William Levy was at the top of Spanish PEOPLE’s 50 sexiest men of 2011, starred opposite Jennifer Lopez in her music video for ‘I’m Into You,’ and now we’ll be seeing him on the upcoming season of ‘Dancing with the Stars.’

ABC needed at least one heartthrob, and quite frankly Jack Wagner and Roshon Fegan just didn’t cut it. And what a heartthrob it picked.

Levy was offered a spot in the hunk-filled cast of ‘Magic Mike,’ where he could have starred as a sexy male stripper alongside Channing Tatum, Joe Manganiello and Matt Bomber. But no, Levy had to turn it down (you know, ’cause he’s obviously too sexy for the role) in order to pursue different projects in Hollywood.

Clearly this was a bad move on his part because only celebs on the B List and below are asked to dance on the show. Taking your shirt off and becoming an international sex symbol? Or shaking your butt to ballroom music alongside Cheryl Burke for a television audience? Is the better choice not clear?
