Dancing with the Stars' Season 24 cast is filling out, with reality TV veteran Charo and NFL player Rashad Jennings reportedly being the new additions.

Charo -- whose full real name is actually Maria del Rosario Mercedes Pilar Martinez Molina Baeza -- and Jennings will be part of the cast of Dancing with the Stars when the new season premieres March 20 on ABC, E! News reported.

Charo is a 65-year-old Spanish-American actress, comedian and flamenco guitarist. She has appeared on Celebrity Wife Swap, Hell's Kitchen, The Surreal Life, RuPaul's Drag Race, Jane the Virgin, Fantasy Island and Chico and the Man.

Dancing with the Stars fans may also recall Charo being a guest on the ABC reality dancing competition in April 2010.

Jennings, currently a 31-year-old free agent, played for the New York Giants as a running back the last two NFL seasons.

Jennings was originally drafted by the Jacksonville Jaguars in the seventh round of the 2009 NFL Draft. The 6'1" athlete also previously played for the Oakland Raiders.

Maybe Jennings will follow in the footsteps of Emmitt Smith, an NFL running back who won Dancing with the Stars' third season with pro partner Cheryl Burke.

Professional football players tend to do very well in the dancing competition, especially when taking a look back at Hines Ward's success on Season 12 and Donald Driver's Season 14 victory.

As previously revealed, Glee star Heather Morris, The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Erika Girardi, The Bachelor star Nick Viall, Fifth Harmony member Normani Kordei, Olympic gymnast Simone Biles, pro wrestler Mr. T, and iconic figure skater Nancy Kerrigan have also reportedly joined the Season 24 cast of Dancing with the Stars.

Although the official cast lineup won't be revealed until Wednesday, March 1 on Good Morning America, fan-favorite pro dancers Maksim Chmerkovskiy and his fiancee Peta Murgatroyd recently confirmed their return to the show after welcoming their first child together, son Shai Aleksander, in early January.

According to a People source, pro Sharna Burgess will also be back, as well as Witney Carson and Val Chmerkovskiy.

Jenna Johnson, who served as a pro partner for the first time on Season 23, reportedly will not be competing on the next edition of Dancing with the Stars, nor will six-time mirrorball trophy champion Derek Hough, who signed on to judge Jennifer Lopez's upcoming reality show World of Dance.
