Derek Hough, the Dancing With The Stars guy who many have long believed had teeth so white and hair so blond that he couldn’t possibly be human, is taking a break from Dancing with The Stars to pursue a film role.

Says TV Guide:

“The 25-year-old Hough will star in Cobu 3D, scheduled to begin filming this spring. In the movie, Hough will play a New Orleans street dancer who moves to the Big Apple and falls for an Asian drummer from a rival dance group.”

He plans to return to the show in the fall. Hough has led three dancers to win the Mirrorball Trophy. I imagine it would also help for him to give his eyes a rest… all those lights reflecting off the sequins of his partners can’t be good for the retinas.
