'Cheers' Cliff to Don Dancing Shoes

'Dancing With the Stars' added a new name to the roster of has-beens and wanna-be's, in the form of 'Cheers' alum John Ratzenberger. The erstwhile Cliff Clavin takes the place of Big Pussy Vincent Pastore, who dropped out of the hit show, after he realized there was actual physical work involved.

Ratzenberger was an original choice of the producers to participate in the show, but was unable to commit previously due to scheduling conflicts. Now he only has three weeks to prepare before the show's March 19th premiere.

The current cast is made up of Heather Mills, Joey Fatone, Ian Ziering, Apolo Anton Ohno, Shandi Finnessey, Leeza Gibbons, Clyde Drexler, Billy Ray Cyrus, Laila Ali and Paulina Porizkova.
