After appearing on Broadway and the silver screen, the T-Birds and Pink Ladies are set to hand-jive onto TV sets. Fox has revealed plans to air a live-action version of Grease next year.
One does not simply reboot Grease without creating a little hype. Add the success of NBC's live Sound of Music with Carrie Underwood, and Rydell High enthusiasts are blowing up the Web with their celebrity casting predictions.
No official casting news has been released, so we created our own fantasy roster of stars to inspire Fox. It's a group that goes together like shoobop sha wadda wadda yippity boom de boom.

The Pink Ladies
Ariel Winter as Marty: We've watched Winter grow up with the wacky cast of Modern Family; now it's time to see if she can handle high school and choreography.
Rebel Wilson as Jan: The Brush Up jingle is begging for a revamp from the sarcastically silly Aussie. Brusha brusha, motherflosser.
Joe Jonas as Doody: With the Jonas Brothers broken up, Joe can find boy-band coziness once more in the loving arms of the T-Birds.
Nick Jonas as Sonny: Or Fox could cast two JoBros as the musical's goofy duo. The partial reunion would surely draw a entirely new group of squealing girls to Grease.
