After intense Internet speculation, the first casting choices for the Jem and the Holograms movie are out. So, who will be our pink-haired leading lady?

The title role of the exciting, adventurous Jerrica "Jem" Benton will be portrayed by Nashville actress Aubrey Peeples. Relative newcomers Stefanie Scott, Aurora Perrineau and Hayley Kiyoko have signed on to play Jem's Hologram bandmates.

News of the reboot first hit the Web earlier this year, when Justin Bieber's manager, Scooter Braun, and Justin Bieber: Never Say Never director Jon M. Chu announced the project. The original '80s cartoon tells the neon-hued tale of Starlight Music Manager Jerrica, who can turn into rock superstar Jem with the tap of her sparkly earrings.





Now that fans know who is manning the band, it's time to meet our new Holograms.
