Just like Demi Moore proved she can do with a man, we love it when an old movie takes on a younger cast!
And now that Dirty Dancing is indeed getting its remake on, start humming "Time of My Life" and get your hot multi-talent dreams in order:
See, we've got a thing for remaking beloved flicks (that don't necessarily need to be remade), like Sex and the City, and we certainly can't resist re-doing the one where Jennifer Grey's Baby loses her virginity—and two-step—to hunky Patrick Swayze!
Here's who we came up with:
First up is Jennifer's break-through role, and, remember, Grey herself has approved the flick. So, we think her next-generation replacement should be between…
Emma Stone: The current Hollywood It girl can sing, she can dance and she's cute as a damn button! Plus, if you've seen Crazy, Stupid, Love you know that she can already handle the movie's staple dance move: getting lifted into the air.
Dianna Agron: With her time on Glee (possibly) coming to an end, Di's future looks like it's on the big screen. The babe has proven that she can play nice, but we know she has a sexy side to her that's just itching to dance its way into Cineplexes.
Selena Gomez: Selena has that whole good-girl thing down perfectly and we know she can sing and dance with the best of ‘em. Plus, she needs a sorta-controversial role to break away from her Disney persona and show she's a star on her own.
Then there's Patrick Swayze's infamous bad-boy, Johnny Castle, who decided that nobody is going to put Baby in a corner. Do one of these fine studs have what it takes to own the iconic lover role?
Garrett Hedlund: Need some proof? He displayed his pipes in Country Strong, showed he's a tough guy in TRON (and a handful of other flicks), and his T-town star is only on the rise. We have no doubt he could make any of those potential female costars swoon.
Shia LaBeouf: Shia's movie roles of late have proven that he can play quite the bad-boy womanizer. We think he's got the perfect scruffy mug to take on the role and, as for the singing, well, that's why Hollywood hires vocal coaches, right?
Chord Overstreet: The former Glee guy didn't exactly get his hands dirty on the Fox hit, but we think he might have it in him to act a little rough around the edges. Plus, we know he can sing and dance, so that makes him a frontrunner.
