Dancing With the Stars 6: Cast Named



Actress-model Shannon Elizabeth and ”Police Academy” legend Steve Guttenberg are among the celebrities set to fight out the jiggling way, on the sixth season of ”Dancing With the Stars.”

Among other people who were named today by ABC are Marlee Matlin, who won the Academy Award for Best Actress for “Children of a Lesser God” and surely defies her being deaf to take on bigger tasks, Adam Corolla, comedian and radio host and Monica Seles, former tennis champion.

Well… Jason is a good choice but it would have been interesting to see Jennifer Coolidge there… shaking her big boobs to the beats of the dance floor!
