In case you haven't heard the news, ABC is giving the cult-classic Dirty Dancing the reboot treatment. Oscar-nominated actress Abigail Breslin and newcomer Colt Prattes take the roles of Baby and Johnny for a spin just in time for the film's 30th anniversary this summer. Despite the fact that we think attempting to recreate the pure perfection of Jennifer Grey and Patrick Swayze's dynamic is complete sacrilege, viewers can tune in for the three-hour musical spectacular, which airs on May 24 at 8 p.m. ET on ABCNow, here's the dirty on the cast.
