Olympic medalist Danell Leyva headed to Hollywood

Olympic gymnast Danell Leyva, 24, wasn't supposed to be on the team to compete at the Rio Olympic games. But as fate would have it, a U.S. Men's Gymnastics teammate was injured and Leyva was added to the roster.

The son of Cuban Olympic team gymnasts went on to win two silver medals: one on the horizontal bars and the other in the parallel bars.

So what's next for Leyva?

"I want to dabble in acting and see how that works out. I am trying to move to L.A. to see if I can get into acting," said Leyva.

While growing up in Miami, Leyva performed in various live productions.

Cosmopolitan magazine said he was one of the hottest athletes of the 2016 Summer Games.

"I think that's hilarious," said Leyva.

He is also helping to promote a healthy life style as a spokesperson for MilkLife.com.
