Recast Results, Meet the Parents

Results Are In: Recast Meet the Parents

Every other 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!

Last week I asked you all to brainstorm some new faces for the Ben Stiller hit, Meet the Parents. I had fun reading all the ideas put forth for Gaylord "Greg" Focker including krae85's suggestion of Jack Black. I'm also glad eegle1234 thought of Sarah Michelle Gellar to play Pam, as I think that's such a great idea.

To me, the movie rests on just how intimidating (yet funny) the actor playing Jack Byrnes can be. Amanda6783's idea for Bruce Willis is a really good one, as is lemuse20's suggestion of Christopher Walken. Both actors totally get how to be intimidating and have great comedic timing.

But it was sundew's idea for Jack that was the hardest to resist. Congrats sundew!

To see who sundew chose, along with a new cast photo,

sundew's cast list:
Gaylord "Greg" Focker — Jason Segel
Pam Byrnes — Elizabeth Banks
Jack Byrnes — Alec Baldwin
Dina Byrnes — Dianne Wiest
Kevin Rawley — Ed Helms
