... You'll always be Johnny Castle to me...

... even if you were already 35 when the movie was released...

It's interesting that the CNN article mentions the movies "Dirty Dancing" and "Ghost" and the recent TV series "Beast" but totally blows by "Red Dawn" and "Roadhouse." Hrm. The BBC obit does a much better job going through his various career highs and lows. I kinda resent the photo caption being the place where they note that he has no children. Talk about irrelevant to the photo...
