Ian Ziering to Take It Off with the Chippendales – At 49!
The fit 90210 star's supportive wife calls him "Magic Ian"
Move over, Magic Mike!
Former Beverly Hills 90210 star Ian Ziering may be 49, but age isn’t stopping him from shaking his groove thang – and showing off his ripped bod.
The actor plans to dance and disrobe as a guest star with the famed Chippendales dancers, taking the stage to perform for four weeks in June at the Rio All-Suite Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas.
“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,” Ziering said in a statement. The actor recently Tweeted he was down 12 pounds.
“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?” said Ziering, whose wife Erin dubbed him “Magic Ian.”
Added a thick-skinned Ziering: “I am so excited to be a part of this iconic worldwide organization, it’s really a dream come true! Hey TMZ, I’ve got two front row seats for you!”
