Here's whose fancy footwork you'll be seeing.Marlee Matlin, 42, an Academy Award winning, almost completely deaf, actress who also appeared in an episode of Seinfeld. Matlin will dance with Fabian Sanchez, age unknown. I recognize Sanchez appears better suited for a cubicle than the dance floor in his picture, but it's the best I could find. Penn Jillette, 52, the gross and gigantic half of the magical duo Penn and Teller. The guy is 6 feet 6 inches tall! Jillette will dance with Kym Johnson, 30ish.
