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!
There have been so many fantastic recast challenge ideas submitted by you (and keep 'em coming if you have more ideas!), and when I saw WhiplashGirlchild's suggestion for the 1985 movie Clue, I was thrilled, since I've been dying to recast this one.
Everyone has a motive and an arsenal of great lines in this whodunit, and the cast managed to give depth to a movie based on a board game. Madeline Kahn is outstanding as "mourning" widow Mrs. White, and Tim Curry oozes as the overly gracious butler. With such great archetypes — from sultry Miss Scarlet to the mousy Mr. Green — it would be fun to see this movie recast with modern actors. Who would you choose?
Leave your entry in the comment section below, and I'll pick one winner to feature Tuesday, June 19, complete with a "new" cast photo. To see a list of characters to recast and a photo of the BuzzSugar t-shirt,
