Though the celebrity dancers have yet to be announced, here's a few we'd like to see strutting their stuff:

Kirstie Alley
Getting set for her own reality television series, to air on A&E, Alley would be able to document the competition and get in a bit of exercise to help with her weight loss battle.

Christopher Knight
No stranger to reality television, this former 'Brady Bunch' star still has the body and the attitude to get his groove on.

Jerry Ferrara
Known to most as Turtle on HBO's hit 'Entourage,' Ferrara's character has been suaved up a bit on the show. Wouldn't it be great to see him translate that onto the dance floor?

Landon Donovan
The fit, handsome 27-year-old forward for the Los Angeles Galaxy soccer team would draw in both female viewers and soccer fans alike.

Venus Williams
Tennis champ and big sister to Serena, Williams is no stranger to rivalry and has a sharp fashion sense as well.

Maria Canals Barrera
'George Lopez Show' graduate and current mother on the Disney Channel's 'Wizards of Waverly Place,' this Cuban powerhouse is not shy about showing off her dance skills.
