Exclusive: Would DWTS Pro Keo Motsepe Leave The Ballroom For The Small Screen?

Published

Professional dancer Keo Motsepe has made a huge splash on season 19 of ABC’s Dancing With the Stars as the show’s first Black dancer and first representative of his native country, South Africa.

“Everyone so different and I obviously bring something different to the show,” Keo told us during a recent interview in the HipHollywood loft. “For me it’s very important and it’s very big that I do what I love and I keep doing what I do everyday.”

But with all the 24-year-old’s dancing success, would he ever leave the ballroom for the big screen? Not entirely, but he did tell us that “if I get the opportunity to get TV work … I’m open for that.”

During HipHollywood’s chat with the 24-year-old, the dancer also opened up about being the first to be eliminated. Motsepe and his dancing partner, Olympian Lolo Jones opened up the season with a not so stellar Cha Cha, which landed them at the bottom of the leader board.

“It was bad, it was good. Bad for I felt sorry for her to go because I knew if she goes I’m still going to be on the show,” he said. “She was committed, she had a passion for dance.”

You can still see Keo’s killer dance moves on DWTS every Monday/Tuesday nights at 8 p.m. on ABC.

Watch: Julia Roberts And Owen Wilson Give Advice To Their 10-Year-Old Selves

To say Wonder is a must see movie is an understatement! Not only will the film touch you and inspire you to be a better person, it will also entertain you from start to finish.

But don’t take our word for it. HipHollywood sat down with the film’s stars Julia Roberts and Owen Wilson who shared their excitement to bring this heartwarming story to life and how they channeled their real-life parenting skills into the role.

“I think we felt a responsibility to be authentically parents and authentically parents to these two kids, said the 50 year old mother of three. “And I think that’s why you really believe these four people are family and are really having this experience together.”

In the film based on the NY times best seller, Roberts and Wilson play the parents of a teenage daughter (Izabela Vidovic) and 10-year-old boy (Jacob Tremblay) with facial differences entering mainstream elementary school for the first time.

When asked if they had any advice for their ten year old selves, Roberts said: “I have a ten year old son and I tell him to run.”

Meanwhile Wilson says he remembers 5th grade vividly, and enjoyed having his brother Andrew Wilson at the same school to protect him. “It helped so much having an older brother who was already at the school, so that would be the advice I’d give, have a cool older brother.”

Wonder hits theaters November 17, just one day before Wilson’s 49th birthday.
