In the 1997 film “Breaking the Surface: The Greg Louganis Story,” in which he played the Olympic Gold Medalist Greg Louganis, Lopez played his next important part and received praise from critics.

In 2003, he served as host of special programs, including “Miss Teen USA 2003” and “Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve.”

2006, Lopez found success when his career received a much-needed lift from the celebrity dancing competition “Dancing with the Stars,” where he placed second.

In the same year, he also appeared briefly on the television program “The Bold and the Beautiful,” was hired to host the short-lived program “ESPN Hollywood,” and landed a recurrent part on the program “Nip/Tuck.”

He was contracted to host two additional programs in 2008, the still-running “Extra” and “America’s Best Dance Crew.”

In addition to playing a supporting part in the movie “Husband for Hire,” he made his Broadway debut in the new production of the song “A Chorus Line.” That year, he also released his first book, Mario Lopez Knockout Fitness.

He released a best-selling cookbook titled “Extra Lean” in 2010. In the reality series “Mario Lopez: Saved By the Baby,” which depicts Lopez and his wife’s lives soon before the birth of their kid, he also made an appearance with his wife.

He released the children’s book “Mario and Baby Gia” in 2011. A new cookbook called “Extra Lean Family” was released the following year. He also started presenting the radio program “ON With Mario Lopez” the same year.
