Sean Avery is joining the cast of “Dancing with the Stars,” according to Page Six of The New York Post.
The former NHL goon and fashionista has been spotted working out in preparation for the show at the New York studio of Gwyneth Paltrow’s trainer Tracy Anderson, sources told the gossip site.
The move will be Avery’s latest career change after working at high-fashion ad agency Lipman, which ran out of cash and closed last year.
Sources said the well-travelled NHL player recently posted a video of himself online showing off some Anderson-inspired dance moves to Katy Perry’s “Dark Horse,” but the video was taken down.
“DWTS” recently replaced host Brooke Burke-Charvet with sports reporter Erin Andrews.
Season 18 kicks off on March 17.
