Did You Know They Are Making A Dirty Dancing TV Reboot?

Do we all remember the Dirty Dancing "sequel" that happened in the early 2000s? Still trying to forget it? Well, Hollywood is trying once again to revisit the magic of Dirty Dancing, this time by rebooting the original story for a TV movie with an all new cast.

Seriously? Really not sure how to feel about this. The original was such a classic, why do they need to remake it? They have managed to get a pretty impressive cast to play all the roles from the 1987 classic. Here is who they have:


Abigail Breslin as Baby

The former Oscar nominee will be filling the dancing shoes of Baby.

Cole Prattes as Johnny Castle

So far his most notable credit is from a Pink music video so... not super sure what to expect.

Debra Messing as Marjorie Houseman

I don't know that anyone could have the same attitude as Kelly Bishop, but let's hope so.

Bruce Greenwood as Dr. Jake Houseman

He is a pretty awesome actor, so let's have some faith I guess.

Sarah Hyland as Lisa Houseman

Let's hope they keep in Lisa's ridiculous dance because that is one of the funniest moments in the whole movie.

Nicole Scherzinger as Penny Rivera

Her acting credits aren't all that extensive, but she has been doing more lately. Did you know she was a voice in the new Disney movie Moana?

Trevor Einhorn as Neil Kellerman

I didn't recognize him at first but apparently he used to play Frederick Crane on Frasier (aka Frasier's son)! He also was in Mad Men for a few seasons.

Shane Harper as Robbie Gould

Robbie is a jerk to poor Lisa. Shane Harper however has a fairly impressive resume, recently on quite the TV Movie kick.

Katey Sagal as Vivian Pressman

Oh Vivian, you really are quite the interesting character. It will be fun to see how Katey deals with her.

Billy Dee Williams as Tito

Will he be as cool as the original?

Casper Smart as Billy Kotsecki

He might be best known for dating Jennifer Lopez, but he has started to do some acting.

What do you think of the cast list? Should they be doing a TV movie of something that is such a classic?

The True Story Behind "The Sound of Music" Is Even Better Than Whiskers On Kittens

When Julie Andrews brought the sound of music down from the mountains and into our hearts, she brought with it a love for the real-life von Trapp family, who the story was based on. The movie follows the autobiography of the real Maria von Trapp, who was a nun that became a part of an Austrian family before the Nazi occupation in World War II. The film accurately portrays a lot about their lives and demeanor, but in Maria's published memoirs (that the film was based on) it is easy to see how much becomes simple Hollywood figment. Here are
