It’s March, which means another season of Dancing With the Stars is right around the corner. The official cast won’t be announced until March 8, but the DWTS rumour mill has been churning out names like butter. Every year the cast seems to get more dismal, scrounging up people whom the last word you would associate them with is “star.”

But Season 22 (yes, you read that right) is actually filled with some pretty big names and not just a bunch of people cobbled together straight out of the DWTS casting handbook — at least if the reports are right. Here’s who we know:

JODIE SWEETIN

Actually, this one’s the only official one. Sweetin was on Good Morning America where she confirmed the news. The Fuller House star is following in her co-star Candace Cameron Bure‘s footsteps and the girl also revealed she’s dancing with Keo, which means for the first time he’s got some good luck and won’t be eliminated in the first couple of weeks. Yay!

GINGER ZEE

Speaking of GMA, its chief meteorologist will reportedly be dancing. She’s actually on maternity leave, giving birth to her son in December, but seems she’s going to balance broadcasting (she returns to the show on March 7), baby and ballroom.

He’s here! Adrian Benjamin. We are all doing great and inundated with love.

KIM FIELDS

She stars on Real Housewives of Atlanta but like Sweetin, she’s a blast from the past from her days on The Facts of Life and Living Single. We can’t wait to see Tootie’s moves.

NYLE DiMARCO

America’s Next Top Model‘s most recent winner will trade his stomping for dancing shoes. DiMarco will be the second-ever deaf contestant on the show, after Marlee Matlin competed in Season 6.

ANTONIO BROWN

Some savvy people with a lot of time on their hands happened to notice that the wide receiver for the Pittburgh Steelers recently began following the Twitter accounts of DWTS and professional dancer Sharna Burgess.

MISCHA BARTON

Welcome to the ballroom, Marissa Cooper! The former star of The O.C. looks to be making a small-screen comeback. Now if Ben McKenzie, Adam Brody and Rachel Bilson will be in the ballroom to show their former castmate some love, we would definitely cheers to that.
