Philadelphia really wanted to see Mario Lopez (and those dimples).

The actor and "Extra" host was slapped with a lawsuit in March by a Philadelphia man for allegedly failing to appear as a host for an event.

Court documents state that Robert "Bobby" Capone is suing Lopez for not fulfilling his job as a host for a concert event at the Roxy/and or Penn's Landing Caterers in Philadelphia on Oct. 27, 2012.

According to the lawsuit, Lopez was to be paid an appearance fee of $15,000, and was given $8,000 in advance. Capone states that on Oct. 10, Lopez's team notified him that he would not be attending because of "new commitments" that have "just arose." Capone is suing Lopez for consumer fraud, bad faith dealing, breach of contract and fraud in the inducement.

Because of the last minute cancellation, Capone said he suffered losses estimated at $5,000 but he is demanding a judgment against Lopez in the amount of $50,000.

Lopez's rep was not immediately available for comment.
