Larry King has been spotted recently getting his dance on -- to promote heart health in people of all ages through a new public service campaign, "Dance 4 Your Life!"
After being interviewed by Angelina Ballerina, the suspenders-clad King and Nigel Lythgoe demonstrate that, well, just about any kind of dance will do when it comes to staying active. Rumor has it there are rather fabulous outtakes floating around from the PSA shoot, though a vast media conspiracy appears to be keeping King's best moves under wraps.
"Dance is an activity that is universally recognized and accessible across all socioeconomic levels, making it an ideal approach to promoting heart health," King, 77, said on his cardiac foundation's website, pointing out that it had partnered with the Dizzy Feet Foundation folks (Katie Holmes, Carrie Ann Inaba, Adam Shankman and Lythgoe, who appears willing to dance with just about anyone) "to address Americans' increasingly sedentary lifestyles and the resulting health issues."
"So You Think You Can Dance" judge Shankman, incidentally, is the director and choreographer on "Rock of Ages," currently filming in Miami and starring Holmes' husband, Tom Cruise.
The Larry King Cardiac Foundation, which funds heart surgery in patients who otherwise could not afford care, came about after the longtime CNN host recovered from a 1987 quintuple bypass.
Sunshine arms, everyone, sunshine arms.
