Nobody puts Diego in a corner – not when he's making his American debut as a leading man. After earning Hollywood props in the Spanish-language film Y Tu Mama Tambien, Diego Luna, 24, is slinking across the dance floor (and making the girls swoon, thanks to a few samba lessons) in Dirty Dancing: Havana Nights, the retooled story of 1987's Dirty Dancing. But Luna's not exactly your older sister's Patrick Swayze. The lanky Mexican actor with the seductive Latin accent has held his own against Salma Hayek (in Frida) and Tom Hanks (in Steven Spielberg's upcoming Terminal), and this time around he plays a character caught up in love and the Cuban revolution.
