USA Today is reporting that William Levy is among those who will be shakin’ their things on the 14th season of Dancing with the Stars.

The Cuban telenovela star will be facing off against fellow actors Roshon Fegan, Melissa Gilbert, Jack Wagner, and Jaleel White, as well as the Green Bay Packers’ Donald Driver and tennis superstar Martina Navratilova. Singers Gavin DeGraw, Katherine Jenkins, and Gladys Knight will also be dancing towards the mirror-ball trophy. Rounded out the pack are television personalities Maria Menounos and Sherri Shepherd.

It appears 31-year-old Levy may be looking to be the next Latino crossover, as his first introduction to an English-speaking audience was as Antonio of VH1’s Single Ladies.

DWTS’s Season 14 is scheduled to premiere on March 19th at 8 p.m. ET/PT, but for those that can’t wait that long to see the man who graced the cover of People en Español’s Sexiest Men of the Year issue, you can always watch him in the telenovelas Triunfo del Amor and Cuidado con el Angel.

Will Levy be the second Latino in a row to win DWTS? Last year war veteran-turned actor J.R. Martinez won the trophy after continuously impressing both viewers and the judges.
