More good news for Mario Lopez, who already has been spared having to display that garish Dancing with the Stars trophy in his home: Variety reports that the former Saved by the Bell beefcake has inked a talent holding deal with the CW, as part of which the network will either develop a starring vehicle for Lopez or cast him in a fall 2007 pilot.

Hmm, a CW pilot? That Dancing disco ball is starting to look good after all....
