Recast Results for Speed

The Results Are In: Recast Speed

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!

I'm glad so many of you were as into recasting Speed as I am — it's a fun action movie to think about updating.

A lot of you, like Baluk, thought of Shia Lebeouf to play Officer Jack Traven, which is a good thought as the young actor is making a name for himself in these kinds of fast-paced action roles. And it's hard to argue with CYL's suggestion for the intense Christian Bale to play the lead, too.

As for the spunky Annie, luckiedog came up with Renee Zellweger who probably could have done a good job making that role her own. I liked RosieButterface's idea for Liv Tyler to play Annie too.

In the end I went with the Jack I liked best, as well as a great suggestion for Lt. McMahon: congrats to lilprisci!

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


lilprisci's cast list:
Officer Jack Traven —Ryan Reynolds

Annie Porter — Rachel McAdams
Det. Harry Temple — Ryan Gosling
Lt. "Mac" McMahon — Don Cheadle
