What a beautiful way to remember him. Whenever we think on Patrick Swayze, we always remember him as the sexy Johnny Castle standing tall and dancing sultry to the music with Jennifer Grey. Such a legacy.
Yesterday, his wife Lisa Niemi was on hand to unveil the wax figure of her husband at Madame Tussauds Hollywood, depicting him in a pivotal scene in Dirty Dancing.
Very sweet. Now, hold long before someone tries to do a lift with it. LOL.

This rendition of the famous Unchained Melody (made super popular by the Demi Moore/Patrick Swayze film Ghost) really impresses us.
Soo much SOUL!
Lykke Li really shows her vocal range as the guitarist delicately strums along.
U have to check it out! It can only improve UR day!!!
Ever since we heard about that failed sequel in 2008, we KNEW something like this was coming!
Yesterday, Alcon Entertainment announced plans to remake 1991 action flick Point Break, which starred Keanu Reeves and Patrick Swayze.
The new Point Break will be released by Warner Bros, and it's getting fast tracked, so we can expect to hear a lot more about this soon.
Here's what Alcon co-founders/co-CEOs Broderick Johnson and Andrew Kosove had to say about the new movie:
It isn't fairing so well on the West End, but maybe there's a place for it on The Great White Way.
It's been decided that GHOST: The Musical will be coming to Broadway this spring. Curtains will rise on the musical in April of next year, at one of the Nederlander Theaters, though one has not been chosen yet. The production currently stars Richard Fleeshman and Caissie Levy as the romantic leads who hold onto their love even in death, however, it is uncertain whether they will follow the show to New York.
It sounds kind of hokey to us, but some people might like.

Kenny Ortega is fully aware of the hate spewed his way, but he's ready for the challenge that lies ahead as he directs the remake of Dirty Dancing.
The beloved 80s film is a classic. Everyone knows 'nobody puts baby in a corner.'
But some people thinking remaking such a classic is doing just that.
However, the director assures us he doesn't want to cause any disrespect, stating:
Well, unfortunately, there's someone else out there who wanted it more, so no dice!
Check out (above) one of the creepiest things we've ever seen, a life sized wax figure of Patrick Swayze dressed as his character from the 1989 flick Road House.
Created by Logan Fleming, this terrifying piece of art, which "sports his famous flowing 1980s hair style, khaki pants, and short sleeve black polo shirt" was recently auctioned off for an unknown final selling price.
Oh, and he didn't come with shoes.
Yeah. If this doesn't deserve the first serious 'WTF?!' of the day, then we'd be frightened to know what does!
Not the best way to honor his memory.
It's hard to believe, but a year ago today, the world lost a wonderful man, actor and humanitarian. Patrick Swayze was a lot of things to a lot of people, but to his wife, Lisa Niemi, he was simply the love of her life.
On the anniversary of his passing, Lisa is remembering her husband in her own way - by launching a new awareness program as the new spokeswoman for Pancreatic Cancer Action Network. Lisa's campaign, called Be a Hero in the Fight Against Pancreatic Cancer: Know it. Fight it. End it, will feature videos and messages of hope from Lisa in hopes of finding a cure and reaching out to those who are suffering.
But Lisa also has plans to commemorate the day in a more personal way. Lisa told sources that she is looking into picking out the "most beautiful tree ever" and planting it in an "extraordinary spot" at the couples ranch just North of Los Angeles. She confesses she spends a lot of time at the ranch these days and admits that she still feels Patrick's presence. She says:
"I do sense his presence, and I like that. Just because he's gone now doesn't mean that love doesn't go on."
