Generics Puzzler

Does the following code compile?
  class Puzzler {

    <T> T cast(T t, Class<T> clazz) {
      return clazz.cast(t);

    <T> T nop(T t) {
      return cast(t, t.getClass());
Why not? Update: To make things more interesting, in Mary's honor, I'll ship a free Google t-shirt (paid for out of my pocket) to the first person to post a comment with the correct answer (judged by me).

Dammit, Chris. You win. At least I don't have to ship it. ;)
