Mr. Artest aka Metta World Peace is currently in talks with ABC to possibly be the first NBA player to join the cast of Dancing With The Stars.
We get more from TMZ:
Nothing’s official yet — but sources tell us, both Artest and “Dancing” producers have been in touch to hash out a possible deal … and Ron’s pretty excited about the prospect.
But here’s the catch — “Dancing” won’t end ’til November and basketball season typically starts in October … which means if the lockout ends early, Ron could be S.O.L.
That said, Ron could theoretically handle both commitments simultaneously — because as TMZ first reported, “Dancing” producers are desperate for A-list talent
Hopefully, Metta World Peace will show his interplanetary dance moves in the upcoming season.
