO)

Harry Connick Jr. is not only a crooner and actor, but apparently he’s a comedian as well! He has made jokes that he has never been offered a job as a judge on American Idol – because his hair was too short.

Connick recently told Access Hollywood that he would love to be an American Idol judge. He actually appeared on the show as a musical mentor in 2009.

“I couldn’t grow my hair fast enough. Steven Tyler beat me to it, and how are you going to compete with that…I tried and I pushed and pushed, but Steven – he already had shoulder-length [hair]. That’s what they were looking for.”
