Real estate mogul Donald Trump may not have decided whether he’s running for president, but he’s definitely put together the strangest cabinet yet for the upcoming season of “Celebrity Apprentice.”
The Donald went on “Late Night With Jimmy Fallon” on Thursday to unveil the cast for the 11th season of the reality competition, and once again it is a fascinating grab bag of musicians, models, sports figures and actors.
From the world of music, the cast of 16 includes King of Crunk Lil Jon, Sugar Ray singer Mark McGrath, country star John Rich, classic rocker Meat Loaf, LaToya Jackson and R&B legend Dionne Warwick.
Among the actors signing on for the chance to win some cash for the charity of their choice are unhinged reality staple Gary Busey, 1970s teen idol and “Partridge Family” star David Cassidy, Lisa Rinna and Academy Award winner Marlee Matlin.
“LaToya Jackson and Gary Busey anywhere, I’m there!” Fallon enthused. “Gary Busey, yikes.”
The other famous faces include tax-troubled “Survivor” winner Richard Hatch, “Real Housewives of Atlanta” firecracker NeNe Leakes, former “View” host Star Jones, model Niki Taylor, former baseball star Jose Canseco and Playboy Playmate of the Year Hope Dworaczyk.
Jon and Leakes joined Trump on Fallon’s show on Thursday to help promote the upcoming season by playing a game of charades, with Jon seemingly unclear on the rules of the rec-room staple.
“It was like fistfights all the time,” Trump told Fallon about the tension between Jones and Leakes. “I’ve never seen confrontations like that. In fact, they make Omarosa look nice!”
Last season was one of the most drama-filled to date, as Poison singer Bret Michaels took the prize amid the medical crisis of his brain hemorrhage. The show premieres on March 6 on NBC.
