Are you ready to see even more of this hunk on your TV? Good, because Antonio Sabato Jr. is going to compete on Dancing With the Stars this season!

While ABC doesn't comment on casting rumors, sources tells E! News that the General Hospital star is going to be one of the stars competing this cycle.

The full cast will be announced on Good Morning America on Sept. 4.

Italian-born Sabato is best known for his role on the daytime soap General Hospital, but he also gained popularity (and quite a lot of included!) for his work as a Calvin Klein model. Seriously, check out that photo above and try not to drool.

This season will see a major shake-up on DWTS when it comes to the judges. E! News previously revealed that former pro dancer (and two-time champion) Julianne Hough will return to the show as a judge, joining veteran judges Len GoodmanBruno Tonioli and Carrie Ann Inaba

"I'm so excited to be back with my DWTS family again on a regular basis," Hough said. "I've always aspired to be an all-around entertainer, whether I'm acting, dancing or singing, and I'm thrilled for this opportunity that will allow me to continue all of those pursuits. I am warming up the paddles and the sass, and I'm ready to have fun in this new role."

It's also a family reunion this season, as Hough's brother Derek Hough will return as a pro dancer alongside familiar faces Mark BallasCheryl BurkeVal ChmerkovskiyKarina Smirnoffand Tony Dovolani. Other pro dancers this season include Witney CarsonArtem ChigvinstevAllison HolkerKeo MostepePeta Murgatroyd and Emma Slater.

DWTS season 19 premieres on Sept. 15 at 8 p.m. on ABC.
