Recast Steel Magnolias!


Ever wonder what a movie or TV show would be like if you could be the casting director? Well, every Wednesday on BuzzSugar, I'll be posting a Recast challenge, where I'll ask you to recast a classic TV show or movie for these modern times.

This week's challenge: the irresistible Southern chick-flick, Steel Magnolias. I'll be the first to admit that this movie was very well cast the first time around — with the exception, in my opinion, of Julia Roberts. But it's been almost 20 years since Steel Magnolias came out, so who could fill these great female roles today? Leave your entry us in the comment section below, and I'll pick one winner to feature next Tuesday, Jan. 16, complete with a "new" cast photo.

Characters to recast:
M'Lynn (Sally Field)
Truvy (Dolly Parton)
Ouiser (Shirley MacLaine)
Annelle (Darryl Hannah)
Clairee (Olympia Dukakis)
Shelby (Julia Roberts)
