On Monday, Deadline exclusively reported that Juliette Lewis had joined the live-action “Jem and the Holograms” movie

“Jem and the Holograms” centers on the characters from the 1980s cartoon by Hasbro. In the cartoon, Jerrica Benton transforms from Starlight music company owner into her lead singer, alter-ego through the use of Synergy, a computer built to be the ultimate entertainment synthesizer. Her holographic form appears when pressing her earring containing a micro-projector. Jem and her band, the Holograms, face adventures all over the world and try to avoid the Misfits, the Holograms' rival, and their chaos. 

For the uninitiated, Hasbro's Hub Network runs the half-hour show at 6:00am.

The cartoon series exists in the same universe as the “Transformers”, which Michael Bay recently rebooted, and “G.I. Joe.” Paramount’s recent attempt at rebranding the series the Joe series found middling reviews, unlike Dreamworks/Paramount’s “Transformers.” Director John M. Chu hasn’t announced whether “Jem” would follow either universe.

Universal's updated version features Jem (Aubrey Peeples) and the Holograms running across Los Angeles in a musical adventure. Producers are mum on who Lewis will play, but fans are speculating on where she’d fit. As a singer and actress, she could fulfill any number of supporting roles. Additionally, fans of the show are surprised Synergy’s portrayer still has not been revealed since she’s a vital element to the plot.

And, today, The Hollywood Reporter announced Molly Ringwald joined the cast.

In a strange twist of fate, Ringwald ruled the 1980s as a member of the Brat Pack, so the ruling queen working on a hit cartoon series adaptation screams…synergy. Like Lewis, her character remains unknown but MTV’s John Walker would like to see her as Synergy. And Walker wants Lewis to play Jem’s rival, Pizzazz, since Lewis is known for playing edgy, revenge-driven characters.

The other Holograms include Stefanie Scott (Kimber), Aurora Perrineau (Shana), and Hayley Kiyoko (Aja) with Ryan Guzman playing Jerrica’s boyfriend and Jem’s road manager, Rio.
