Marlee Matlin Rumored for Next Dancing with the Stars

by at . Comments

According to Entertainment Weekly, ABC may have convinced Oscar-winning actress Marlee Matlin to appear on Dancing with the Stars this season.

Choosing the deaf actress would be a continuation of the show's quest to defy casting expectations and prejudices. For season 4, it lured the awful Heather Mills, who has a prosthetic leg, under the mirrored ball.
