Chris Klein character in 'American Reunion' appears in 'Dancing With The Stars'-style show

Last weekend, the new comedy "American Reunion" opened to a strong box office. One side storyline in the film has actor Chris Klein's character participating in a fictional reality TV show called "Celebrity Dance Off."

Sound like anything we know?

In the film, Klein plays a sportscaster named Oz who appears in a dance competition just like "Dancing With The Stars."

With Klein's dance moves, it's hard to believe he didn't have a body double.

"That was me doing the thing, but not without serious help," Klein says. "I know you couldn't tell, but I wasn't born a Hip-Hop dancer. I made myself into this dancing machine"

Klein says they pitched the idea to him that OZ is on a dance show.

"What does that mean? If we're going to do a dance off, we need to do it right," Klein says. "They're popular, don't want to mock, so I gave it my best homage for Oz."
