Recast Empire Records

Recast Empire Records 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!

This week I was totally inspired by the American Teen soundtrack and chose for this week's recast challenge the movie with a soundtrack that rocked my world as a kid: Empire Records! Though I haven't seen the movie in a few years, I remember being completely envious of Liv Tyler's hair, being in love with Ethan Embry, and vowing to work at a record store and/or own one when I grew up.

But I digress. Let's recast this movie! Who would play the employees of this independently owned record store? There's the smart and leggy Corey (Tyler), cute A.J. (Johnny Whitworth), sexy free spirit Gina (Renée Zellweger), moody Debra (Robin Tunney), cute stoner Mark (Embry) and the quirky kid that tries to save the store, Lucas (Rory Cochrane).

Leave your entry in the comment section below, and I'll pick one winner to feature Tuesday, July 22, complete with a "new" cast photo.
