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 director Cameron Crowe's Jerry Maguire, which earned Cuba Gooding Jr. an Oscar for Best Supporting Actor and launched Renée Zellweger into stardom.
If you could cast this movie with new actors, who do you think would convey the magnetism of sports agent Jerry Maguire? Who else besides Cuba could pull off the "show me the money" sequence, and what other actress could endearingly utter, "You had me at hello"?
Finally, Jonathan Lipnicki ran away with every scene he was in as Dorothy's son Ray Boyd. Is there a little guy out there you think would be adorable in that part as well?
Leave your entry in the comment section below, and I'll pick one winner to feature Tuesday, March 18, complete with a "new" cast photo.
