Recast Results: Dirty Dancing

The original cast of Dirty Dancing made it a beloved classic for many of us, but the lists submitted for last week's Recast challenge were just as impressive! I particularly liked Yiddidea's choice of Christian Bale for Johnny — his Newsies performance is still dear to my heart. And being a Zooey Deschanel fan, I can easily picture her playing Baby's sister Lisa, as suggested by WhiplashGirlchild, LaLa0428, Chancleta, and Yiddidea.

I love that Lslybanks chose recent Oscar-winner Alan Arkin for Dr. Houseman, though I could also see Tom Hanks in the role, thanks to Sheena.

However, my favorite Recast list this week comes from Brazilnut! At first I was torn about casting Gwen Stefani, but then again, who knew Justin Timberlake could act? Plus, at least Gwen can dance. Congrats, Brazilnut! To see her list and the "new" cast photo,

Woot! Buzz used the exact pictures I would have for the "new cast" photo too! Gwen's a fantastic entertainer, so I'm sure she'd be able to pull off acting. I know we see Sawyer (I just can't call him by his real name)all sweaty and stuff every week, but he would sure look nice in that water scene!

Aww..thanks for the mention Buzz. I would LOVE to see Christian Bale in this role...but then again, I would watch him read the phone book. ;)

OMG that is so brilliant! Dirty Dancing will always be near and dear to my heart. Your recasts are all so frigging fabulous though! Christian Bale would have been PERFECT--Newsies was another classic! You guys are geniuses (geniusi?)
