Cine Latino covers, well, all things relating to Latino culture and the movies, every Friday.
Mexican-American newcomer Ryan Guzman makes his debut as the lead in the fourth installment of the Step Up franchise, playing a waiter at an ultra-posh Miami hotel who during his off hours heads a dance crew known as "The Mob," made up of cutting-edge dancers, musicians and artists. Together they form flash mobs using the streets of Miami as their staging ground for complex choreography and imaginative scenarios.
You’d never guess, but prior to filming Guzman had no professional dance training; in fact, he didn’t even know how to dance. The 24-year-old actor landed the lead role thanks to his Mixed Martial Arts skills and charisma and he candidly admits the audition process was terrifying.
