Dancing with the Latino Heartthrob

Maybe it's because I'm in the local Dancing with the Philadelphia Stars but I find it ironic that Latino actor, William Levy, is one of the newest cast members on the national Dancing with the Stars. Born in Cuba, Levy moved to the United States at the tender age of 15 and has including acting roles on Telemundo, Univision and even fashion runways. I wonder how he feels about being labeled "the Latin heartthrob." Do we have to tell ABC producers he isn't Latin? Anyways, kudos to another network attempting to find ways to get new viewers.

Below you'll find a a CNN en español clip sort of "bashing" Levy and asking, "Is he really a star or is this bringing him back to stardom." My answer? Considering this is a mainstream television program, this is a new audience for Levy. So yes he is reinventing the wheel. Good for him!
