This morning on ABC’s “Good Morning America,” the cast for Season 18 of celebrity dancing show “Dancing with the Stars” was announced.
Among them is former “General Hospital: Night Shift” star Billy Dee Williams (ex-Toussiant DuBois), perhaps most famous for his role as Lando Calrissian in the original “Star Wars” trilogy. Williams joins a long list of soap actors who have competed on “DWTS,” including previous winners Kelly Monaco (Sam Morgan, “General Hospital”) and J.R. Martinez (ex-Brot Monroe, “All My Children”). He will be paired with dancer Emma Slater, who competed last season to fourth place with comedian Bill Engvall.
The anticipation leading up to the announcement of the 65th Primetime Emmy awards has been building for weeks, and “Breaking Bad’s” Aaron Paul and “How I Met Your Mother’s” three-time Emmy winner Neil Patrick Harris (who’s also hosting the ceremony this year) finally made the official list public this morning.
