The cast, announced on "Good Morning America" Monday (Aug. 25), hewed pretty closely to several leaked lists of possible competitors for the show's seventh cycle. Among those vying for the disco-ball trophy are Grammy winner Toni Braxton, celebrity chef Rocco DiSpirito and Lance Bass, who will follow in the footsteps of his former bandmate Joey Fatone on the show.

The new season will also feature the show's youngest performer ever in " Hannah Montana" co-star Cody Linley, who's 18, and its oldest in Cloris Leachman, 82, who has an Oscar (for "The Last Picture Show") and a passel of Emmys (most recently for a guest spot on "Malcolm in the Middle" in 2006) on her resume.
