Derek Hough Shimmies His Way Into A Movie Role

| Filed under: Film Flickers


His sister isn't the only actor-dancer in the family!

Dancing with the Stars' Derek Hough has landed himself a movie role.

He will be starring in Cobu 3D opposite BoA, who is Asia's top recording artist.

BoA and Derek will play dancers from opposite worlds who fall in love. Their romance is threatened, however, when the rivalry between their brothers' competing dance clubs in the Gotham's underground scene becomes dangerous.

Sounds like it's a modern twist on a classic tale a la West Side Story.

Seems like the perfect role for Derek!

    I would see this! I love Derek.

    Also, thanks for not calling him "Gayface" for once.

  2. 2

    The plot sounds like a bunch of other movies.

  3. 3

    Don't know who the guy is. But loooooooooove BoA.

  4. 4

    Wow original plot, will obviously be going to see this!

    BOA Asia's top artist? WTF? Yeah she wishes. Utada is WAY BETTER singer than BoA. She's a good dancer though. The movie will suck anyways just like every other crappy hollywood dance movie.

    Major GayFace

    Re: Japanesedominicanbaby – Utada Hikaru's awesome, and I do like her voice better than BoA's sometimes, but she's not ASIA's top recording artist. BoA deserves that title because she's huge in not only Korea, but Japan and China as well. Utada on the other hand, is not.

    Anyway, I'm SOO glad to see BoA gain a hollywood movie debut! :D

    I'm pretty sure Utada Hikaru is more succesfull than BoA overall, on top of that BoA's English is nothing short of terrible.

    OMG YAY, BOA!!!!!!!!!

  15. 15

    Yes! I love BoA so much! So glad she is getting exposure here in the west after her album was sort of a flop here. Looking forward to seeing this movie!!

    Re: Japanesedominicanbaby – what is Utada doing here ? ask her to dance like BoA and see what happens :) )

  17. 17

    BoA let's go !!!!! :)

  18. 18

    Love Derek! Can't wait for this! He'll be great!

  19. 19

    cant wait to see it, hope he has a lot of success with this movie and goes back on dwts soon =] since the show wont be the same without him

  20. 20

    Love,love,love him.

  21. 21

    I'm guessing BoA is a dude?

    Re: Waboo – BoA's english isn't that great but Utada was born and raised in the States until 13 so Utada's got that advantage. I'm a fan of Utada but BoA is more successful. She's the only non-Japanese Asian to have 2 million-selling albums in Japan and is 1 of only 2 artists to have 6 consecutive number-1 studio albums on the Oricon charts. She's huge in Korea, China and Japan. BOA released 22 albums compared 2 Utada's 11. So that tells you, she's been successful ever since she was 13.
