Hoda gets down on the dance floor with Dean Cain

Dean Cain is perhaps best known for playing Superman in the bygone series "Lois and Clark," but on Thursday, he showed KLG and Hoda his other secret identity — dance superstar.


In his new series, "Hit the Floor," Dean plays a former basketball star turned cheer squad coach, and he showed off some of his moves with the ladies Thursday morning.

"Are you a good dancer?" asked Hoda.

Video: Actor Dean Cain stars in the upcoming VH1 series “Hit the Floor,” playing a pro basketball coach who has the tough job of picking the dancers who help cheer on his team. He tells Kathie Lee and Hoda that the cast is “ridiculously gorgeous,” and shows the ladies how he dances.

"It depends why you asked me that question," said Dean, who knew what was coming. Hoda cranked the Flo Rida and dragged him out for a little impromptu rug cutting. Dean apologized for his lack of flow, especially in light of the recent show-stopping dance-offs that have happened recently.

We're speaking, of course, of the great KLG and Al reenactment of "Step Up." But we think Dean and Hoda would make a pretty decent GIF themselves, don't you?
