There's no shortage of remakes on television these days. "90210" ... "Melrose Place" ... "Parenthood" ... and let's not forget "Cougar Town!" (Oh, that's not a remake? Feels familiar.) However, it was announced yesterday that the 1985 Brat Pack melodrama "St. Elmo's Fire" will also be added to the league of low-hanging fruit-cum-TV-shows, and honestly, there are no complaints here! We love "St. Elmo's Fire;" it's chock full of yuppie greed, infidelity and Rob Lowe in earrings -- who could ask for more? Not to mention it boasts of perhaps the most boss, epic theme song of all time (and there was this).
Wonderwall felt compelled to pick the contemporary stars who should play each character, because, well, we know best. Keep clicking to see the "cast-a-likes" that should light up the streets of Georgetown once more.
