David HasselhoffFirst, it was the invasion of the reality stars, with rumors swirling around Audrina Patridge, Mike "The Situation" Sorrentino and Brandy Norwood joining 'Dancing With the Stars' season 11. Now, it's the onslaught of middle-aged men and sitcom stars.

David Hasselhoff, singer Michael Bolton and Ryan O'Neal are the latest stars rumored to be getting their dance on this season. On the sitcom front, we have Kirstie Alley, Florence Henderson and Jennifer Grey.

'Baywatch' star Hasselhoff may be following in his co-star Pamela Anderson's footsteps and go after the mirrorball trophy this season. According to Access Hollywood, the Hoff is ready for his bedazzled closeup.

RadarOnline reports that Bolton may use 'DWTS' as a platform for a major comeback. It's certainly helped other stars regain a place in the spotlight. 'Dancing With the Stars' co-host Brooke Burke even mentioned Bolton as a possible dancer on 'Lopez Tonight.'

"Michael's management company had been in talks with the show for over a month," a source told RadarOnline. "They're all very excited about it, especially Michael."

And what about O'Neal? In early August, Extra reported O'Neal was in talks to join the dance competition. Almost a month later, E! Online is reporting he's still in negotiations.

Kirstie AlleyAccording to Star Magazine, 'Brady Bunch' star Henderson and 'Dirty Dancing' veteran Jennifer Grey will also be part of season 11. Grey and Henderson have been rumored before, but this season might actually see them take the stage.

'Cheers' star Kirstie Alley is also reportedly set to do the tango this year. In Touch Weekly is reporting she'll dance with Maksim Chmerkovskiy.

Yesterday we reported that Brandy Norwood, Audrina Patridge and The Situation have/are close to signing with the show. We didn't mention your favorite star? Check out these possible contestants:

'Real Housewives of New Jersey' star Teresa Giudice took to Twitter to start rumors about her involvement. No other buzz since then.

Jon Gosselin has said he wants to return to TV and knows how to dance. Could 'DWTS' be in his future? Probably not, but a man can dream, right?

Landon Donovan, the soccer hero from the World Cup, has been rumored for months. He's pretty much a lock.

Olympian Johnny Weir has also been rumored since last season. He wants in, but does the show?

Troy Aikman made a brief news spectacle by saying he'd be on the show, then saying that was a joke. Did he botch his chances?

Tell us: Who do you want to see on 'Dancing With the Stars'?

Can't wait to see Michael Bolton dance, He is one very sexy man. If he can dance half as good as he sings he will win the trophy.

Please! I would like to see someone other than Brooke Burke co-host the show. She is a great gal, but had no "chemistry" with Tom.

I have to agree with most of the comments! The show is DWTS not reality stars. I would like to see Valerie Bertinalli, Scott Baio,Shania Twain,Reba Mcintire,John Travolta & Olivia Newton John they would be better than The Hoff or Kirstie Alley.Get some daytime stars! Stay away from the wanna be stars!If the names that are being rumored to appear are for real I will not be watching because none of them are that interesting to me.

Why not Dr. Oz. He has a great personality and he is always trying to dance on his show. It would be interesting to see him try .

I would like to see someone that can actually stand up without help from the Pro. I'm not a young person badmouthing my elders. I'm 73, and enjoy seeing dancers who can be entertaining. With the line up that I have heard so far... I won't be watching this year !!!

Sounds like a good line-up. Definitely Kristy and Hasselhoff. DWTS needs to keep us viewers glued to the TV screen with well-known and controversial celebrities (let get the "Situation" in there too).
