TV's Joey Lawrence joins Chippendales for 3 weeks
NEW YORK (AP) -- Joey Lawrence is shedding his clothes: The actor has joined the male erotic dancing troupe Chippendales.
The 36-year-old will work as a singer, dancer and host in the Las Vegas production for three weeks in June.
In a statement to The Associated Press on Thursday, Lawrence said screening Channing Tatum's upcoming film about being a stripper — "Magic Mike" — encouraged him to join the male revue.
Says Lawrence: "I found out that guys like Brad Pitt and Javier Bardem have also done stuff like this and being the fearless guy that I am, I said yes."
The married father of two stars as a male nanny in the ABC Family series "Melissa & Joey." He's best known for his role on the 1990s TV show "Blossom."
