What better way to announce that Gary Busey will appear on the forthcoming season of Dancing With the Stars than by having Busey ride a horse out onto Jimmy Kimmel’s late-night stage? No better way, apparently: that’s how Busey was revealed as the competition show’s ninth contestant on Tuesday night.

“I am so proud to be here with you,” Busey said to Kimmel. “To announce this incredible, [life]-changing thing.” When Kimmel asked why Busey decided now was the time to join Dancing With the Stars, the actor replied, “I didn’t have anything else to do.” Busey then rode his horse off the stage.

This season of Dancing With the Stars is set to include Andy Grammer, Chaka Khan, Victor Espinoza, and Vine star Hayes Grier, among other contestants. (Busey’s horse will not participate.)
