Nicole Scherzinger ‘Dirty Dancing’ To North Carolina [NC Film]
Former Pussycat Dolls lead singer Nicole Scherzinger has officially joined Abigail Breslin (Scream Queens, Little Miss Sunshine) and Debra Messing (Will and Grace) in the upcoming TV musical remake of Dirty Dancing, about to shoot in western North Carolina, near where the classic original film was also made.
The new three-hour Dirty Dancing musical event will air on the ABC television network.
The original Dirty Dancing was released in 1987 starring Jennifer Grey in the role of “Baby” and the late Patrick Swayze.
While Breslin will take over Grey’s role, Colt Prattes dances into the part of Swayze’s “Johnny”, and Messing plays Baby’s mother Marjorie Houseman, Scherzinger will play “Penny” (originally played by Cynthia Rhodes).
