And announced his casting on what feels like the thousandth season of Dancing With the Stars. Damn you ABC. You know I can’t look away from train wreck on TV.

Garey Busey rode in on a horse for his appearance on Jimmy Kimmel. Why a horse? Who knows, but it’s so absurd, who can look away? It seems he doesn’t need any help in the costume department.

Yep America. Gary Busey will be shaking his ass on your TV this fall. Thank God basic cable hasn’t started transmitting in 4K. Talk therapy just wouldn’t be enough after being subjected to this.

Full Dancing With the Stars Cast

Like every season, you have your ‘oh, yeah, that person’ cast members, the ‘d-list celebrity dancers’ and the ‘work your magic Google, my mind just went full Gary Busey’ castings.

It’s actually the reality show’s 21st season, and the cast of characters is interesting…

My favorite? Alex Skarlatos. Who is he? The National Guard specialist that went full Harrison Ford / Liam Neeson on the French train last month. Get off my train. Hey, soak in that fame brother.

Who else do we have? Paula Deen. Prop bets on butter being incorporated into one of the dances? Deen should add some controversy to the show. She is greasing the pan for her emergence back on the public stage after admitting using a racial epithet in 2013.


Here’s the full cast list along with their pro partners:

Alexa PenaVega and Mark Ballas; Deen and Louis van Amstel; actress and wildlife enthusiast Bindi Irwin and Derek Hough; singing star Chaka Khan and Keo Motsepe; Real Housewives star Kim Zolciak Biermann and Tony Dovolani; and singer and TV personality Tamar Braxton and Valentin Chmerkovskiy.

Alex Skarlatos and Lindsay Arnold; Carlos PenaVega and Witney Carson; actor Gary Busey and Anna Trebunskaya; singer-songwriter Andy Grammer and Allison Holker; Backstreet Boy Nick Carter and Sharna Burgess; social-media star Hayes Grier and Emma Slater; and Triple Crown-winning jockey Victor Espinoza and Karina Smirnoff.

In the end, we have Gary Busey on a horse fresh from a mariachi performance. What more could you possibly want?

For those of you that DVR these shows, set it for September 14 at 8 pm ET.
