   Eastern Alamance High School freshman Jake Foushee is about to get a fresh round of fame.

   The 14-year-old was on the West Coast on Tuesday to tape a segment for “The Ellen DeGeneres Show.” The show will air today. The episode also features comedian Jack Black and actress Cobie Smulders.

   Foushee appeared on “Good Morning America” last week.

   The TV appearances are the result of worldwide attention Foushee’s voice has gained. His YouTube videos include impressions of the late Don LaFontaine, who was known for his movie trailers and TV commercials.

   One of his video clips has been viewed more than 1 million times.

   In central North Carolina, “The Ellen DeGeneres Show” airs at 4 p.m. on weekdays on WFMY, a CBS affiliate in Greensboro, and WNCN, an NBC affiliate in the Raleigh-Durham area.
