Dancing with the Stars to Cast Actual Stars?

by at .

Dancing with the Stars producers are reportedly on the hunt for more big-name talent and looking to cut down on the D-list dancers of the past.

Sorry, Dina Lohan.

Producers are under direct orders from ABC find "higher profile" people than in past seasons, which have been overrun by the likes of Bristol Palin, The Situation, Kate Gosselin, Audrina Patridge, Jake Pavelka and so on.

Sitch apparently isn't cutting it with ABC bigwigs.

In order to lock down bigger names, producers are offering A-listers complete control over their rehearsal schedule and routines - no minimum practice times, final say over music selections and even costume design, etc.

Whether this move is designed to lure in any big-name star in particular, or whether it will actually work for DWTS, remains to be seen.
