According to Entertainment Tonight, US Olympian Simone Biles and WWE Hall of Famer Mr. T will be competing on next seasons’ Dancing With The Stars.
Mr. T., whose real name is Lawrence Tureaud, has kept a low profile in recent years, with both his last acting credit and his last WWE appearance being in 2014, but the show is extremely happy to have him.
“Production has been trying to get Mr. T to do the show for years!” a source close to the show’s production tells ET.. “He will be a great contestant this season.”
As for Simone Biles she had shown interest in participating last season but was unable due to her busy schedule.
“I would love to [join DWTS], but the fall season won’t work because [of] the tour,” had said the 19-year-old gymnast. “If I could do the spring season, I would love to do that!”
“I think [I’d like to dance with] Sasha [Farber],” she revealed. “I think it would be cool to be with Sasha.”
The rest of the cast will be revealed on Good Morning America March 1st and the season premieres on March 20th.
