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!
Last week I asked you all to chime in with ideas for the beloved JJ Abrams college drama, Felicity. Some of you expressed dismay at the thought of recasting this show — and don't worry, I too am in love with the show, and there's no actual remake in the works or anything like that. This really is just for fun! So, on with the game.
The role of Felicity is key. She's a mix of super-smart, girly, and highly neurotic, and the audience must be able to sympathize with her. I like Whip's idea for Kristen Stewart in this role, and alethe16's suggestion for Olivia Thirlby is awesome, too. Several of you suggested Emily VanCamp as well, and in my mind, you just can't go wrong with that girl.
I also really like sundew's idea for Kat Dennings to play Felicity's roommate, Meghan! I love that actress so much. As for the guys, alynn's suggestion for Taylor Kitsch to play Ben is inspired and right on in my mind. But it was the recast that included a member of the cast of Privileged, one of my favorite shows on the air right now, that won me over. Congratulations to nomiloo2000!
