One of the Original Kings of Comedy and a 2012 Super Bowl champion are joining the hit ballroom competition.
Yesterday, EW revealed that Baltimore Ravens wide receiver Jacoby Jones was joining the cast. Today, the full list has been announced and comedian D.L. Hughley is counted amongst the new cast. Entering into its 16th season, Dancing With the Stars is repeating old trends by having a General Hospital alum, an Olympic skater and a football player on the show.
This was done before with the first winner of DWTS and General Hospital alum Kelly Monaco, retired Dallas Cowboys football player Emmitt Smith and Olympic speed skater Apollo Ono. They all went on to win DWTS in their respective seasons.
The other dancers that will be on Season 16 are: Country music singer, Wynonna Judd, restauranteur and author Lisa Vanderpump, comedian Andy Dick, pugilist Victor Ortiz, Disney’s Zendaya, gold medal olympic winning gymnast Aly Raisman, General Hospital alum Indigo Rademacher, country singer Kelly Pickler, and 1976 olympic figure skating champion Dorothy Hamill.
We’ve already seen Jacoby Jones’ moves, but do you think D.L. has the rhythm to go with the funny?
