Vincent Pastore Pulls Out of Dancing with the Stars February 28, 2007 5:04 pm

Actor Vincent Pastore (The Sopranos) has pulled out of the hit ABC dancing competition show Dancing with the Stars after a week of training.

Pastore, who is sixty years of age, made the decision after he concluded his body would not be able to undertake the physical demands the ten-week season would require of him.

From the ABC Press Release:

“When I initially committed to joining ‘Dancing with the Stars,’ I didnt realize just how physically demanding it would be for me. Unable to put forth my best effort, I felt it appropriate to step aside and give someone else the opportunity,” said Pastore. “I’d like to thank ABC and the show’s producers for inviting me to participate. I wish my partner, Edyta, and the other dancers the best of luck.”

Executive producer Conrad Green added: “We’re sad that Vincent felt he was unable to continue in the competition, as he would have been great on the show — but we appreciate him standing aside now rather than having to withdraw later. ‘Dancing with the Stars’ is physically demanding and it pays to know your limits. We respect his decision.”
