When it comes to casting, we all love a bit of the rumour mill, in this case there’s good, there’s bad, and there’s somewhat that ugly.

Like Footloose, Dirty Dancing is also getting a facelift. Although there is no need, the good news is that Lea Michele (Glee) is in the lineup to play Baby (originally played by Jennifer Grey). The other news is that apparently Michele is in competition with Miley Cyrus and Selena Gomez… lame and… lame!

Dirty Dancing Candidates

Dancing with the Stars pro, Derek Hough is the top candidate to play Patrick Swayze’s hot shot character, Johnny Castle. Afterall, Hough did do a great job recreating a Dirty Dancing moment with Jennifer Grey on DWTS, so I’m not surprised. Let’s hope there isn’t a Grease remake in the works.

The remake is due to be released in 2013.
