Lysacek does Letterman, 'Dancing' next

Fourth-Place Medal

Gold-medal winning figure skater Evan Lysacek appeared on David Letterman Tuesday night, doing one of "The Late Show's" trademark top-ten lists.

During the Olympics, both during his gold-medal win and after, when he was forced to defend himself against needless verbal jabs from Evgeni Plushenko, we only saw Lysacek's serious side. It's refreshing to see him not only joke around, but make fun of himself and his sport.

Lysacek is going to stay on your radar, as he is joining the next "Dancing with the Stars" cast, debuting March 22. Expectations will be high for him, as Olympians Apolo Ohno, Shawn Johnson and Kristi Yamaguchi have all won the show.
