Since its inception, sports stars have been natural choices for ABC's Dancing With the Stars reality show, and the cast of Season 12 is no different.

Pro wrestler Chris Jericho, former USC basketball player Romeo, boxing champion Sugar Ray Leonard, and Steelers wide receiver Hines Ward will all participate, the show's producers announced yesterday.

In addition, several other "almost" sports figures are on the next show: Former Sports Illustrated swimsuit model Petra Nemcova; Ralph Macchio, the star of a fairly famous sports movie, The Karate Kid; Kirstie Alley, who played the girlfriend of a fictitious Red Sox player on the sitcom "Cheers"; and Kendra Wilkinson, who is married is NFL journeyman Hank Baskett.
