Tommy Bracco, who recently appeared on Broadway as bellhop Giulio in Pretty Woman, enters a different suite this summer as a contestant on Big Brother. The CBS reality competition returns for its 21st season in a two-night premiere June 25 and 26.
The Staten Island native is one of 16 contestants vying for $500,000 dollars; those competing with him include a wine safari guide, a petroleum engineer, a preschool aide, and a therapist. Check out the full roster here.
In addition to Pretty Woman, Bracco has appeared on the New York stage in Broadway’s Newsies, A Chorus Line at New York City Center, and Off-Broadway’s The Hairy Ape.
He's not the first Broadway alum to appear on the series. Frankie J. Grande (Rock of Ages, Mamma Mia!) competed in the 16th season and was later a contestant on the U.K.'s Celebrity Big Brother.
