Recast Heathers 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!

Forgetting about the blight on his resume called Because I Said So, director Michael Lehmann was once praised for having created the ultimate mean girl movie, Heathers, in 1989. This dark comedy really defined the careers of Winona Ryder and Christian Slater, who were perfectly cast as sassy outsider Veronica and bad-boy J.D. Who in young Hollywood could fill those roles — and the all-important triumvirate of Heathers — today?

Leave your entry in the comment section below, and I'll pick one winner to feature Tuesday, June 5, 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:
Heather Duke (Shannen Doherty)
Heather McNamara (Lisanne Falk)
Heather Chandler (Kim Walker)
Veronica (Winona Ryder)
J.D. (Christian Slater)

Hmm I think Ben Foster may be a little old to play a highschooler, so I'll sub in Jonathan Tucker as my choice to play J.D.

Heathers is sacred in my book. I can't imagine any of today's bimbettes doing justice to the movie. I would protest a remake if it was ever made! ;)

Heather Duke:- America Ferrera (ugly betty of course, who better to play the bulimic who needs that red scrunchie of esteem?) Heather McNamara- Kaley Cuoco (Bridget from 8 simple rules, she plays the airhead quiet well) Heather Chandler- Adrianne Palicki( Tyra from Friday Night Lights, she has that "lick it up baby" look down pat) Veronica- Tina Majorino (Mac from Veronica Mars,so freaking talented) JD- Zachary Quinto (sylar on Heroes, those eyes do it for me)
