Maksim Chmerkovskiy vs. Derek Hough: Who Would Be Better in Dirty Dancing?

In a new Us Weekly video, Dancing With the Stars pro Maksim Chmerkovskiy discusses his acting ambitions.

“I would really love to try acting,” he said. Someone compared him to Wedding Crashers actor Vince Vaughn, but he sees himself as a little more serious. He also mentions the Dirty Dancing remake saying, “I’m a dancer. [If] Dirty Dancing comes up I’d love to give it a try. Honestly, I would do anything, I just want to have fun.”

When plans for a Dirty Dancing remake were announced in August, the original Baby — and DWTS Season 11 winner — Jennifer Grey gave it her seal of approval. DWTS judge Carrie Ann Inaba said Jennifer’s pro partner, Derek Hough, would be perfect in Patrick Swayze’s former role, alongside Glee’s Lea Michele.

What do you think? We have no idea which actors director Kenny Ortega is considering for the role, but would you prefer to see Derek or Maks keep Baby out of corners?
