The latest chapter in Sean Spicer's varied personal-gig economy requires literal dancing rather than the metaphorical dancing of his most notable post. As USA Today reports, the former White House press secretary will appear on Season 28 of ABC's Dancing With the Stars—yes, that's 28 seasons since 2005, when we were young. "We've been off the air for a year, (so) we wanted to make it feel like a big annual event," says executive producer Andrew Llinares, who calls it "one of the best casts we've had in years," with "something for everyone."

Joining Spicer are the likes of supermodel Christie Brinkley, still apparently single Bachelorette Hannah Brown, Dawson's Creek paddler James Van Der Beek, basketballer and Kardashian alum Lamar Odom, "Meredith from The Office" Kate Flannery, and former Baltimore Raven and noted murder trial alum Ray Lewis. The footwork starts Sept. 16. Click here to see who else will be competing. (More Sean Spicer stories.)
