The cast has been revealed and there are lots of great choices. We've got Winnie from the Wonder Years, DJ Tanner from Full House, Sean Avery, Drew Carey, Lando Calrissian and many more.

I haven't seen her dance but I am anxious to watch Amy Purdy dance. I don't think there is anything that can hold her back and we will be surprised at what she can do on the dance floor.

The Stars (from the Good Morning American page)

Candace Cameron Bure

The actress, who broke out as a child star as D.J. Tanner on the hit '90s series "Full House," is also a New York Times best-selling author and mom of three.

Danica McKellar

Best known as Winnie Cooper on "The Wonder Years," the actress turned-mathematician and best-selling author for her line of "Math Doesn't Suck" books, brings her brains and acting chops to the ballroom.

Diana Nyad

The swimming legend, who became the first person to complete a historic 110-mile swim from Cuba to Key West in September 2013 on her fifth attempt, brings her determination and fearlessness to the competition.

NeNe Leakes

The breakout "Real Housewives of Atlanta" reality queen-turned sitcom actress brings her bold personality to the ballroom.

Cody Simpson

The 17-year-old Australian pop singer, who has amassed more than 12 million combined Twitter and Facebook followers and nearly 200 million YouTube views while on tour, and will now take to the "Dancing" stage.

Drew Carey

The stand-up comedian and actor, known for long-running shows, "The Drew Carey Show" and "Whose Line Is It Anyway?" went on to host "The Price Is Right," and brings his humor to the ballroom this season.

Meryl Davis

Olympic ice dancer Meryl Davis brings her gold-medal winning skating skills to the dance floor. Davis, 27, has been skating with partner Charlie White, 26, since 1997. While they won't be paired together on the show, the breakout Sochi stars will be fierce competition.

Charlie White

The Sochi star and second-half of the American ice dancing duo will trade skates his skates for dancing shoes this season.

Amy Purdy

Double-amputee snowboarding champ Amy Purdy lost both of her legs at 19 to meningitis, and went on to become a world champion in adaptive snowboarding and a motivational speaker. She is the first Paralympian to compete in the show's history.

Sean Avery

Former NHL star Sean Avery is the first hockey player in "DWTS" history. Avery played left wing for the Detroit Red Wings, Los Angeles Kings, Dallas Stars, and the New York Rangers, and was known as his team's "enforcer" and for his unpredictable on-ice antics.

Billy Dee Williams

Dubbed the "black Clark Gable" for roles in "Lady Sings the Blues," opposite Diana Ross, and 1975's "Mahogany," the iconic actor has played numerous characters during his storied career, including scoundrel Lando Calrissian in the "Star Wars" trilogy.

James Maslow

The Nickelodeon star and "Big Time Rush" singer has headlined sold-out tours across the globe and may be a triple threat.

My money is on one of the ice dancers...

I have a whole different level of respect for the dancers now that MH and I are in dance class. Its' not nearly as easy to coordinate your steps and move with each other.

I'm still trying to get my polka turn down without throwing in an extra step

Love this cast!! And Drew Carey...yay!! Candace Cameron doesn't look anything like she used to...I didn't even recognize her.

MovingUpward posted 3/4/2014 08:17 AM

Maybe next fall you can be a star on there, DS.

Deeply Scared posted 3/4/2014 08:23 AM

Oh sure!

Deeply Scared posted 3/4/2014 08:23 AM

I think you're far more qualified

Lucky2HaveMe posted 3/4/2014 08:28 AM

Don't you love dance class!?! We are working on the cha-cha and the 3 step swing in our class now. It's fun and a date night for us every Friday

ajsmom posted 3/4/2014 08:43 AM

LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the cast!

Bring it on, Amy!!!

Two things, however:

A. We need MH to attach the Mirror Ball avatar to this thread.

B. Let's just hand over the trophy now to one of the OLYMPIC CHAMPION ICE DANCERS!

ETA: I think Drew is going to surprise a lot of people.

Lucky...we are LOVING our dance classes and apparently we're pretty good too. Our instructor is very impressed with how quickly we caught on...minus that polka turn thing I'm having an issue with


I think you're right. I bet Drew is going to be pretty light on his feet

I'll ask MH to do his fancy mirror ball on this thread when he has a moment

Lola2kids posted 3/4/2014 10:58 AM

Okay, an Olympic speed skater or singles ladies skater is one thing but ICE DANCERS!!!

It's called Ice DANCING for a reason. They already have the hold and the footwork plus lifts!!!

Don't like that at all.
How much of an advantage do they have over a double amputee?

And Meryl is paired with Maks!!

And Meryl is paired with Maks!!


We have our winners, folks!

ajsmom posted 3/4/2014 11:21 AM

Amy is with Derek - he is an amazing tutor. As you may know, he helped Meryl and Charlie win the Gold Medal.

I'm not going to count Amy out just yet!

Lola2kids posted 3/4/2014 13:38 PM

I guess I have to admit that I'm smarting from Meryl and Charlie's gold medal.
My favs are Tessa Virtue and Scott Moir.
I am Canadian after all.

Lola2kids posted 3/4/2014 13:39 PM

My girls will love Cody Simpson and James Maslow.
I bet they don't even know James' real name but they do love Big Time Rush.
There are your tween heart-throbs for the season people.

Whalers11 posted 3/5/2014 06:03 AM

I will watch until Sean Avery gets kicked off.

kernel posted 3/5/2014 06:58 AM

I agree with Lola - ice dancers should not be allowed to compete. It isn't fair to the others. Ah well, they probably all get a nice paycheck.

It's tonight!
