Recast Pretty Woman 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!

I've memorized nearly every line from this 1990 hooker-with-a-heart-of-gold story, so it's hard to imagine other people bringing these roles to life. But I'd love to hear some suggestions!

If you could recast Pretty Woman with new actors today, who would you pick to play the sassy Vivian? What about Vivian's dashing john, Edward? Let's also find new actors to play Edward's sleazy lawyer Philip and Vivian's loyal girlfriend Kit. Finally, who could play Bernard, the hotel manager who helps Vivian become more "ladylike"?

Leave your entry in the comment section below, and I'll pick one winner to feature Tuesday, October 30, 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:
Vivian (Julia Roberts)
Edward (Richard Gere)
Kit (Laura San Giacomo)
Philip (Jason Alexander)
Bernard (Hector Elizondo)

(I am late, but this looks like fun!) I think Vivian should be a lesser known star, like Julia was when she was cast. I think it would be more exciting to see this person "discover" new parts of herself if we don't already think of her as a huge movie star. Vivan - Anna Paquin Edward - Clive Owen Kit - Alicia Keys (it would be fun to see her play sassy) Philip - Kyle Maclaclan Bernard - Victor Garber (so debonaire!)
