SEINFELD star JOHN O'HURLEY's dancing skills have helped him stage an acting comeback - and lose a little weight.

The grey-haired actor, who played PETERMAN in the hit 1990s sitcom, has become the star of US TV ballroom dancing show Dancing With The Stars and the reality series has helped boost his flagging career.

O'Hurley, who made the finals last night (06JUL05), admits he's lost nine kilograms (20 pounds) competing in the dancing talent contest and now his career has been given a boost.

He and partner CHARLOTTE JORGENSEN, a professional dancer, have been invited to strut their stuff in New York City's famous Broadway theatre district.

He says, "There is some talk about us going to Broadway together - it's already in the works."
