Kenny Ortega, who choreographed Dirty Dancing, has signed on to direct a remake of the 1987 classic, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
"The opportunity to direct Dirty Dancing is like returning home for me," Ortega said. "Growing up in the '60s on the dance floor helped define me as a person and as an artist. I am looking forward ...

Question: Were you merely suggesting Diego Luna for the role of the Latino hunk on Lost, or is there some actual negotiating going on (Ask Ausiello 5/31)? That would be just plain awesome!

Question: What do you think about this for the three new characters they are looking for on Lost: Famke Janssen as the "leader," Elisha Cuthbert as the girl in her "early twenties" and Matt Cedeno (Days of Our Lives) as the "Latino hunk."
Answer: I've got three better ideas: Roberta Weiss (Santa Barbara), Emily VanCamp and Y Tu Mama Tambien's Diego Luna.
Mexican actor Diego Luna — who gained indie film fame in Y Tu Mama Tambien — was all set to be this generation's Patrick Swayze. The 24-year-old hottie was sure he could play a mysterious Cuban who woos a young American girl and teaches her Latin rhythm in Dirty Dancing: Havana Nights. Just one small problem: He had two left feet!
"I didn't know how to dance at all," Luna admits to TV Guide Online. "I was really bad at dancing." Jokingly, he adds: "We Mexicans, we know how to drink. We know how to sing. But you try on a mariachi outfit and try to move, and you'll see how stiff the mariachi outfit is!
"And Cubans, they all dance beautifully," he continues. "It is amazing how good they are, because when they are, like, 4 years old, they are dancing."
