AJ Benza Lands "Born in the USA"

Our blog pal and one-time sparring partner AJ Benza landed a Fox pilot. Anyone who can go fifteen-rounds with The Corsair is okay in our book. From our favorite superhero gossip duo Rush and Molloy:

"'American Idol' creator Simon Fuller is hatching another hit. He's starting production on a Fox pilot that transplants the U.K.'s immortal 'EastEnders' to Philadelphia. Tentatively titled 'Born in the U.S.A.,' it's about the entwined lives of three ethnic families. Our former Daily News gossip sister, A.J. Benza, has landed the part of Dom Grabowski, a Polish tavern owner with a very hot wife. (A.J. jokes that his real-life wife, Lola, 'will want to be on the set for this one.')"

Best of luck, AJ. And if you get to the East Coast, drop The Corsair an email and we'll get scotched up.
