Lopez, who came in second to Emmitt Smith on Dancing in 2006, was lamenting Tuesday night's exit of Gladys Knight.
"I thought she was doing amazing," he said, when he added, "You know what, Kelly? They're doing a Dancing With the Stars: All-Stars this next season. They called me to do it."
ABC hasn't announced the plan yet, although DWTS co-host Brooke Burke-Charvet recently told Rachael Ray she'd love the idea and would want to dance again.
So is the Extra TV host going to compete? "I just don't know how I'd be able to pull it off," he said.
Let the casting begin! Who would you like to see return to the ballroom? Bristol Palin? Jennifer Grey? Metta World Peace?
