New “Dancing With The Stars” Cast Revealed
If you missed the announcement on “Good Morning America” this morning, the cast of the new season of “Dancing With The Stars” was announced. Like every season, there have been rumors swirling about who will be in the cast, but now we know who the entire cast will be. Names like Ryan Lochte, Leah Remini, Snooki, John Stamos (be still my heart), and Valerie Harper have been brought up over the past few months. Did they make it? Do you have any guesses? See if you’re right after the jump!
Best known for her role as wife Carrie on the hit show “King Of Queens”, Remini has been in the spotlight lately because she has been speaking out against Scientology after leaving the religion. I don’t know how light on her feet she is, but I’ve always enjoyed her, so let’s see what she’s got.
Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi
Snooki is a real piece of work, but this is definitely an interesting choice. In the beginning of “The Jersey Shore”, Snook was about the most uncoordinated person I’ve ever seen. However, she’s been doing a lot of working out since the birth of her son, and now looks better than ever (and I’m guessing learned a few moves along the way).
Son of Ozzy, Osbourne had a pretty tumultuous 2012. He was blessed by the birth of his daughter, but almost at the exact same time was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis. Will his MS prove to be a problem for Osbourne on the dance floor? My guess is not so much. Not to mention, Jack isn’t the only Osbourne to have ever hit the DWTS stage – his sister, Kelly, was part of the cast in 2009.
As a total nerd, this is the name I was most excited to hear. Best known, of course, as Bill Nye The Science Guy, it’ll be interesting to see what kind of moves Bill has on the dance floor. And if he’ll always be wearing a lab coat. (Judging by his poses at the “Man Of Steel” premiere, he’s going to need a lot of help.)
Best known to most people from my generation as Jessie Spanno from “Saved By The Bell”, Elizabeth Berkley will make an interesting addition to the DWTS cast. We know that she has moves based on the 1995 move “Showgirls”, but does she have the right kind of moves to impress the judges?
Rounding out the cast we have:
Christina Millian – singer/songwriter/actress.
Valerie Harper – Actress best known for her role as Rhoda on “The Mary Tyler Moore Show”.
Brant Daugherty – Actor best known for his role as Noel Kahn on the show “Pretty Little Liars”.
Keyshawn Johnson – former NFL player. (Side note: the former football players tend to do very, very well on DWTS.)
Corbin Bleu – Best known for his roles in the “High School Musical” series.
Amber Riley – Actress best known for her roll as Mercedes on “Glee”.
Bill Engvall – Comedian best known for his “Here’s Your Sign” bit, and part of the Blue Collar Comedy Group”.
