"I think it would be interesting if he actually gets into the Joffrey ballet, but I also think it might be fun to make that trip to New York or L.A. to become a dancer," Shum, 30, told me at the Dizzy Feet Foundation's Celebration of Dance gala.
"Or maybe he wants to be more than just dancing," he added. "It happens with a lot of dancers. You come and you dance in companies but you see all these other people making money doing all these things like choreographing."
Dancer or not, Shum insists he doesn't know what producers have in store for Mike. "I think they're still trying to figure out where everyone else is," he said.
In fact, he's still waiting to hear what he'll be doing in the big second Britney Spears tribute episode.
"I wasn't as much a part of it in the first one so hopefully the second one I can because I've got some Britney Spears moves," he said, adding, "I'd like to do 'Sometimes' or 'Crazy.'
That's from when everyone was on the Britney bandwagon…Those are classics."
