The most famous tan in Hollywood is coming our way!

George Hamilton, a television and movie star since the late 1950s, will play Georges in the national tour of “La Cage Aux Folles,” the producers announced Wednesday. The production will stop at the Kennedy Center from January 17 to February 12, 2012.

Hamilton, 71, has played every type of leading man: country icon Hank Williams in the 1964 “Your Cheatin’ Heart;” Evel Knievel in a 1971 story about the motorcycle daredevil; Dracula in the 1979 “Love at First Bite,” “Zorro” in the 1981 “Zorro, the Gay Blade” and William Randolph Hearst in the 1997 “Rough Riders.”

His television work has ranged from “Dynasty” in 1981 to appearances on “Dancing With the Stars” in 2005.

His last Broadway role was as Billy Flynn in the revival of “Chicago” in 2001, 2002 and 2007.
