Drew Carey one of 'Dancing with the Stars' new cast members revealed on Good Morning America

We know Cleveland rocks but we're about to find out whether Cleveland dances too.

Native son Drew Carey joins 11 other new cast members, including Billy Dee Williams, two child stars (Danica McKeller and Candace Cameron-Bure), reality Housewife NeNe Leakes and several athletes for the 18th season of "Dancing with the Stars."

Carey may be best known for his comedy, his popular Cleveland-set TV show and taking over for iconic "Price Is Right" host Bob Barker, but plenty have taken notice of how much weight he's lost.

That's part of the reason he's doing the show.

He told "Dancing" hosts Erin Andrews and Tom Bergeron he's wanted to do something like this since he started dropping the pounds.

Winter Olympic champions Charlie White and Meryl Davis skate into the show as competitors.

They aren't the other dancers with time on the ice. Former pro hockey player Sean Avery.

They're joined by snowboarder Amy Purdy, James Maslow, Cody Simpson and Diana Nyad.

The new season starts March 17.
