Former ’90210′ Star Ian Ziering Is Now a Chippendales Dancer
Ian Ziering, who played Steve for a decade on Aaron Spelling’s ’90s hit ‘Beverly Hills, 90210,’ has fulfilled a lifelong dream: becoming a Chippendales dancer. (We’re pretty sure that was the goal of the dude who invented penicillin too.)
The 49-year-old actor will take the stage June 6 in Las Vegas as the guest headliner for the all-male revue. So, ladies and gentlemen of a certain persuasion, get your tickets and your singles ready.
Ziering’s four-week stint — in which he’ll wear only bits and pieces of a tuxedo — will happen at the Rio All-Suite Hotel and Casino in Sin City, with the actor shaking his naughty bits through the month of June.
“Actors and performers never know what their next job will be, and when I got the call from Chippendales, my jaw dropped as it came on the heels of TMZ calling me fat on national TV,” said the ‘Dancing With the Stars‘ alum in a statement. “I am passionate about health and fitness, so I’ve kept in shape, and dancing is something I’ve always enjoyed, so I figured why not?”
“I am so excited to be a part of this iconic worldwide organization, it’s really a dream come true!” he said before snarkily adding, “Hey TMZ, I’ve got two front row seats for you!”
