We get our first look at the I am Patrick Swayze documentary and we can't even!

A heartbreaking insight into what drove this legend to superstardom and put him on the A-list in Hollywood.

Can you believe it has been almost 10 years since we lost the legendary Patrick Swayze?!

I mean... He was the iconic Johnny Castle in Dirty Dancing... you know, the incredibly sexy dance instructor who made every teen heart swoon with giddy anticipation that they would find their 'Johnny' on their summer break.

He made our hearts break as Sam... the deceased husband whose spirit couldn't leave his wife behind (Demi Moore) in Ghost

He was the insatiable surfing criminal Bodie, in Point Break with Keanu Reeves.

That is just our top three Swayze films, but there was SO MUCH more to him.

He was a ballet dancer, a musician, a father, a husband, a martial arts expert, a friend.

The documentary gives us an inside glimpse into the man behind the name, including tributes from his fellow actors Sam Elliot, Demi Moore, Rob Lowe, C. Thomas Howell, Kelly Lynch, plus his widow Lisa Nieme and his brother Don Swayze. 

On August 18th at 9/8c, Paramount Network is planning the ultimate birthday salute with #IAmPatrickSwayze.
