As reunited boy bands like New Kids on the Block and Backstreet Boys continue to tour the globe, other boy bands like 98 Degrees contemplate a reunion, and new boy bands like The Wanted and One Direction find success in the States, there is yet another group that is still plotting its comeback.
“We’re in the process of getting [the reunion] green-lit by MTV,” Alex Solowitz revealed to me on “The Ralphie Radio Show.” Alex played Mickey Parke in the faux-boy band 2Ge+her. Yes, the reunion you heard about last November still has a very real chance of happening. “We have all the original songwriters… everybody is on board. All the producers that we had are on board.”
It seems as if the last piece in the puzzle is the network. Solowitz said MTV likes the idea, and is just waiting to see how much more interest the guys can generate.
“I think there’s a good place for us at MTV,” Solowitz said. “We can have some pregnant teenagers, if they want. We can get some ‘Jersey Shore’ dudes too.”
Nice to see that Solowitz hasn’t lost his sense of humor or that edge that his character Mickey displayed over 10 years ago with 2Gether. Noah Bastian, Evan Farmer, and Kevin Farley are also on tap for the reunion. Michael Cuccione passed away after a battle with cancer in 2001. He died just eight days after his 16th birthday. Solowitz said in a previous interview that a portion of the proceeds from the group’s return would benefit Cuccione’s foundation. And one of those performances is right around the corner.
“We’re doing a little teaser show May 4 at the Jon Lovitz [Comedy Club],” Solowitz said. “Evan can’t make it because he’s having a baby, he’s got a new born coming.”
Who would’ve thought that you plus me would end up equaling a baby?
