Juliette Lewis and Molly Ringwald join Jem and the Holograms

With the fast approaching and already in production Jem and the Holograms movie, it is about time we heard some casting news…. Like someone other than Jem and her Holograms.

It seems that Juliette Lewis and 80s Brat Pack princess Molly Ringwald have joined the cast, but their roles are not yet revealed, though many rumours seem to suggest Lewis might be Jem’s computer assistant Synergy.

But I have a different theory.

I think Juliette Lewis and Molly Ringwald will be members of the Holograms’ nemesises The Misfits.

The Misfits were always out to get Jem and her friends. Misfits sang angry punk like music vs the Holograms uplifting and positive girly pop music and ballads. Still the hate ran deep and I was wondering how they would present this in the movie.

Here’s my theory – The Misfits are an aging group of bitter girl rockers, losing their youthful appeal and popularity to the young likeable upstarts taking the pop world by storm. Jem and the Holograms are truly outrageous. Who wouldn’t be jealous of their success?

Casting Juliette Lewis – already a badass in her own right – as the front bitch of the Misfits (Pizzazz) is perfect. Molly Ringwald can obviously sing, but that’s not a requirement in this film. Still she knows how to set a presence in both the musical and theatrical stage. I can almost see her as the almost sweet Roxy, the Misfit who often voices concerns that they are being too mean (but is easily swayed back to support their malicious agenda)

What do you think?
