Recast Bosom Buddies

The Results Are In: Recast Bosom Buddies

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!

Casting this drag-tastic hit show is challenging because you have to think about which guys can pull off being girls who live, undetected, among girls.

I find it hilarious that several of you cited Ashton Kutcher for the Tom Hank's character Kip Wilson, a.k.a. Buffy because Ashton is very pretty. Honestly, if he showed up in my women-only hotel in a wig and heels I'm not sure I'd think, "That's a dude." Same goes for lynettes's suggestion for that role, Adrian Grenier (assuming he shaves).

As for Kip's reluctant partner in cross-dressing, Henry Desmond a.k.a. Hildegarde (originally played by Peter Scolari), I think alethe16's suggestion of Zachery Levi is a great one. We know he's got the less-than-confident shtick down on Chuck. I really like fuzzles's suggestion of America Ferrera for the boys' responsible friend who's in on their secret, and I think songguy's suggestion of Jaime Pressly as Kip's hotel crush is cute.

Thanks for pitching in your ideas, they were a lot of fun to visualize! But I can only choose one, and I think controlledspin's cast as a whole is awesome — and I especially love her two male leads. Congrats to controlledspin!

To see who she chose, along with new cast photos,


controlledspin's cast list:
Kip Wilson a.k.a. Buffy — Tom Everett Scott

Wow, that is an awesome recast controlledspin! I think this is one of my favorites, and I love this feature. Tom Everett Scott is so perfect, so is Felicity Huffman. But Steve Zahn takes the cake- I love that guy and he is perfect here. Nice work! I wish I wasn't so terrible at coming up with ideas for these!

If I could win one of these I'd like this feature more...sike it's lots of fun. Congrats to the winner. Buzz- I think young Tom Hanks was pretty! He looks so in the poster above anyway. Very Grenier-ish.

people have said that tom everett scott looks like he could be Tom Hanks son so it makes sense! I read somewhere they almost didn't cast him in That Thing you Do because they looked alike
