Any stories on him?

He knows how to post a link.

Do be snarky R1, you're an amateur. I would have posted about Karl too, he deserves it. He's terrific on stage. He was the UPS man in "Legally Blonde" opposite his wife Orfeh. Met them a few times at The Broadway Cares Equity Fights AIDS Flea Market.

Andy Karl, a Broadway actor who has shown a knack for musical comedy (“The Mystery of Edwin Drood,” “Legally Blonde”) and romantic warmth (“9 to 5,” “Wicked”), will star as Rocky Balboa in the $15 million boxing musical “Rocky” that is set to begin performances at the Winter Garden Theater in February, the producers announced on Monday.

I thought this was going to be about a revival of The Rocky Horror Picture Show.

Instead it's about that ridiculous boxing movie.

Really? That's what you get out of "Rocky"? Too bad for you.

Yeah, I said it: "Ree-dickaluss!"

Are there only four book writers left for big broadway musicals? Look at Meehan's more recent credits - Elf, Chaplin, Cry Baby, Young Frankenstein, Death Takes a Holiday.

Hot, nice and deserving.

I don't think R1 was implying that the OP is Andy Karl himself. I think he meant, "Andy Karl would know how to properly add a link to a post," which OP does not.

Never saw any of the films. Doubt turning this dreck into a musical will lure me into watching it.

R9 - Thank you.

Who are these assholes that think "Rocky" is dreck? It's based on the Oscar winning film. It was great movie that was an even better love story about two lonely people. Whatever the subsequent films were, they take nothing away from the greatness of the original.

The hits keep on coming!!!

R12, honey, 'Oscar winning' means nothing in many cases.

Love Story was nominated for seven Oscars, and it's a piece of shit.

Geez. Accidentally posted the link in the Author box and I get pounced on by the losers who can't cough up $18 to post their own threads.

But please enjoy the story about hunky Andy Karl.

You're welcome!

I never watched the original Rocky because it beat Network for best picture. I've never seen any of the Rocky or Rambo movies. Not a Stallone fan.
