Recast The Karate Kid 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!

Here's an oldie but goodie that was so cool the first time around it spawned several sequels — including The Next Karate Kid, starring Hilary Swank. Given the opportunity to recast The Karate Kid, who would you put in the part of wise Mr. Miyagi and his "grasshopper," Daniel? What about Daniel's lady friend Ali and her mean ex-boyfriend/Daniel's enemy Johnny?

Leave your entry in the comment section below, and I'll pick one winner to feature Tuesday, May 22, 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:
Mr. Miyagi (Pat Morita)
Daniel LaRusso (Ralph Macchio)
Ali Mills (Elisabeth Shue)
Johnny Lawrence (William Zabka)
