Recast Green Acres 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!

This week's recast challenge has a special twist: Former Green Acres director Richard L. Bare actually is looking to remake Green Acres for TV.

What's more, they're specifically looking for lookalike actors to physically match the original actors. So, you don't necessarily need to be totally familiar with these characters in order to recast the show — though if you'd like more information on the characters, check out the Green Acres Wikipedia page. And just think: You may actually see the actors you choose in the new version of Green Acres!

Leave your entry in the comment section below, and I'll pick one winner to feature Tuesday, November 27, 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:
Oliver Douglas (Eddie Albert)
Lisa Douglas (Eva Gabor)
Eb Dawson (Tom Lester)
Mr. Haney (Pat Buttram)
Hank Kimball (Alvy Moore)
Mother Douglas (Eleanor Audley)

Couldn't stand Green Acres, but I think Ashton Kutcher could definitely be Eb!
