Abigail Breslin to Star in 'Dirty Dancing' Musical Remake!

Abigail Breslin has just landed a huge role in the remake of the hit 1987 movie Dirty Dancing, EW reports.

The 19-year-old Scream Queens actress will play Jennifer Grey‘s iconic role of Baby in the three hour event that will air on ABC.

In case you’re unfamiliar, the original film takes place at a summer holiday camp as Frances “Baby” Houseman falls in love with the camp’s dance instructor Johnny Castle (Patrick Swayze). The role of Johnny has not yet been announced.

The announcement comes on the heels of competitor network NBC’s huge success with The Wiz Live. FOX also has Grease Live coming next month.

    Well Abigail Breslin is definitely ugly enough to play Babe. But isn’t she too fat or “big boned” to be able to be a believable dirty dancer.

    That is the worst choice for the role…. Too ugly and can’t act toand now she is going to play this role. I definantly won’t be tuning in. I like scream queens but cringe when I see her face. it almost makes me not want to watch the show altogether.
