Simone Biles, Mr. T to Compete on ‘Dancing With the Stars’ Season 24

 

Olympic gymnast Simone Biles and actor Mr. T will be among the celebs competing for the Mirrorball trophy on the upcoming 24th season of “Dancing With the Stars,” ABC confirmed to ET.

“Production has been trying to get Mr. T to do the show for years!” a source close to production tells the outlet. “He will be a great contestant this season.”

The 64-year-old mohawked actor, whose real name is Laurence Tureaud, last appeared on TV in 2014 in the movie, “WrestleMania XXX.”

Following the Rio Olympics in August, Biles was rumored to be among the contestants competing for Season 23 last fall, but her publicity schedule prevented her from joining the show.

“With the tour going on, the fall will be very, very hard to attend, so I can’t do that one. I’m hoping for the spring one if they would allow me to do that — that would be awesome,” Biles said at the time.

The new season of “DWTS” premieres March 20 on ABC.

A man told police that his dog was responsible for shooting his girlfriend while she was sleeping on Tuesday night in Florida. Jacksonville police responded around 11:25 p.m. to the reported shooting at a home in the 2200 block of Patou Drive. Brian Murphy told officers that he let his dog, Diesel, outside after the animal woke him up Tuesday night. When they returned to the bedroom, the room was completely dark. Murphy told police that Diesel walked in before him, and that he then saw a flash and heard a bang. Murphy’s girlfriend, Summer Miracle, had been shot in her sleep. Murphy claimed that “Diesel jumped up on the nightstand, where (Murphy’s) gun was sitting, and it went off, shooting Summer in the right leg,” according to police. Miracle told authorities she was asleep when the bullet struck her and that she wasn’t sure how she was shot. She was taken to the hospital with injuries that did not appear to be life-threatening.
