Shaun Cassidy

Nearly three decades after his stint on the pop charts, former teen idol Shaun Cassidy, 47, is now the creator and executive producer of ABC's sci-fi hit Invasion.

HOW DID YOU GO FROM POP TO THE PARANORMAL? My mother [The Partridge Family's Shirley Jones] loves horror. I think the perception of me as a kid was the boy next door. Maybe I lived next door, but I was reading Stephen King.

DO YOU STILL DA DOO RON-RON? Only when I'm drunk. I sing around the house. I love to sing, but I don't like being in the music business.

ARE YOUR IDOL DAYS OVER? I get 40-year-old women coming up to me all the time. It's like they're meeting Santa Claus. It always felt like it was a temporary thing for me...but if you were a poster on their ceiling, they never forget.
