Mr. T and Simone Biles will join the next season of ‘Dancing with the Stars’

I pity the fool that has to compete against Mr. T!

The actor and ex-professional wrestler will be joining the upcoming cast of “Dancing with the Stars” along with Olympic gold gymnast Simone Biles, Entertainment Tonight reported.

Producers have been trying to get Mr. T — whose real name is Laurence Tureaud — on the show for quite some time, a source told ET.

Mr. T, 64, has rarely made appearances since starring in the TV movie “WrestleMania XXX” back in 2014 and the last time he posted on social media was late December.

As for Biles, she has openly said she wanted to join the cast, but her schedule wouldn’t allow for it last season.

It’s likely she could steal the show as her gold medal-winning Final Five teammate, Olympic medalist Laurie Hernandez, was crowned “Dancing with the Stars” Season 23 winner.

Biles, 19, was the individual all-around, vault and floor gold medalist at the 2016 Olympics.

“I think [I’d like to dance with] Sasha [FARBER],” she told ET in August. “I think it would be cool to be with Sasha.”

The hit reality competition will air on March 20 with pros Maksim Chmerkovskiy and Peta Murgatroyd returning after welcoming their son Shai last month.
