Move over, Kanye and 50 Cent! There’s a new rap rivalry: Glee’s Mr. Schu better watch out for the “Two Live Jew”! Royal Pains star Mark Feuerstein is getting rave reviews for the commercial spot in which he raps about his hit USA Network show — and now he’s ready to take on another of TV’s wannabe emcees! “I’m ready to go head-to-head with Mr. Schuester from Glee!” Mark tells In Touch, in reference to Matthew Morrison’s character, who’s rapped along to “Ice Ice Baby” and “Bust A Move” on the Fox musical comedy. “I’ll take him down, any time, any place, you let it be known — let’s have a freestyle beat-down breakdown!”
Rapping has long been an interest of the 38-year-old actor, who also rhymed under the hip-hop name “Two Live Jew” in the Royal Pains “wrap rap” viral video last year. Says Mark, “When I was in seventh grade, I had a bunch of break-dancers come from 125th Street [in NYC] to break-dance at my bar mitzvah party, so I’ve always had a little hip-hop in me. But now, I finally get to let it out!”
Meet Mark and his Royal Pains co-stars today at NYC's Greeley Square (39 W. 32 St. at 6th Avenue), where they’ll be kicking off the Royal Pains Summer Shirt Exchange, where consumers can exchange their gently used summer shirts and in turn receive a Lacoste gift card redeemable for a new shirt at any Lacoste boutique. For every shirt collected, USA will donate $10 to Doctors Without Borders, the international medical humanitarian organization. Royal Pains premieres tonight on USA at 10 p.m. ET.
