'Dancing With the Stars'

Cast Revealed!

1/22/2007 2:12 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

TMZ has exclusively learned the names of several celebs set to do the cha cha cha on the new season of "Dancing With the Stars."

Dancing With the Stars
Country crooner Billy Ray Cyrus (that's "Hannah Montana's" dad for you tweeners), former "90210" star Ian Ziering and Muhammad Ali's daughter Laila Ali will join former *NSYNC member Joey Fatone in trying to wrestle Emmitt Smith's Season 3 crown.

Despite earlier reports, one star who will not be shaking her royal groove thang is the original Fergie, Sarah Ferguson, Duchess of York. Fergie's fellow countrywomen, Sharon and Kelly Osbourne, were set to join the cast but have since backed out.

A rep for "Dancing" had no comment, saying "We can't confirm any castings at this point."

"Dancing With the Stars"
premieres March 19.

I think they need to change the name of the show. When was Ian Ziering ever considered a star?

They like to get people from the late '80s and early '90s that haven't gotten the big TV series since their long running shows ended. Or music careers that have since faded. A few of them had their own shows that lasted only one season or a few shows. I can't wait to see Joey Fatone compete on Dancing with the Stars! I think he'll be fun doing ballroom dancing, providing humor and such. And maybe Billy Ray Cyrus is trying to one up on his currently successful daughter, Miley by dancing on this show. This show might boost his current album's sales, even all his older albums such as that 1992 megahit Some Gave All. TV does help. He's had far better songs than that ultracatchy Achy Breaky Heart. Ian Ziering, I don't know--he'll be eliminated after the first week because he seems uninteresting now after 90210.

Dancing With The Stars has never had BIG stars so whats the problem? I agree Joey Fatone should be fun. He has a great sense of humor. Can't wait for the new season to begin.

i dont know why alot of you are complaining about the cast for this season you already know that they have never had really big stars on the show, the whole point of the show is to try and bring up the carrers of some of these out of work actors

I am so upset about Heather Mills! I am a Beatle Fan, and think she has already taken everything from Paul--why exploit him anymore? How would anyone feel after a divorce, having your ex become a celebrity? Wrong, wrong, wrong...and she cannot do what everyone else does, it's not fair.

Why all the negativity? If you don;t care to watch "Dancing With the Stars", you have the biggest option available...............your remote control!!!! Just change the channel.
Who cares if they pick starts fro m the 80's and 90's? For all I care they can pick from the 50's 60's and 70's too.
What I would like to see is all you naysayers try to dance these dances. If you think they are easy, you are SO VERY WRONG. Maybe you would be better served instead of shooting off your mouths, put your money on lessons and see how well you do in the time allotted.
Didn;t your Parents ever tell and/or teach you....If you have nothing nice to say, say nothing at all????

Give these people a break. They deserve more than the bashing you are spewing.

Congrats to LeeAnn

If you want to watch then do so, but are all the comments necessary. I just enjoy see these guys get out there and strut their stuff doing these dances in less time then most of us can.

Good luck to everyone that has chosen to participate.

I can't wait to see Ian. I love this show. They take people that the public knows because they either had a super big tv show or they were big in music or sports. They are always people that you know. They are not super big celebrities that think they are above the everyday person. The current big celebrites think they are to good to be on. I am excited about this upcoming season. I mean, who ever heard of that Kelly Monaco before she did this show. I think it is going to be GREAT!!!
