Producers are looking for more "high profile" celebrities to compete on the upcoming thirteenth season of ABC's Dancing with the Stars, which premieres on Monday, September 19 at 8PM ET/PT, TMZ reported Monday.
According to TMZ, the network has been trying to entice big name-celebrities to appear on the show by offering full control over their rehearsal schedules with no minimum practice requirements and insisting they could choose their own music and costume designs.
Whether producers have landed commitments from any of the stars they have approached is unclear, but the identities of several celebrities who may participate inDancing with the Stars' next season have recently surfaced.
Last week, Us WeeklyreportedJersey Shore star Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi and Rob Kardashian, the brother of Keeping Up with the Kardashians stars Kim, Khloe and Kourtney Kardashian, are in talks to become members of the next Dancing with the Stars cast.
Boxer Mike Tyson "is being considered" as one of the show's upcoming contestants although his representative suggested the claims were "not true," while singer Christina Milian "is a possibility," as well, according to Us.
In addition, Dina Lohan, the mother of troubled actress Lindsay Lohan, was overheard earlier this month saying she is in discussions to be part of the cast while celebrating her daughter's birthday at a private home in Water Mill, NY, according toThe New York Post.
