Recast Three's Company!

Recast Three's Company!

Ever wonder what a movie or TV show would be like if you could be the casting director? Well, now's your chance. 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 1970s TV comedy "Three's Company." Who could fill John Ritter's shoes as Jack Tripper? Who would you cast now as ditzy blonde Chrissy Snow or sassy brunette Janet Wood? Leave your entry us in the comment section below, and I'll pick one winner to feature next Tuesday, Jan. 9, complete with a "new" cast photo.

Characters to recast:
Jack Tripper
Janet Wood
Chrissy Snow

So- who ended up with the picks for this recast? Am I silly- I don't see the follow up. Help?

Those 3 picks came to me surprisingly easily, Sami...I could totally see Selma Blair staring Kellie Pickler down when she makes some airhead comment...and then Tom Cavanaugh grinning as he delivers some well crafted monologue/commentary on the whole shebang. My first instinct was Jessica Simpson for Chrissy, but the truth is that I really dislike her and she annoys me...and Chrissy's character was stupid but endearing. Someone who is unlikable could never play Chrissy.

I do like Kellie Pickler for Crissy, good choice. Not as obvious as Jessica.

Interesting, I intentionally didn't read the other comments before posting mine. Seems we are mostly all on the same page!

Jack Tripper: I'd love to see John Ritter's son, Jason Ritter in the role. He seems to have the same goofy charm. Janet Wood: This is a tough one, she has gotta be intelligent and have an understated sex appeal as a balance to Crissy's more obvious, uh, charms. My pick is Selma Blair, but I'd liker he to gain a few pounds. Chrissy Snow: I bet everyone is saying this, but it has to be Jessica Simpson. Crissy's gotta be a ditzy blonde bombshell, and Jessica definetly embidies all those qualities. All three seem to be in about the same age group.

Yes RCL! Totally agree with Selma Blair for Janet Wood and I couldn't think of her name. Then I'd pick Ashlee Simpson for Chrissy. Charlie Sheen could do Jack Tripper if he weren't so old... and such a jerk!

I got flagged, so who knows if my original post will show up or not.. Jack - Ashton Kutcher (great with physical comedy) Janet - Ginnifer Goodwin (witty and sarcastic, and a great actress) Chrissy - Tara Reid (plays the ditz well, see Josie and The Pussycats)

Jack - Ashton Kutcher (he would be great with the physical comedy) Janet - Ginnifer Goodwin (she's witty and strong) Chrissy - Tara Reid (is actually good at playing the ditz - anyone see Josie and The Pussycats?)

Jack Tripper - Zach Braff Janet Wood - Leah Remini Chrissy Snow - Jessica Simpson (I know there is the age difference between the other two, but she has the right sass and attitude.)

OOps, I meant that Jack Tripper WAS John Ritter *----------------------------------------------------* \m/(-_O) RAWWWWWWWWWWWK!!

Jack Tripper- Jason Ritter, I think that his late father passed on some good genes to him and lets face it John Ritter WAS Jack Tripper, he made Jack into a character all generations could easily recognize. Chrissy Snow-Anna Faris (actress from Scary Movie and Just Friends)...She's played the airhead blonde before and I admit that I giggled a little. I know Jessica Simpson would be a dead ringer, but imagine watching her on TV. Didn't we endure enough through Newlyweds? Janet Wood- Mila Kunis... don't ask, but I think that Mila can definitely pull that 70s esque look that Three's Company was. I mean she did pull of That 70's Show pretty well. *----------------------------------------------------* \m/(-_O) RAWWWWWWWWWWWK!!

Haha Yeah Tara Reid was my first choice for Chrissy too. Shannon Dorhety would make a great Janet Wood. She'd add some competitive b**tchiness. Plus when Shannon Dorhety attempts to play comedic rolls, it's fabulously ridiculous. Jack Tripper would have to be Flavor Flav. since he has so much experience living with more than one woman.

Ooh, Chestica is a good call for Chrissy, except that I hate her so I'm sticking with the new improved Tara for now.

I agree John Ritter is irreplacable...but if I had to try, I'd pick Dax Shepard (just for this character, though). Ms. Christmas Snow could only be played by the equally ditzy Jessica Simpson. I don't know for Janet.
