Ask Stacy -- Week of 0407
DEAR STACY: Can you tell us what happened to the actor who played Gordo on "Lizzie McGuire"? — Jennifer in Ohio
DEAR JENNIFER: Adam Lamberg is now 27 and living back in his native New York, where he keeps up with fans — some — on Twitter. His last film project was the 2008 independent feature "Beautiful Loser." He also made the 2005 indie comedy "When Do We Eat?" after "Lizzie" concluded its run. And he attended UC Berkeley.
DEAR STACY: What a fun commercial Target has with items being magically transformed from white to spring colors by acrobatic dancers. The song is "Alouette." Who performs this version, and is it available to buy? — Mary D., Alpena, Ark.
DEAR MARY: The Delta Rhythm Boys, and yes, you can download it from iTunes.
DEAR STACY: Please settle a question. Someone told me that Dodgers pitcher Ron Bellisario is related to the TV producer Don Bellisario of "NCIS" and "Quantum Leap" fame. Considering that the pitcher is African American and I believe the producer is of Italian ancestry, I doubt it.
DEAR BLAKE: No. The pitcher, whose name is spelled with one "l" — Belisario — is actually a native of Venezuela, and he's no relation to the prolific, Pennsylvania-born TV creator. Don's seven children do include Troian Bellisario, who plays Spencer Hastings on "Pretty Little Liars."
DEAR STACY: Whatever happened to Chris Burke, the Down Syndrome actor of "Life Goes On"? — J.C., Chattanooga, Tenn.
DEAR J.C.: Chris Burke, a.k.a. Corky Thatcher from that '80s series, travels across the United States and Canada performing with friends Joe and John DeMasi — while promoting Down Syndrome awareness. The guys, who are based out of New York, have a 3-piece folk band. Chris also works as a consultant for the National Down Syndrome Society and occasionally acts. He was seen as a custodian in the big screen "Mona Lisa Smile."
