Dancing With the Stars Cast Rumors: Lou Ferrigno, Dean McDermott

at . Comments

Dancing With the Stars is getting desperate.

Last month, the rumor was that the show had signed Ashley Hamilton for the cast. Try not to get too excited about that.

Now, a couple of other Z-list names are making the rounds.

First, Life & Style reports that former actor and bodybuilder Lou Ferrigno is set to boogie. The Incredible Hulk star, who was actually personally training Michael Jackson before he died, told the magazine:

"I had a good meeting with the producers for Dancing With the Stars, it was really positive, and they loved the idea of having me on the show. I've never done that type of dancing before, so I know that I'll have to train hard. I'm a glutton for punishment, so I'll give it my best shot."

Meanwhile, Marc Malkin of E! News says that Tori Spelling's husband (that's really all he's known for) Dean McDermott is in talks with producers.

"He wants to do it," an insider said. "He'd be really good at it, too."

The official Dancing with the Stars cast will be announced on August 17.
