Recast Annie Hall and Win a Prize!

Every other Wednesday on BuzzSugar, I post a Recast challenge, where I ask you to choose new actors for a classic TV show or movie. The reader who submits the best cast wins a BuzzSugar t-shirt!

For this recast challenge, the only requirement is to think of new actors for the main two characters: Annie (Diane Keaton) and Alvy (Woody Allen). However, if you wish to recast other characters from the film, you are welcome to do so! Who could play these two iconic, anxious people?

Leave your entry in the comment section below, and I'll pick one winner to feature Tuesday, February 5, complete with a "new" cast photo.

To see a list of characters to recast and a photo of the BuzzSugar t-shirt,

Or: Katie Holmes (I just watched this movie last night and was thinking how Diane reminded me of Joey) and Larry David (big age difference, I know, but Larry is so much like Woody in Annie Hall, it's crazy)

I'd also pick Jason Schwartsman for the part of Alvy. he just resembles the neurotic pessimistic character of Alvy so well. and I'd pick Maggie Gyllenhaal for the part of Annie. I think she could do really well with that role.

I think it's interesting that so many people chose actors/actresses who are so young! Diane Keaton was in her early 30's and Woody Allen was in his early 40's when they made this movie. So, my picks are: Alvy-Vince Vaughn (He's physically different from Woody Allen, but he can totally play the dorky, funny, neurotic guy to a t.) Annie-Anne Hathaway (She's a few years younger than Diane Keaton was when Annie Hall was made, but not that much. And, like Diane Keaton, she is beautiful, but doesn't always play "typically beautiful" women.) Anyway, just my thoughts! I'm interested to see who else people come up with! This is a good one; I never would have thought of it!
