Mario Lopez      

Actor & Entertainment Journalist

There are many words to describe actor Mario Lopez, but "active" seems to fit the best. Whether he is hosting the popular entertainment news show EXTRA, and MTV's top rated America's Best Dance Crew, or traveling around the country on behalf of the Boys & Girls Club, Lopez is always on the move.

Lopez is not a newcomer to show business. Many people remember him as A.C. Slater on the hit coming-of-age TV show Saved by the Bell. Working steadily ever since, he has starred in several television series, in films, and on Broadway in A Chorus Line. He also was the runner-up on Season 3 of the hit TV show Dancing With the Stars, where Mario's fit physique garnered national attention.

In response to the overwhelming interest in how he stays so fit, Lopez wrote Mario Lopez's Knockout Fitness, a bestselling book that offers readers a look into Lopez's workout regime, and most recently, The New York Times bestseller Extra Lean, The Fat-Burning Plan That Changes The Way You Eat For Life, a guide to healthy and balanced eating. He also co-authored a children's book, Mud Tacos, with his sister.

Not only does Lopez have a penchant for the entertainment industry and health and fitness, he is also an avid sports fan. Lopez has taken his love for sports, specifically boxing, to the next level as a recurring commentator on HBO Boxing.

Dedicated to giving back to the community, Lopez also serves as the Alumni Ambassador of Fitness by the Boys & Girls Clubs of America (BGCA), whose ranks include other prominent alumni Denzel Washington and President Clinton. As part of the organization's BE GREAT campaign, Lopez helps bring to light the major issues affecting today's young people, including the importance of graduating from high school, maintaining a healthy lifestyle, as well as the key role community-based organizations play in the positive development of children.
