On Jimmy Kimmel Live Tuesday night, actor Gary Busey made a dramatic entrance on horseback to announce that he would appear on the next season of Dancing With the Stars.

When the comedian asked Busey what made him agree to be a part of the show, he simply replied, “I didn’t have anything else to do.”

The next season of the ABC show premieres Sept. 14 at 8:00 p.m. Eastern Time. The other stars on the show will include Paula Deen, Chaka Khan and Nick Carter.
