It will be a while before ABC officially announces the cast of its upcoming season of "Dancing With the Stars," but according to a new report, we already know two of the famous faces who will compete for the mirrorball trophy.
Entertainment Tonight is reporting that Olympic champion Simone Biles and '80s icon Mr. T will both be dancing their way across the "DWTS" stage for season 24, with a source confirming that the celebs are part of the new cast. According to ET's source, producers have "been trying to get Mr. T to do the show for years."
Biles has also apparently been high on "Dancing"'s list of potential contestants ever since she took home the gold in the all-around gymnastics competition at the 2016 summer Olympics in Rio. While a spot in season 23 didn't pan out for the athlete (who has expressed interest in participating in the show several times in the past), if this report is true, it looks like she'll finally get her chance to dance on TV during this spring season.
We'll have to wait for word from ABC before we know Biles and Mr. T are officially on board, but these potential additions to the "Dancing" team are certainly exciting. Stay tuned for the full cast announcement.
Season 24 of "Dancing With the Stars" debuts on ABC on March 20.
