Along with Nick Carter, Hollywood Life is reporting Alexa PenaVega is joining the new cast of Dancing With The Stars Season 21. If true, what do you think?
Nick and Alex will be on the show next season, a source told HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY. So exciting! They will be great additions to the cast and will definitely spice up the dance floors with their moves.
Nick is no stranger to dancing. After all, he’s one-fifth of one of the great boy bands of all time — the Backstreet Boys! But this time he’ll be dancing solo. Nick is currently filming Syfy’s new TV movie, Dead 7, alongside his bandmates Howie Dorough and A.J. McLean.
Alexa is best known for her role as Carmen Cortez in the Spy Kids movies. She has been recurring on the hit ABC show Nashville as Kiley Brenner. She also had a role on The CW’s The Tomorrow People in 2014. She married Big Time Rush star Carlos Pena, Jr. in 2014.
ETA: E Online is also reporting on Alexa and Nick now too. They also report Demi Moore, Jodie Sweetin, Caitlyn Jenner, and Rick Schroeder all said no. More below and at the link.
Moore was a regular presence in the ballroom during season 20 asRumer Willis, her oldest daughter withBruce Willis, competed, going onto win the mirrorball trophy with partner Val Chmerkovskiy.
It would have been an epic follow-up, of course, to have Demi on board (no question the 52-year-old could still rock the glitter and spandex!), but we are told it’s definitely not happening—at least, not this time around.
So who else is in for the new season? Well, according to sources connected to the show, Nick Carter and Alexa Vega are in talks, but haven’t yet signed contracts.
E! News also has learned that Jodie Sweetin also was offered a DWTS gig and very much wanted to do the show, but had to back out because of her new Netflix series Fuller House, which is currently in production. So…there’s always next year? And maybe she can bring Uncle Jesse along?
Caitlyn Jenner and Rick Schroeder also were approached by DWTS, but turned it down. Schroeder is instead starring in NBC’s Coat of Colors, the movie based on Dolly Parton’s life–he’ll play her father. And Jenner, of course, is currently starring in E!’s I Am Cait on Sunday nights.
