Former MAGNUM, P.I. star TOM SELLECK is set to show off his fancy footwork in
the next series of U.S. show DANCING WITH THE STARS.
The 63-year-old has been talked into slipping on his dancing shoes by former
Three Men and a Baby co-star Steve Guttenberg, who strutted his stuff in the
last season of the reality show.
A source tells the National Enquirer, “Executives wanted an older hunk to
bring in the baby boomer audience. Tom is incredibly popular with women 40
through 65, and producers were ecstatic when, at Steve’s urging, he expressed
interest in competing on the show.”
Selleck is expected to join other contestants including singer Toni Braxton
and former ‘N Sync star Lance Bass.
The official cast will be revealed on 25 August (08) and the new season of
the dance competition will premiere in America on 22 September (08).
