The new season of "Dancing with the Stars" contestants has been announced. And it includes familiar faces from the worlds of modeling, entertainment and sports such as former Dallas Cowboy Michael Irvin, reality star Kelly Osbourne, singer Macy Gray and supermodel Kathy Ireland.

Bu the most interesting pick is from the political arena. No, not Barack Obama. Not yet, anyway.

It's former House of Representatives Majority Leader Tom DeLay. DeLay is reviled by many Democrats -- who will be watching to see him misstep -- and beloved by more Republicans -- who will cheer him on.

Apparently, he loves dancing and is a big fan of the show. Who knew?

The professional dancer-celebrity pairings will be announced on Aug. 24.

But here's the complete celeb cast for Season Nine
