Apr 09, 2014 · Frost’s follow-up, Cuban Fury, might not be quite what his growing legions of fans may have been expecting from him, though. It’s a fairly lightweight romantic comedy, one that features a strong Latin dance component. Let that sink in for a moment. A romantic comedy with Frost as a “rom-com” star. One in which he dances. A lot.

The answer is, thankfully, yes. Cuban Fury is a great vehicle for Frost - he grounds the fun, loopy, cheerful dance comedy in something a little more real and affecting, even if the film doesn't quite hit the brilliant heights of the aforementioned Cornetto Trilogy.
Cuban Fury was his idea. As surprising as it is that Frost, known as a slapstick-style comedian, would want to play a salsa dancer, it's even more surprising that he created the role for himself.
Nicholas John Frost (born 28 March 1972) is a British actor, comedian, screenwriter, producer, painter and author. He has appeared in the Three Flavours Cornetto trilogy of films, consisting of Shaun of the Dead (2004), Hot Fuzz (2007), and The World's End (2013), and the television comedy Spaced (1999–2001).
