It looks like Bobby Wooten III has managed to ‘woo’ Katie Holmes off her feet, so to speak. According to People, Wooten and Holmes were spotted getting a little up close and personal during a walk around town in New York City. What’s more, it looks like Wooten has met Holmes’ parents as he gave her mother, Kathy, a big hug during their day date.
Wooten is a bass guitar player who has some impressive credits to his name. He has appeared in Broadway’s “American Utopia” and, as of this writing, is playing for “Moulin Rouge! The Musical,” per Broadway World. In an interview with Bass Magazine back in December, Wooten opened up about his musical background. “My grandfather started the Wooten Choral Ensemble in 1949. I was born in New Jersey, and we lived there at a time when my dad was doing pop music and studio work, and playing keyboards in Marcus Miller’s band,” he said.
It shouldn’t come as a surprise that Holmes and Wooten have clicked as Holmes is no stranger to Broadway, either. She made her debut on the big stage back in 2008 for the revival of Arthur Miller’s “All My Sons,” per NPR, and also played Lorna in “Dead Accounts” in 2012. While some people try their luck in Hollywood, it looks like Holmes has found her love on Broadway and is not shy about showing it, either.
