I call my interest in Mario Lopez a healthy facination. My partner Doug might say that it's more like a disturbing preoccupation. (He just doesn't understand the bond between Mario and me.)
While he's remained in the nation's view since he bared all in Nip/Tuck and shook what he showed in Dancing with the Stars, the latest news out of the Lopez camp is his current run in A Chorus Line on Broadway. He joins the show in the role of Zach, a director looking to cast some of the hopeful dancers while prodding them into introspection about the life of chorus dancers.
Die-hard A Chorus Line fans may be unsure of the changes to the show allowing Mario to have a bit more time onstage (Zach spends the majority of the show as a disembodied voice, watching the auditioners from his desk at the back of the theater), but we've seen in his Dancing with the Stars appearance that he'll be able to keep up with the rest of the performers in the cast.
Corrospondents Josh & Josh had the opportunity to interview Mario for episode two of Towleroad TV, which has just been posted at Towleroad. Mario talks about his gay fanbase, joining the show, his fitness book, and the fact that they didn't have to photoshop the cover!
