Dirty Dancing Remake at ABC: Mad Men Grad to Play Neil Kellerman

Mad Men alum Trevor Einhorn is Catskills-bound.

Einhorn has been cast as geeky, Baby-crushing Neil Kellerman in ABC’s three-hour Dirty Dancing remake, TVLine has learned. Neil takes an immediate interest in Baby, which her father strongly supports, much to Baby’s embarrassment. The role of Max’s tightly wound grandson was played in the original film by Lonny Price.

DDIn addition to his recurring stint as copy writer John Mathis on Mad Men, Einhorn is known for playing Frasier and Lilith’s son Freddy on Frasier.

Previously announced cast members for the Lionsgate-produced three-hour reboot of the 1987 big-screen smash include Scream Queens‘ Abigail Breslin (as Baby), dancer Colt Prattes (Johnny), The Mysteries of Laura‘s Debra Messing (Baby’s mother, Marjorie), American Crime Story‘s Bruce Greenwood (Baby’s dad Jake) and Modern Family‘s Sarah Hyland (Baby’s older sis Lisa).

To be adapted for television by Jessica Sharzer (American Horror Story) and counting Dirty Dancing screenwriter Eleanor Bergstein among its executive producers, the remake will feature “filmed song and dance performances,” per producer Lionsgate.

    I think he will be perfect for this. I’m still having a hard time picturing Abigail Breslin as Baby. Probably because I’ve seen Little Miss Sunshine too many times. She is perpetually that weird little girl in my head.

  2. Dirty dancing far from a property that warrants a 3hour time block. hows about miley as one the “staff” dancers who grinds her a– all over the place?
