Nick Viall and other rumored DWTS cast members better bring their A-game to Season 24 because they’re going to be competing against the toughest member of the A-Team.

The names of Dancing with the Stars Season 24 cast members are beginning to leak, and the show’s producers already feel like they’ve won their own Mirrorball Trophy. According to Entertainment Tonight, they finally got Mr. T to sign on for the show after trying to convince him to do it for years. Mr. T, whose real name is Lawrence Tureaud, is a retired wrestler who is probably best known for his role as B. A. Baracus on The A-Team TV series. The 64-year-old pop culture icon also starred in Rocky III.

“He will be a great contestant this season,” an insider said of Mr. T’s addition to the Season 24 cast.

If Mr. T wants to add a silver Mirrorball Trophy to his collection of gold bling, he’ll have to defeat a pint-sized athlete who is also known for wearing gold around her neck. According to Variety, 19-year-old Olympic gold medalist Simone Biles will follow in former teammate Laurie Hernandez’ footsteps by competing on DWTS. Hernandez and her partner, Val Chmerkovskiy, waltzed away with the win last season, but Simone doesn’t want to dance with the reigning champ. According to the gymnast, she would like to be partnered with Sasha Farber.
