Recast Father of the Bride 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!

In honor of wedding planning mania on the Sugar Network, this week's Recast challenge is the 1991 remake of the Spencer Tracey classic, Father of the Bride. This film used to leave me feeling misty-eyed, though I now admit it's a tad on the ridiculous side.

Still, Steve Martin is a fantastic dadly type as George, and Kimberly Williams ais the quintessential daddy's-little-girl. Then, of course, there's Diane Keaton doing her normal good-natured tsk-tsking and Martin Short playing the flamboyant wedding planner Franck (or "Fraaaahhhhhnck").

If you could recast this sentimental comedy, who would you pick for the main characters? Leave your entry in the comment section below by the end of the day TODAY, and I'll pick one winner to feature Tuesday, April 24, complete with a "new" cast photo. To see a list of characters to recast and a photo of the BuzzSugar t-shirt,

Characters to recast:
George Banks (Steve Martin)
