Recast Results for The Partridge Family

The Results Are In: Recast The Partridge Family

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.

As for the other kids mommapoppins had a great idea to cast Emma Roberts as Laurie and it's hard to go wrong with Amethyst's suggestion for Abigail Breslin to play young Tracy.

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!

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

Demi Lovato? Don't they have to be able to sing to be a partridge? Not shriek I mean?

I thought of Joe Jonas for Keith as well, but it was so hard coming up with actors to play the younger kids!
