NEW YORK — ABC moved quickly to land one of the three men who foiled a terror attack on a Paris-bound train last month for the 21st season cast of "Dancing With the Stars."

The network announced Wednesday that Alek Skarlatos, who overpowered a gun-toting man last month with his friends Spencer Stone and Anthony Sadler, will be in the dancing competition that starts again on Sept. 14 (8 p.m. EDT).

Chef Paula Deen, actor Gary Busey and Bindi Irwin, actress-daughter of the late wildlife TV star Steve Irwin, are among the other cast members.

The cast is rounded out by "Spy Kids" actress Alexa PenaVega and her actor-husband, Carlos; singer Andy Grammer; singer Chaka Khan; 15-year-old online star Hayes Grier; "Real Housewives of Atlanta" cast member Kim Zolciak Biermann; former Backstreet Boy Nick Carter; reality star Tamar Braxton; and Triple Crown-winning jockey Victor Espinoza.
