Mario Lopez and Nick Adams: Panties in a Wad

It’s been whispered along the Great White Way that in an effort to show off his “guns,” Mario Lopez has insisted upon wearing short sleeves on the Broadway stage during his Chorus Line performances, instead of the long-sleeve tan sweater traditionally worn by his character, Zach.

Additionally, Lopez has asked that young costar Nick Adams wear more than a tank top to cover his muscles. Ideally, Adams should veil his beefy frame in a baggy hoodie when dancing next to Mario.

Enter men’s underwear company 2(xist).

Page Six reports that Lopez was bumped out of consideration for 2(xist)’s new ad campaign after company reps got an eyeful of Adams.

The company’s creative director, Jason Scarlatti, gushed, “Mario is a good-looking guy, but Nick had it. He’s up and coming, the new face of sexy.”

Hmmm, face isn’t exactly the first word that comes to mind…
