'Dancing With The Stars' Season 13 Cast Revealed

Posted: Updated:

Summoning the who's who of the backwaters of cable television, the "Dancing With The Stars" season 13 cast has officially been announced.

Leading the pack is David Arquette, who was linked with the show a few weeks back. He just got back from a trip to Africa to help raise awareness of malaria prevention, and perhaps his good karma will get him closer to the mirror ball trophy. Last season, Hines Ward took home the top prize; the season before that, Jennifer Grey was the winner.

Perhaps the most intriguing entrant is Elisabetta Canalis, the Italian model and ex-girlfriend of George Clooney. And by far most hilariously, Nancy Grace, the bombastic Headline News host, will also be competing for a shot at dance floor immortality.

Also, there will be a bit of a family rivalry, as Ron Artest, teammate of Khloe Kardashian's husband Lamar Odom, is squaring off against Rob Kardashian, her brother.

Here's the full list; in the comments, tell us what you think. The season starts September 19th.

Ricki Lake
Ron Artest
Kristin Cavallari
Chynna Phillips
David Arquette
Carson Kressley
Nancy Grace
J.R. Martinez
Hope Solo
Rob Kardashian
Elisabetta Canalis
Chaz Bono

CORRECTION: An earlier version of this story stated that Lamar Odom would be dancing on the show. In fact it is Ron Artest, Odom's teammate, who will be appearing on the show. Also, an early version misstated that Jennifer Gray won last season's competition; Gray won the previous season.
