Although the full cast list won't be revealed until the March 4 edition of "Good Morning America," Burtt confirmed that as previously rumored, actress Candace Cameron Bure will indeed be part of the celebrity lineup when "DWTS" premieres March 17 on ABC.
Burtt did not have information regarding Cameron Bure's professional dance partner, but the candidates for the job are returning show pros Maksim Chmerkovskiy, Derek Hough, Val Chmerkovskiy, Tony Dovolani, and Mark Ballas, and first-time coach Henry Byalikov, who was promoted from the "DWTS" troupe for season 18. Given that partnerships are often established based partly on height and Cameron Bure's small stature (5'2"), Ballas is the most likely choice.
Cameron Bure, 37, is best known for her role as eldest daughter D.J. Tanner on the long-running family series "Full House." In addition to being an actress and the younger sister of actor Kirk Cameron, she is a mom of three and an author. She most recently starred in the Hallmark Channel original Christmas movie "Let it Snow."
Other celebrities rumored to be in the hunt for the mirror ball trophy include "Real Housewives of Atlanta" star NeNe Leakes, Olympic gold medalists Meryl Davis and Charlie White, and former NHL player Sean Avery, among others.
"Dancing with the Stars" 2014 premieres March 17 on ABC.
