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

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

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

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?
