Recast Fast Times at Ridgemont High 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!

Fast Times at Ridgemont High was one of the many great suggestions you gave me back when I asked for recast suggestions, and I think it's "high" time we got to recasting this awesome '80s teen movie!

If you could recast the movie with new actors, who would you pick for Stacy and her best friend, the, um, mature-for-her-age Linda? Who else could play the dazed and confused Spicoli? What about Stacy's hapless brother Brad, the nerdy Mark "Rat" Ratner and the shady Mike? Finally, of course, there's the hilariously named Mr. Hand to recast.

Leave your entry in the comment section below, and I'll pick one winner to feature Tuesday, October 2, complete with a "new" cast photo.

To see a list of characters to recast and a photo of the BuzzSugar t-shirt,
