Recast Suddenly Susan

Recast Suddenly Susan and Win a Prize!

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!

Do you remember that other TV show starring Brooke Shields as a high-powered career woman? It was Suddenly Susan and it's the recast challenge for this week. The sitcom was on NBC from 1996 to 2000 and followed a fictitious magazine called The Gate, headquartered in my lovely town, San Francisco.

So, who could replace the stunning Ms. Shields as Susan Keane, a woman who writes a column about being single after leaving her wealthy fiance at the alter? Her boss is her ex-finance's pushy brother, Jack (originally played by Judd Nelson), and let's also recast some of Susan's coworkers, including the hilariously droll restaurant critic Vicki (Kathy Griffin) and photographer Luis (Nestor Carbonell, now Richard "Totally Not Wearing Eyeliner" Alpert on Lost!). Finally, who would you cast as Susan's grandmother Nana (Barbara Barrie), in whom she confides?

Leave your entry in the comment section below, and I'll pick one winner to feature Tuesday, Feb. 3, complete with a "new" cast photo. To see a list of characters to recast and a photo of the BuzzSugar t-shirt,

Characters to recast:
Susan Keane (Brooke Shields)
Jack Richmond (Judd Nelson)
Vicki Groener (Kathy Griffin)
Luis Rivera (Nestor Carbonell)
Nana (Barbara Barrie)

Why aren't you recasting Tod? Is it just because that actor committed suicide before the show finished? Tod was a pretty big character. Nestor Carbonell's character always called him "Toad."
