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,
