Remember Center Stage’s Ethan Stiefel?
September 3rd, 2020 under Center Stage, Remember?. [ Comments: none ]


Back in 2000, there was a movie that hit the big screen, and audiences fell in love with Center Stage. So much so, that 20 years later we are still talking about it, and the cast Amanda Schull, Zoe Saldana, Sascha Radetsky, and Ethan Stiefel.

We know what Schull (Suits) and Saldana (Star Trek, Avastar) look like because they have continued acting since their film debuts. However, what do the two men, who are professional dancers look like? We found that out this week when the four of them took part in a reunion on the American Ballet Theatre’s YouTube channel. Radetsky looks almost exactly the same, except now he has facial hair.

That is him, what about Stiefel, who played the sexy Cooper Nielson? Yes, I was Team Cooper. Anyways, he no longer looks like a ballet dancer. Instead, he looks like a Folk-Rock singer form the ’70s. The ballerino has long blonde hair, pale skin, and a long goatee with a thick mustache. I never would have recognized him in a million years. If it wasn’t for his voice, I would think he was an imposter.

I am not knocking him, it is his life and he can style himself however he wants. But he is so the perfect February 2020/September 2020 meme.

Are you as shocked by his transformation as I am?

Amanda Schull is a mom, and her Center Stage co-star Ethan Stiefel, is not the dad. Actually, her husband, of 8 years, George Wilson, is the father of their son, who they welcomed on Febraury 25th.

The Suits’ star told People, his name is George Paterson Wilson VI, and they “are going with Paterson, but accepting any and all nickname suggestions!” I suggest they go with Patter as in the patter of little feet.

Can you tell that Center Stage is one of my favorite movies? I cannot believe it turns 20 this year. It makes me feel old.


Center Stage: On Pointe is on point!
June 25th, 2016 under Center Stage, Lifetime. [ Comments: none ]

Center Stage is one of my all-time favorite movies, so I have been waiting a long time for it to get a descent sequel. Tonight at 8p on Lifetime it gets just that with Center Stage: On Pointe.
Jonathan Reeves is still running the ABC, for the time being. Their biggest donor wants to see more modern ballet performances. If he doesn’t deliver, then she won’t deliver her money to him. Knowing he needs the money, he decides to hold auditions for classically trained and modern dancers. Bella (Nicole Muñoz), who is not a ballerina, never thought she would have a chance to be a member of ABT, but now she does.
She auditions and she gets into the summer camp that could lead to her getting in to the Academy. Along with several dancers, she will spend the next few weeks taking dance classes. At the end of it, they will audition again but this time they will officially become members of the American Ballet Academy.
It will be tough time for all. It’s old vs new and both sides won’t get along. Some will drop out, some will be injured and one person will be kicked out. Who will get it and who will go home will surprise you as much as by how enjoyable this telemovie is which also stars Sascha Radetsky and Ethan Stiefel from the original film.
I just have to add that Dance Moms’ Chloe Lukasiak was completely under utilized in this movie. I can’t count how many lines she had in the movie on one hand, yet she is in most of it. She was always the true star of the show, even though some people wanted us to believe otherwise.


Zoe Saldana could still take center stage without makeup

Zoe Saldana shared a makeup free Selfie and the mother of twin toddler boys is just as stunning without the mask. Seriously, isn’t she just gorgeous with or without makeup.


Gossip Girl takes Center Stage tonight!!!
November 8th, 2010 under Center Stage, Gossip Girl. [ Comments: none ]

Center Stage’s and ABT principal dancer Ethan Stiefel is going to guest star on Gossip Girl tonight on The CW at 9p with his girlfriend Gillian Murphy. I am not sure what role he is going to play on the show, but does it really matter?
C’mon admit it, who else besides me has had a major crush on him since Center Stage because his dancing was so beautiful in it. I can seriously watch that movie over and over and over again.
Now when it comes to GG, I gave the show up earlier in the season, but I will be tuning in tonight just for him!!!
