Jesse Metcalfe has his game face on!
As anticipation continues to grow for the season premiere of Dancing With the Stars, many pop culture fans are eagerly waiting to see how Carole Baskin, Chrishell Stause and other competitors perform in the ballroom.
But perhaps viewers should keep their eyes on Jesse as he prepares for a whole new experience on the small screen.
“Yeah, I’m doing this for the experience and also to win,” the former Desperate Housewives star told E! News and other reporters during a press conference on Sept. 9. “I don’t do anything to fail, you know. I put 110 percent of myself into everything I do and I think the reason why ultimately I decided to do the show and why I’ve been a fan of the show over the years is I just have a great reverence for the art of dance.”
In fact, Jesse is hoping the moves he learns on the ABC series will lead to new opportunities outside of the movie or TV space. “I’m hoping that this turns into an opportunity on Broadway,” he shared.
