Once-upon-a-time Teen Idol Frankie Avalon recently told a Laughlin Entertainer reporter that he sees David Archuleta approaching his former Teen Dream status:
Q. Is there anyone out there these days who comes close to the teen idol status you achieved?
A. There are a few. Justin Timberland. He’s extremely talented and I keep hoping he has a career that will last. I also like David Archuleta, I just saw him on a video the other day. He’s doing a lot of good stuff.
Does David have a Beach Blanket Bingo in his future? You decide.
