Which Mean Girls Star Is Rumored to Be Joining Dancing With the Stars?
Get ready to note how sexy Aaron Samuels’ hair looks pushed back on your TV screens each week. Word on the street is that Mean Girls star Jonathan Bennett — aka the aforementioned hottie from the iconic film — is in negotiations to star on Dancing With the Stars Season 19!
According to TMZ sources, the 33-year-old has been tapped by producers for the comeback gig, joining stars like Pretty Little Liars’ Janel Parrish and Ducky Dynasty’s Sadie Robertson. And let’s be real — Jon is totally on to fill the nostalgia and hot guy roles, simultaneously. And boy are we feeling sentimental at just the thought of Lindsay Lohan’s ex on-screen love shimmying for our votes.
It’s been a while since Jonathan was in the limelight. The eyebrow-tastic hunk been hard at work doing indie flicks — and even working as an L.A. spin instructor! — but the last major mainstream role he snagged was 2005’s Cheaper by the Dozen 2. It’s about time we had him on a major studio or network gig!
Sure, it’ll be different than an acting role, but at least there will be time to gaze at Jon and reminisce about our formative years. Plus, it’s totally timely to have a Mean Girls cast member on DWTS, since this year was the teen flick’s 10-year anniversary (ahh!). Perhaps all this excitement may even get co-stars like Lizzy Caplan, Tina Fey, or Lindsay herself to come cheer him on in the audience? We can dream!
