Recast While You Were Sleeping

Recast While You Were Sleeping 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!

I was thinking today that one of my favorite rom-coms set around Christmastime, While You Were Sleeping, would make for a fun recast challenge. Sandra Bullock is super adorable in this movie and it's hard to think of replacing her, but let's give it a whirl anyway.

So which headstrong and endearing actress would you cast as Lucy (Bullock), the a lonely fare collector on the Chicago "L"? What dreamy actor could you imagine in the role of Peter Callaghan (played by Peter Gallagher), the commuter whom Lucy admires from afar (well, and eventually up close)? And what about Peter's more rugged brother, Jack (Bill Pullman), with whom Lucy ends up falling in love?

Then there's the quirky Callaghan family, including Peter and Jack's godfather Saul (Jack Warden), the boys' father Ox (Peter Boyle), and their mother Midge (Micole Mercurio). Oh, and I think we ought to recast Lucy's caring (if not a little slimy) neighbor Joe (Michael Rispoli).

Leave your entry in the comment section below, and I'll pick one winner to feature Tuesday, Dec. 23, complete with a "new" cast photo. To see a list of characters to recast and a photo of the BuzzSugar t-shirt,

Lucy Ellenore Moderatz (Sandra Bullock)
Peter Callaghan (Peter Gallagher)

I'm not going to recast it, I just wanted to thank you for reminding me of this movie! I used to love it, but I'd completely forgotten it existed. Time to rent it, I think.
