If you like a weird cast for "Dancing with the Stars" this eighth season should be everything you ever wanted. The lineup on the hit ABC show will include "Jackass" star Steve O, a gymnast, a computer magnate, and ex-felon and rapper Lil Kim.
"We've gone for some unpredictable people," says executive producer Conrad Green. "Once you have someone with one leg (Heather Mills), a deaf person (Marlee Matlin) and an 82-year-old (Cloris Leachman), it's hard to push the boundaries. An air of wildness doesn't hurt."
Aside from Lil Kim, who was convicted on federal perjury charges, the cast for the new season includes a couple of stars who aren't strangers to a jail cell: NFL footballer Lawrence Taylor and Steve-O both have had cocaine charges brought against them.
The rest of the line-up includes: singer Belinda Carlisle, actor and comedian David Alan Grier, singer Jewel and her husband rodeo star Ty Murray, Olympic gymnast Shawn Johnson, actor Gilles Marini, Access Hollywood host Nancy O'Dell, actress Denise Richards, singer Chuck Wicks and Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak.
The new season kicks off with a two-hour premiere Monday, March 9 at 8 p.m. EST.
