    Actor Patrick Swayze, who went from Broadway dancer to Hollywood star in box-office hits like "Dirty Dancing" and "Ghost," died on Monday, U.S. media reports said. He was 57.

    Swayze, whose spokesman announced in March 2008 that the actor had pancreatic cancer, died at home with his family at his side, ABC News reported, citing his spokeswoman Annett Wolf.


    The Texas native began his career as a dancer and made dozens of stage, film and TV appearances over four decades. Pop culture immortality came with 1987's "Dirty Dancing," which defied Hollywood expectations to become one of the most-watched movies of all time.


    Swayze played the swaggering Castle in the film opposite Jennifer Grey's sheltered teenager, Frances "Baby" Houseman, who becomes smitten with Castle while on vacation at a New York resort during the 1960s.


    An unlikely romance builds between the pair as Castle trains the gawky teen to stand in for his partner at a dance-off in the film's climactic scene and confronts her father with the often-quoted line from the film: "Nobody puts Baby in the corner."


    "Dirty Dancing," which was made for a modest budget and almost scrapped by its studio, became a massive box-office hit, earning Golden Globe nominations for both stars and spawning the Oscar-winning hit single "(I've Had) The Time of My Life."

    But...

    & i'm sorry, i'm not being controversial for the sake of it, but I have to say this...

    Even though I make jokes of Cancer, I have had family members die of it & The Swayze was diagnosed, then subsequently refused treatment, because he refused to quit smoking.

    My relatives would have quite literally died, to obtain the level of care & treatment that was offered to him.

    I don't think I need to say anymore.

    RIP still.

    Re: RIP the Swaywe

    Patrick Swayze just confirmed he has pancreatic cancer. When asked how he wants to be treated by the press, Swayze seemed welcoming.

    "My radiologist says for every bad-joke headline that says "nobody puts cancer in a corner," I get a free netflix!"

    ==

    What have Patrick Swayze and Stevie Wonder got in common?

    Neither of them will see Christmas.

    ==

    Patrick Swayze died today at the age of 57.
    Swayze was welcomed at the pearly gates by Jennifer Greys career.

    ==

    Will "Ghost" now be re-classified as a documentary?

    ==

    "YO PATRICK SWAYZE I KNOW U JUST DIED & IMA LET YOU FINISH, BUT MICHAEL JACKON'S DEATH WAS THE BEST ONE THIS YEAR" - Kanye West

    ==

    So Patrick Swayze and Michael Jackson are in heaven arguing over who gets to put baby in the corner

    ==

    You can't put Baby in a corner.

    But you can put Swayze in a box

    ==

    patrick swayze died at the end of point break whats all the fuss about

    ==

    I wonder if Demi Moore is getting a tingling sensation in the lower region around now?
