Recast Pretty in Pink

Every Wednesday on BuzzSugar, I post a Recast challenge, where I'll ask you to choose new actors for a classic TV show or movie. This week, I thought I'd take a break from all the cinema classics and beloved sitcoms we've been recasting lately and go back to the '80s with that irresistible rich/poor teen dramedy, Pretty in Pink.

Even today, this Molly Ringwald movie really holds up, thanks to a killer soundtrack, curious wardrobe choices, and great performances. If you were recasting it today, which actors would be ideal? Leave your entry us in the comment section, and I'll pick one winner to feature next Tuesday, March 13, complete with a "new" cast photo.

Characters to recast
Andie (Molly Ringwald)
Blaine (Andrew McCarthy)
Duckie (Jon Cryer)
Steff (James Spader)
Iona (Annie Potts)

Yah! Fun! I love this game! Andie: Bryce Dallas Howard (who ever plays Andie and follows in Molly Ringwald's steps should be a real red head) Blaine: Adrian Grenier (from Entourage) Duckie: Topher Grace (from That 70's Show) Steff: Ian Somerhalder (from Lost) Iona: Juliette Lewis (she's so great at quirky characters)
