The world is filled (and perhaps crowded) with celebrities and only 13 have been selected for the DWTS 2009 cast. Rather than the grand, drum-roll announcement on Good Morning America, the names peppered the ABC primetime lineup (Extreme Makeover: Home Edition, Desperate Housewives, and Brothers & Sisters), though very likely not overshadowing the competing 2009 Grammy Awards.

The cast runs the gamut from actors to comedians to pro athletes to country singers and even a billionaire.

• Belinda Carlisle, 50, singer (former Go-Go frontwoman)
• Stephen “Steve-O” Glover, 34, reality-TV star|
• David Alan Grier, 53, comedian
• Shawn Johnson, 17, Olympic gymnast
• Jewel Kilcher, 34, singer, TV personality
• Lil’ Kim, 33, rapper
• Gilles Marini, 33, actor
• Ty Murray, 39, former rodeo cowboy
• Nancy O’Dell, 42, Access Hollywood anchor
• Denise Richards, 37, actress (formerly of Wild Things )
• Lawrence Taylor, 50, retired NFL player
• Chuck Wicks, 29, singer
• Steve Wozniak, 58, technology billionaire and co-founder of Apple Computers

“We’ve gone for some unpredictable people,” says executive producer Conrad Green. “Once you have someone with one leg (Heather Mills), a deaf person (Marlee Matlin) and an 82-year-old (Cloris Leachman), it’s hard to push the boundaries. An air of wildness doesn’t hurt.”

But now, dancers, all! DWTS eighth season premieres with a two-hour episode on Monday, March 9, 2009 at 8PM ET/PT.

Here are photos of the DWTS 2009 cast. More photos and video are below.

    Dancing with the Stars is such a fun classy show to watch. The comedian they had tonight he should have been taken off the minute he started speaking. He should come back apologizing to each and every one of the stars. He was out right RUDE and it was not even funny in the least.
