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!
The WB (remember when it was just the WB?) has given me so many earnest dramas to revel in, and Felicity sucked me in from day one. I loved the idea of a "college drama" that portrayed higher education the way I liked to romanticize it, which is to say: full of cozy sweaters, intriguing classes, BFFs and boys. And deep thoughts. And working at coffee shops.
So, who would you cast as the main character Felicity, originally played with a subtle spunkiness by Keri Russell? Then there are the two main men in her life: dreamy Ben, who she followed to NYU, and responsible resident adviser Noel. Who would you cast as her funny Wiccan roommate Meghan, and good friend Julie? I think we should recast Felicity's other friends Elena and Sean, too. Finally, let's think of someone to play Javier, Felicity's boss at Dean & DeLuca.
Leave your entry in the comment section below, and I'll pick one winner to feature Tuesday, Nov. 25, complete with a "new" cast photo. To see a list of characters to recast and a photo of the BuzzSugar t-shirt,
