Dancing With The Stars Season 18 Cast Revealed (VIDEO)

In case you missed the news this morning the Dancing With the Stars Season 18 cast has been revealed. The new cast runs the usual gamut from athletes to reality stars. Here's the rundown on who fits into what category.

The athletes. These season is overflowing with athletes. You have Olympic ice dancing champs Meryl Davis and Charlie White (paired with Maks and Sharna, respectively), NHL hottie Sean Avery (with Karina), paralympian Amy Purdy (with Derek), and world record long-distance swimmer Diana Nyad (with new pro Henry Byalikov) who, at 64, also fits into the "golden oldies" category.

The nostalgia factor. Danica McKellar (with Val) is known to many as Winnie Cooper from The Wonder Years. Candace Cameron Bure (with Mark) was D.J. Tanner on Full House while 76-year-old Billy Dee Billy Dee Williams (with Emma Slater) is none other than Lando Calrissian from Star Wars.

Bringing the funny. We can probably expect NeNe Leakes (with Tony) and Drew Carey (with Cheryl) to add the funny factor.

The eye candy. James Maslow (with Peta) and Cody Simpson (with new pro Witney Carson) are the eye candy this season — especially for their legions of teen fans.
