Recast Good Will Hunting 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!

For this recast challenge, let's take a look at Good Will Hunting, which earned Robin Williams an Oscar for Best Supporting Actor along with a Best Original Screenplay win for dynamic duo Matt Damon and Ben Affleck.

If you could cast this movie with new actors, who would you choose for the genius janitor at MIT, Will Hunting? Besides Robin Williams, who else could play psychologist Sean Maguire, and which actress would take Minnie Driver's role as the romantic interest, Skylar? While we're at it, let's recast Ben Affleck's role as Will's best friend Chuckie Sullivan.

Leave your entry in the comment section below, and I'll pick one winner to feature Tuesday, March 4, complete with a "new" cast photo.

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