Dancing with the Stars 2015 will have its premiere date of Season 20 on Monday, March 16 at 8p.m. ET/PT on ABC. As per usual, the rumors of the cast begin to fly like crazy in February, and this is what rumors we know for Dancing with the Stars 2015 as far as the dancers are concerned.
According to heavy.com, one of the rumored dancers could be Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. For those unfamiliar with the man, he is the son of the New York State Senator and U.S. Attorney General Robert Francis "Bobby" Kennedy, and a Kennedy on the dance card would be a definite first for the show. Robert F. Kennedy Jr. is an environmental activist, author, and radio host, currently co-hosting Ring of Fire.
Another wild card on the Dancing with the Stars deck that heavy.com predicts could be Rob Gronkowski, a tight end of the New England Patroits. Gronkowski recently appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live and stated: "They've been trying to get me to go on Dancing with the Stars for a while. I've been hurt a couple off-seasons but this off-season I'm healthy and maybe that might be a choice to make".
We have reported that Russell Wilson might show up on Dancing with the Stars if he won the Super Bowl, but this just didn't happen. Considering that the Patriots did win, and Rob Gronkowski had a touchdown in the second quarter, it seems like that could be a possible substitute, assuming that the people who choose the stars of Dancing with the Stars think that way.
This leads to the question of who else might be competing in Dancing With the Stars Season 20. According to Wet Paint, the Dancing with the Stars showrunner Rob Wade has stated that he was a cast the "pops", so don't be surprised if you see some very big names in Season 20.
One of them could be Roseanne Barr, who tweeted that she wanted to be on Dancing with the Stars, which would imply that she was asked. The biggest surprise could be Jack Nicholson, who actually called back and said that he loves the show, but "he'll think about it". It would be quite something he Jack were to appear on the show, and the 77-year-old star is slated to appear on Saturday Night Live's 40th anniversary special this week on NBC.
Some possibilities with teen heartthrob Ross Lynch as well as the current bachelor of ABC's sister show to Dancing with the Stars, The Bachelor.
Dancing with the Stars is set to have its premiere Season 20 episode on Monday, March 16 at 8p.m. ET/PT on ABC. Currently, the stars of Dancing with the Stars (the dancers, and not the celebrities) are involved in a tour known as DWTS Live, which will conclude on February 15th. Joining the dancers is the winner for Season 19, Alfonso Ribeiro. Those who really want to see who the official cast will be should tune into Good Morning America on February 24, 2014, as this is when the cast of Dancing with the Stars we'll be made official. Hopefully, a lot of the rumored cast is going to be fact.
