About Harvey's guest:


Today’s guest, Antonio Sabato Jr., is a highly popular and immensely likeable actor, producer and writer who first made a splash as Janet Jackson’s sexy dancing partner in her hugely successful 1990 music video, “Love Will Never Do Without You”.  


He then went on to play the charismatic “John Jagger Cates” in the daytime drama, “General Hospital”, earning 3 Soap Opera Digest Award nominations.  He returned to that role in 2008 in “General Hospital: Night Shift”.   


He’s appeared in many feature films and TV movies including “The Big Hit”, “High Voltage”, “Fatal Error”, “Mindstorm”, “Ghost Voyage”, “If Looks Could Kill”, “Shark Hunter”, “Guilty as Charged”, “Drifter: Henry Lee Lucas”, for which he won a Best Actor Award at the Beverly Hills Film Festival, “Grace By Night”, for which he won TWO Best Actor Awards at prestigious international film festivals, “One Nation Under God”, for which he won TWO Best Supporting Actor Awards at the Christian Film Festival, and of course, he also appeared in the wonderful 1999 miniseries, “Tribe”.   


You’ve also seen him in dozens of TV shows including “Earth 2”, “Melrose Place”, “Charmed”, “The Help”, “Hilton Head Island”, and he portrayed “Dante Damiano” on “The Bold and the Beautiful”, earning 2 NAACP Image Award nominations for Outstanding Actor in a Daytime Drama Series.   He’s also starred in 2 reality shows: “My Antonio”, and the immensely popular “Fix it and Finish it”, in addition to appearing many times on “The Balance”, starring Eric Bolling.  And who can forget his sexy dance routines with Cheryl Burke in Season 19 of “Dancing with the Stars”?  


And if all of that weren’t enough, in the late-90s, our guest became a global sensation as a model and representative for Calvin Klein.  His iconic photos wearing Calvin Klein underwear appeared in EVERY magazine, and he was even featured on a 90 foot billboard overlooking Times Square, causing traffic to stop and hearts to palpitate.  In 1999 our guest released a terrific book entitled, “No Excuses: Workout for Life”, all about his approach to physical fitness and a healthy lifestyle.  That book sold 300,000 copies.  


And in 2020, he released a deeply personal, heartfelt and poignant memoir entitled, “Sabato:  The Untold Story”, chronicling his family history, his determination to succeed, and his resilience in an industry that can sometimes be brutal.  He also provides a frank account of the struggles he faced as an actor seeking to continue his film and television career following his groundbreaking speech at the 2016 Republican National Convention and his run for Congress.  The book is now being revised to include great photographs and updated chapters about our guest’s newly revitalized career.   After reading his book, I was compelled to invite him on our show, because he has an inspirational story that everyone needs to hear.
