Idol worship: Paolo Andino, actor.
- He recently joined LOGO's Big Gay Sketch Show during its second season, increasing the show's hunk factor -- and talent quotient -- considerably.
- Notable characters have included Antonio Banderas (on Dancing With the Stars, naturally) and Dynasty's Blake Carrington, but his breakout character has got to be Naldo, the sexy WeHo Express delivery man who knows how to (ahem) handle a package.
- On film, he has appeared in the independent features Choking Man and Shut Up and Do It!; he has also paid his TV dues on the soaps (One Life To Live, As the World Turns, Guiding Light) and the requisite Law & Order appearance (a must for any New York based actor).
- A Master of Fine Arts degree holder, he has appeared onstage in everything from Shakespeare to experimental theater.
- Starting next week, he and fellow Sketch-er Jonny McGovern will have their own vlog on AfterElton.com; in the meantime, the site offers a sneak peek of Paolo -- along with his adorable boyfriend Matt Cronin.
