Patrick Swayze passed away on Sept. 14, 2009, after a long battle with pancreatic cancer, but his memory as a Hollywood icon has not been forgotten. Not only are remakes of iconic Swayze films like 'Point Break' and 'Dirty Dancing' in the works (fingers crossed for 'Ghost' as well), but a new wax statue of the star was unveiled this week at Madame Tussauds in Hollywood, immortalizing one of Swayze's most famous onscreen moments: his 'Dirty Dancing' log walk. Swayze's wife Lisa Niemi was on hand to debut the statue Wednesday night, and -- in a somewhat surprising twist -- even struck a pose opposite the wax figure, a la Jennifer Grey in the hit 1987 film.
