AUDIO FROM INTERVIEW at the LINK ….
Dirty Dancing’s Jennifer Grey stopped by for an interview with SiriusXM’s Jenny Hutt to talk about her Amazon show “Red Oaks” back for season two November 11th. In a sneak peak of the interview, Grey reveals that she would pick Natalie Portman and Ryan Gosling or Channing Tatum to star in a remake of her iconic film! Grey said, “That’s an interesting question. Hmm. I think Natalie Portman and Ryan Gosling. Wouldn’t you like to see them? Or Channing Tatum.”
Why Ryan Gosling and why Channing Tatum? “Well, The Gos has just got something, know what I mean? He’s just got something. He’s that very.. mysterious…he’s Canadian. But he’s just got that very non jewish thing – he’s just got that crazy thing you look at him and you go “Oh Gd”- that, what would that be like. And that’s all you need the guy to do. And you know (Ryan Gosling) he’s a great dancer.
You have to go back and look at his video with Justin Timberlake… when they were kids. When they were part of the Mickey Mouse Club. You have to see them together singing. You literally look like that is the sexiest guy in some MC Hammer pants!” Why Channing? “Oh. He dances honey. He’s a smoke show. He’s a goofball and he’s a genius. He’s so smart. and smart enough to not take himself so seriously… Magic Mike 2- I watched that movie – I was screaming and kicking. I couldn’t believe the amount of sexual energy in his dancing. And I think it’s really hard to find straight men who can dance, and REALLY dance. It’s just a beautiful thing.”
