ABC announced the cast for the 11th cycle of “Dancing With the Stars” Monday night with a live press conference during “Bachelor Pad” — confirming most of the names floated in the past couple weeks and also adding a couple new ones to the mix.
Let’s meet the cast, shall we?
The press conference kicks off with the women:
Jennifer Grey, who will always be Baby (but never in a corner) for us
Audrina Patridge, coming down out of “The Hills” and onto the dance floor.
Florence Henderson, aka Carol Brady.
Margaret Cho, outspoken comedian and right-hand woman to the “Drop Dead Diva.”
Brandy Norwood, Grammy winner and sometime reality star.
Bristol Palin, mother.
After two commercial breaks and two more “Bachelor Pad” segments, we get to the men. They are:
David Hasselhoff, “Knight Rider” and “Baywatch” star, pop singer, cheeseburger aficionado. Can he best his former co-star Pam Anderson’s performance from the spring edition?
Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino, known for having abs.
Rick Fox, who has three NBA championship rings and five episodes of “One Tree Hill” to his credit.
Michael Bolton, best-selling adult-contemporary singer/easy punchline.
Kyle Massey, the star of Disney Channel’s “Corey in the House.”
Kurt Warner, recently retired (sorry, Arizona Cards fans) NFL quarterback and former Super Bowl MVP.
There you have it, folks. What do you think of the new cast? Will you be watching on Sept. 20?
