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!
Yes, I know A Christmas Story is a supremely beloved classic holiday movie, but it's the only holiday film we'll recast this season and it's the last recast for a few weeks as we kick into hectic holiday time. So, humor me! Who would you cast in a modern version of this film?
Since the young Ralphie, his meatloaf-hating little bro Randy, their mother and bristly "Old Man" are the main characters, let's stick to finding new actors for these roles. If you are struck with a genius idea for recasting some of the more peripheral characters, however, by all means — go for it!
Leave your entry in the comment section below, and I'll pick one winner to feature Tuesday, Dec. 18, complete with a "new" cast photo.
