Recast "My So-Called Life" and Win a Prize!

Recast "My So-Called Life" 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!

"My So-Called Life" may have enjoyed just a short life span on ABC, but during that time I felt like someone finally understood me and that someone was Angela Chase. I could not get enough of Angela's angst and hip music collection, her reckless friend Rayanne, her gay boyfriend Rickie, the goody-goody Sharon, and the pitiably awkward Brian Krakow. And, of course, Jordan Catalano, who was the perfect crush — aloof to the point of being infuriating... yet irresistible.

If you could recast this show today with modern actors, who would you pick?

Leave your entry in the comment section below, and I'll pick one winner to feature Tuesday, June 12, 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:
Angela Chase (Claire Danes)
Rickie (Wilson Cruz)
Rayanne Graff (A.J. Langer)
Brian Krakow (Devon Gummersall)
Jordan Catalano (Jared Leto)
Sharon Cherski (Devon Odessa)

Leaving off Angela's parents for this recast, for brevity's sake.
