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!
For this week's challenge, let's take a covered-wagon ride back to a bygone era when the wholesome Ingalls family embodied the American pioneer spirit. If you could recast the 1974-1983 TV series "Little House on the Prairie," based on the novels by Laura Ingalls Wilder, which actors would you choose? Who could play Laura Ingalls (originally played by Melissa Gilbert), or the ultimate prairie Pa, Charles Ingalls (made memorable by Michael Landon)? Or what about Laura's mother, Caroline, and the other Ingalls girls Mary and Carrie?
Leave your entry in the comment section below, and I'll pick one winner to feature Tuesday, August 21, complete with a "new" cast photo. To see a list of characters to recast and a photo of the BuzzSugar t-shirt,
