"King of the Big Scream"
David Arquette is an actor, writer, director, producer and, now, a competitor on Dancing With The Stars!
In 1997, David was discovered at Sundance for his role in johns. Since that time, he has acted in dozens of feature films, including the Scream flicks, Hamlet 2, The Grey Zone, Dream with the Fishes, Never Die Alone and The Darwin Awards. This year, David reprised his role as Deputy Dewey Riley in the much anticipated fourth installment of the Scream films. David also joined the cast of the Disney Television interactive series Jake and the Never Land Pirates, where he lends his voice as Scully, a lookout pirate parrot who helps Jake and his crew of kid pirates.
In January of 2003, David formed a production company, Coquette Productions, with Courteney Cox. Through their company, he wrote and produced his directorial debut, The Tripper as well as The Butlers in Love, in which he serves as executive producer and director. Also under the Coquette banner, David was a producer for the F/X drama, "Dirt" and ABC's Cougar Town. Up next, Arquette will direct the 3D psychological thriller Glutton for Remember Dreaming Productions and will executive produce through Coquette.
As busy as David is, we're glad he found time to compete for that coveted Mirrorball trophy on Dancing With The Stars!

If you're wondering who to thank for introducing Kym to the world of ballroom dancing, look no further than her immediate family. No, it wasn't her parents. It was her brother! Apparently, he thought dancing would be a good way to meet girls, so Kym was dragged along to the lessons. Way to go, bro!
It wasn't long before Kym was dancing competitively. In December 1998, she and then-partner Tomas Atkocevicius came second at the Australian DanceSport Championships in the Open Amateur Modern Ballroom.
However, we got our first DWTS glimpse of Kym she was paired with Jerry Springer in Season 3. Remember how Kym and Jerry were such fan favorites during their impressive run, which ended with a 5th Place finish? She stepped things up in Season 4 when she dazzled us on her way to a second place finish with Joey Fatone. Loved it! Then in Season 9, Kym took parter Donny Osmond all the way to the Mirror Ball Trophy.
You could say Kym "got down under" when she appeared on Dancing with the Stars (Australia). She also appeared in several TV ads as well as a sexy modeling shoot for FHM magazine. But even though the camera loves her, you can't keep Kym off the dance floor for long, as she also performed on the world tour of the modern ballroom stage show Burn the Floor.
Other highlights of her successful career include dancing at Elton John's 50th birthday party and appearing in the hit movie Strictly Ballroom. But we'll always love her for Dancing With The Stars!

Didn't expect to like him, but I LOVED him! Loved watching him dance - it wasn't perfect by any means, but he is fun to watch. Look forward to seeing more of him. ANd how nice that Courtney brought his little girl to watch him - she is adorable.
