Its Official: Danza Coming to The Producers

Dynamically semi-talented yutz Tony "Tony" Danza will be joining the cast of the Producers at Paris Las Vegas on August 13. His portrayal of Max Bialystock on Broadway was the first time that Tony played a character whose name wasn't Tony.

So sayeth the Danzanator:

"I love the part," said Danza, a former star of TV's "Taxi" and "Who's the Boss," who signed to take over Aug. 13 as the down-on-his-luck theatrical producer who hatches a wildly successful play despite his best attempts to fail.

"My take is, I think Max is a likable guy," Danza said by telephone from his home in Los Angeles. "Sure he's up to no good. But it's almost like he can't help himself."

Mel Brooks added the following:

"Tony brings the laughs, a certain charm, and an inescapable charisma," Brooks told the AP. "He's irresistible. Everybody likes Tony Danza."

Curious what Ray Romano thinks of the "Everybody Loves Danza" comment.

Our friend Steve Freiss interviewed Mel Brooks for The Strip Podcast a few weeks ago. As usual, it's a great interview and Mel is in fine form throughout. Check it out... hyah.
