Lopez joining ‘Extra’

'Dancing' star will cohost weekend edition

Warner Bros./Telepictures has signed the actor Mario Lopez to join the syndicated pop-culture magazine “Extra” in two jobs: as cohost of its weekend edition and as a correspondent with the daily program.

Lopez is in demand these days; millions of people saw him cavorting as a celeb contestant on ABC’s “Dancing With the Stars,” coming in second to Emmitt Smith in this season’s final episode.

His “Stars” appearances got Lopez a starring role in an ABC Family original movie “Holidays in Handcuffs,” the host chores on the 2007 Miss America Pageant, and a talent-holding deal with the CW.

Earlier in his career, Lopez was a regular on two successful TV series: NBC’ “Saved By the Bell” and USA’s “Pacific Blue.”
