Bacchus 2013

Posted:

Actor G.W. Bailey will reign as Bacchus 2013 when the Mardi Gras krewe rolls next month.  Bailey is known for his roles in the "Police Academy" movies and the cable TV crime drama, "The Closer."  Clark Brennan, who chaired the krewe's selection committee, says Bailey was a natural choice to reign in their Feb. 10 parade.  He says Bailey is a regular visitor of New Orleans and "his charitable work made him a perfect fit for Bacchus."  Bailey is executive director of The Sunshine Kids Foundation, a non-profit for young cancer patients. Brennan says several of the children and their families will participate in this year's parade.  Bailey joins past Bacchus celebrity monarchs, including Saints quarterback Drew Brees and actors Will Ferrell, James Gandolfini, and Kirk Douglas.
