Lawrence Taylor will be on Dancing with the Stars, Ashton Kutcher says

Former New York Giants linebacker Lawrence Taylor, who’s also known as L.T., will appear on Dancing with the Stars 8, if Ashton Kutcher is correct. On Twitter, Ashton tweeted this on Saturday:

“Just met LT, the old school, lawrence Taylor. Expect to see him in prime time soon. Can’t say where but he better work on his foot work.”

There are pretty much zero prime-time shows other than Dancing with the Stars where a celebrity would appear and need good footwork, never mind that Ashton is currently executive producing a reality series, True Beauty, for ABC–although his Twitter post does cite L.T. as his source, not an ABC insider.
