    I am looking forward to her for entertainment! I really enjoy her.
    Corky Ballas - Mark's brother? - if so, I hope he is as fun. Should be good for laughs for a few weeks.

    That's probably better - the age thing would have been a little weird.

    And wasn't he also the coach of Derek/Julianne?

    God bless her, but I still think this is pushing it. But I give her an E for effort and think even I am underestimating her. But I'm wondering if she'll get a lot of support from the younger generation.

    I think this is ridiculous. Come on, she is 82 or 83, and she certainly can't be sexy in Latin dances. Not to mention, her body just won't be able to do the stuff required..

    I think that they should have put someone more able in her place. I have nothing against her, I don't even know who she is, but I don't think she should be on the show.

    IMO, she will be the female version of Jerry Springer/the guy from Cheers, John something.. and they were jokes.

    I love Cloris Leachman, her age worries me though. I hope she does well.

    Re: Cloris Leachman

    I'm afraid I have to agree with TV Junkie that this was a really ridiculous casting choice. Was there really no one else who was interested in being on this season?

    I don't think casting decisions should be based on whether or not a person will be "good for laughs" for a few weeks as anemone said. And I don't like the "aww, isn't she sweet and gutsy for even trying this" factor either.

    This just makes no sense to me at all.
