The new season of Dancing with the Stars is still two weeks away but anticipation is building, especially thanks to the release of the official portraits of the sexy and controversial cast.
There's the man everyone is talking, blogging and tweeting about -- Chaz Bono. Looking more dapper than ever, Chaz is seen arm-in-arm with his pro partner Lacey Schwimmer.
Then there's the "man to beat" -- according to many of his competitors -- David Arquette with his partner, Kym Johnson. Soccer great Hope Solo, paired with the always hunky Maksim Chmerkovskiy, may also be a top contender.
Cheryl Burke is taking reality stud Rob Kardashian under her sexy wings, while Karina Smirnoff will be trying to make a dancing champion out of war hero-turned-daytime star J.R. Martinez.
Also in the portraits, Nancy Grace, Chynna Phillips, Kristin Cavallari, Ricki Lake, Ron Artest, Carson Kressley and George Clooney's ex-girlfriend Elisabetta Canalis.
Season 13 kicks off on ABC September 19.
