The new cast of "Dancing With the Stars" was revealed on Wednesday, and, as usual, there's one name that is causing more buzz than the rest. Sean Spicer, one of the most memorable White House press secretaries in recent history, is getting ready to hit the ballroom.
Spicer served as President Trump's press secretary for six months in 2017. He became infamous for his temperament in dealing with certain members of the press (remember this exchange with April Ryan?), and actress Melissa McCarthy earned an Emmy nomination for her hysterical portrayal of him on "Saturday Night Alive."
Spicer will join the most recent Bachelorette, Hannah Brown, "Dawson's Creek" star James Van der Beek, NBA star Lamar Odom, "Queer Eye" star Karamo Brown, supermodel Christie Brinkley, country singer and "American Idol" alum Lauren Alaina, former Fifth Harmony member Ally Brooke, former NFL star Ray Lewis, actress Kate Flannery, comedian Kel Mitchell, half of Nickeolodeon's iconic duo Kenan and Kel, and The Supremes music legend Mary Wilson.
We asked Spicer at his book launch for The Briefing last year if he planned to compete, and it was a resounding, humbling "no."
What made you change your mind, Sean??
The new season of "Dancing with the Stars" airs Sept. 16 on ABC.
