Recast Big and Win a Prize!

Every 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!

As one of my favorite movies of my youth, Big is close to my heart, and will be a tough one to recast! But if you could cast this film now with new actors, who would you choose for the little and big versions of Josh? What about Josh's best buddy Billy Kopecki or his womanly love interest Susan? Let's include the owner of the toy company, MacMillan, with whom the big Josh has that memorable piano-playing scene in FAO Schwartz.

Leave your entry in the comment section below, and I'll pick one winner to feature Tuesday, September 18, complete with a "new" cast photo. To see a list of characters to recast and a photo of the BuzzSugar t-shirt,


Characters to recast:
Josh (Tom Hanks)
Young Josh (David Moscow)
Susan (Elizabeth Perkins)
MacMillan (Robert Loggia)
Billy (Jared Rushton)
