...we have the latest news: the cast members for Season Lucky 13 of Dancing With The Stars!

David Arquette - actor, producer, onetime pro wrestler (no shit!), Courteney Cox's ex-hubby
Ron Artest - small forward with the L.A. Lakers
Chaz Bono - born Chastity Bono; child of Sonny and Cher; transgender activist and spokesperson
Elisabetta Canalis - Italian actress
Kristin Cavallari - actress, "The Hills"
Nancy Grace - CNN Headline News hostess
Rob Kardashian - reality TV star; "It's not you I hate, Kardashian. I hate what I became...because of you."
Carson Kressley - the fashion expert from Queer Eye for the Straight Guy
Ricki Lake - actress and talk-show host
J.R. Martinez - actor, retired U.S. Army infantryman, veteran of Operation Iraqi Freedom
Chynna Phillips - actress, singer (Wilson Phillips)
Hope Solo - starting goalie for US women's national soccer team

Once again, no real "geek" angle, so I'll probably just be doing Quick Hits. But I now have much better equipment to do it with...to wit, a 42" LG TV with 120hz refresh, and HD digital cable with DVR.

Seeing as Nancy Grace is on the show, wouldn't it be awesome if they had Casey Anthony as well? [Wink]

On a (vaguely) related note: did you know that Firefly's Mal Reynolds and his 'wife' Saffron had a daughter?

Wait a minute. How'd they have a daughter if they never actually managed to consummate the marriage?

You merkins got the bowdlerised version of the series - you should try to get hold of the International Edition on DVD - that Mal/Saffron/Inara threesom scene was HOT! [evil]

Granted, there are other redheaded candidates (Whedon does like to cast redheads) - but if you want to tell the warrior-woman in the photo that her mother was a whore...

I'll be standing over here, at a safe distance.

You all fail at geekdom. I don't watch sports at all, yet I know who Hope Solo is because this picture made the rounds on most sites (and still shows up periodically).

And yes, I do find it a bit sad and pathetic that a photo of an attractive woman with an XBox controller got as much attention as that one did.

Not to mention that I suspect more than a few of you don't recognize who the girl dressed as a space cowboy is and why she's dressed that way.

They didn't take my suggestion to cast Linus Torvalds. [ohwell]

The pro pairings have now been announced, too. They are:

David Arquette: Kym Johnson (who helped Donny Osmond win a Cheesy Disco Ball Trophy)
Ron Artest: Peta Murgatroyd (one of the Troupe members aka "New Mutants" from last season)
Chaz Bono: Lacey Schwimmer (as I told Sabrina, they're treating him as the gender he presents, no more, no less)
Elisabetta Canalis: Valentin Chmerkovskiy (Maks' brother!)
Kristin Cavallari: Mark Ballas
Nancy Grace: Tristan MacManus (another Troupe member who moved up)
Rob Kardashian: Cheryl Burke (two-time winner, giving him a decent chance)
Carson Kressley: Anna Trebunskaya (this will be fun to watch)
Ricki Lake: Derek Hough (back this season, he's a 3-time winner, which gives HER a good chance)
J.R. Martinez: Karina Smirnoff (remember her? She was The Woz's partner [Beard of Peter Gabriel!] )
Chynna Phillips: Tony Dovolani
Hope Solo: Maksim Chmerkovskiy (The Bad Boy! This will ALSO be entertaining to watch)

Sabrina likes Ricki Lake the best out of this cast, and, indeed, it looks like she's got a pretty good position out of the gate. But we'll see how they battle it out in the Rectagon...

As a fan of Castle since Day One, I came here to point this out. [Big Grin]
