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!
Recasting The Partridge Family is no easy task. There are so many archetypes to think about, including the likable mom and the teen heartthrob son! I really like Jinx's idea for Chace Crawford to play Keith because he has "swoon" written all over him. I wonder if Chace can sing? I also thought NurseDeAnna had the right idea with Kristen Davis to play Shirley as well as Joe Jonas for Keith. Those two make an adorable mother-son match-up.
Ultimately it was the recast with the most perfect idea for Shirley along with a pretty spot-on Keith and Laurie that I chose as the winner. Congratulations alynn!
