What Has Five Robes, No Subpoena Power and the Right to Rumba? Jay Leno's Dancing Itos
Judge Ito himself has watched the routines with delight. Perhaps he dreams of such happy feet. After all, says Leno, who performed stand-up for the sequestered jury in April, "you see this man up there getting barraged by all these fast-talking lawyers. You don't see him laugh or smile." At the end of the day, says Leno, it's easy to imagine Ito shifting into "gotta dance" mode. "Plus," he adds, with a nod to one of David Letterman's gags, "the name 'Ito' is fun to say. It's like 'Buttafuoco.' "
Choreographer Mary Ann Kellogg encourages the dancers—Nito Larioza, 23, Tym Buacharern, 25, Danny Lee, 27, Hoang Ho, 21, and Michael Gregory, 29—to keep things spontaneous. "We watch the trial to pick up his mannerisms," says Gregory—who also performed in Madonna's latest video, "Human Nature," thrusting his head between her legs—"like the way he puts his index finger and thumb up to his chin." When not in session, "we don't hang out together," says Larioza, who lives in the Hollywood Hills with his girlfriend, dancer Shaula Vega (the Itos are all single). "But we see each other at auditions and dance classes, and that's cool. We share this bond."
And, unlike some courtroom observers, the Itos, who are paid $600 each for the spots, don't mind if the case stretches on forever. "Lance!" exclaims Gregory. "I love that man! He keeps me working!"
