LOS ANGELES, Calif. -- Season 11 of “Dancing with the Stars” is about to take “Hoff,” a source tells Access Hollywood.
The source says that former “Baywatch” hunk David Hasselhoff is taking to the ballroom to compete on the upcoming season of the hit reality dancing competition show. David’s “Dancing” stint comes just one season after his pal – original “Baywatch” babe Pamela Anderson — made her own run at the mirrorball trophy.
The former “America’s Got Talent” judge, recently roasted on Comedy Central, will be competing against a host of diverse stars, including a former fellow judge of the Hoff’s from the NBC summer talent show.
The source also tells Access that international singing superstar – crooner Michael Bolton — will also be competing on the new season, which returns on September 20 at 8 PM on ABC.
Facing off against The Hoff and Bolton will be retired Arizona Cardinals quarterback (and well-known family man) Kurt Warner. Additionally, the source tells Access that the long-standing rumor that “Jersey Shore’s” ab-tastic Michael “The Situation” Sorrentino is indeed also part of the cast.
The GTL (gym, tan, laundry) enthusiast will compete against another fellow MTV reality star, “The Hills” beauty Audrina Patridge, according to the source (news previously reported by Zap2it).
Additionally, the source says that singer and former “America’s Got Talent” judge Brandy will also hit the ballroom.
When contacted by Access Hollywood, ABC said they do not comment on casting rumors.
The official cast will be announced next Monday night – August 30 – during ABC’s “Bachelor Pad.”
