Thesp riding ‘Soul Train’

Actor Mystro Clark has caught boogie fever. He’s picking up the baton as the new host of “Soul Train,” the syndicated weekly dance show that’s hustling, bumping, grinding and freakin’ into its 26th season this fall.

“Soul Train,” distributed by Tribune Entertainment, has been using celebrity guest hosts ever since exec producer Don Cornelius bowed out in 1993 after 22 years as the show’s frontman.

Clark will also be seen this fall alongside Scott Baio in the Fox sitcom “Rewind.” Clark’s TV credits include the Fox sketch comedy series “The Show” and the Columbia TriStar syndie strip “The Newz.” He’s set to make his feature film debut later this year in Trimark Pictures’ “Chairman of the Board,” with Raquel Welch and Carrot Top.

And yes, he grew up watching “Soul Train.”

Said Clark: “I couldn’t help but be awestruck over the opportunity to follow in the footsteps of someone whom I’ve admired as much as Don Cornelius.”
