An Oscar winner, an Olympic gold medalist and an original host of "The Man Show" are among the new crop of celebrities who will fox-trot for your votes on "Dancing with the Stars."
The show, which returns for its sixth edition Monday, March 17, revealed its new cast during the finale of ABC's "Dance War: Bruno vs. Carrie Ann" on Monday (Feb. 18). Past contestants Kenny Mayne (in full pancake makeup), Jerry Rice and Lisa Rinna revived "Dancing's" ongoing "DanceCenter" bit to announce the names of the 12 competitors.
Among those hoofing for the cheesiest trophy on television will be actress Marlee Matlin, who won an Oscar for the 1986 film "Children of a Lesser God" and also has a handful of Emmy nominations to her credit. Kristi Yamaguchi, the 1992 Olympic figure skating gold medalist, will be competing too, as will radio host and former "Man Show" ringleader Adam Carolla, Tony winner Marissa Jaret Winokur and actor and bon vivant Steve Guttenberg.
