Zara Aina Aims To Make American Actors Cultural Ambassadors

Lucas Caleb Rooney’s agents may not be thrilled with the benefit he’s throwing next week, but that’s kind of the point. On Nov. 26, Rooney’s organization, Zara Aina, will host its Big Ol’ Fancy Pants Inaugural Benefit at the 52nd Street Project Theater.

Pisoni's parents founded the Pickle Family Circus in 1974 in San Francisco. His father was the ringmaster and chief clown, Lorenzo Pickle; his mother was a juggler as well as the costume designer and executive director.

Daniel Radcliffe has confessed to a gay crush - the actor finds his Equus male co-star Lorenzo Pisoni "gorgeous".

The Harry Potter star finds Pisoni so attractive, he wouldn't hesitate to marry him - if he was homosexual.

He says, "We're getting on very well indeed. I've written some really, really deeply sexual things on some of the cards I've given him for opening night. But just to wind him up, you know.

"He's great. He's a truly remarkable man. You know, if I was gay or a female I'd, well, just want to marry him. He's gorgeous, and he's a really cool bloke as well. He's great."
