Allen, Grammer, Dutton, and others get to live forever in Fame

debbieallenOf course Debbie Allen is going to be in the remake of Fame. It wouldn’t make sense if she wasn’t. However, the names of the some of the instructors she will be overseeing as the performing arts school’s principal in Lakeshore and MGM’s remake has just been released to places like Variety, and their pedigrees are sound:

Hollywood Reporter notes that some of the other kids in the cast have been set as well; their names are Kristy Flores, Paul Iacono, Paul McGill, Naturi Naughton and Kay Panabaker and none of them sound familiar to me, which is awesome because there were unknowns in the first Fame as well.

Jazz hands!

    oh wow. I hadn’t heard about this remake. I’m torn! I hate remakes, but but but – the dancing! the music! the artsy angst! Gah……

    Okay…I’ll let them do this remake as long as they’re using (1) Debbie Allen, (2) actors with relevant, real talents, and (3) unknowns for the students.

    Keep in mind, the original was already re-made into a TV series…it’s already been adulterated, so what harm can come from doing it again?

    Not sure if you’d call him a “name” but in the “Related Posts” section, I’d buried a notice about Thomas “Young John Connor” Dekker being the lead in the movie. But that’s okay with me, actually.
