Recast Wings 2008-07-30 15:30:06

Recast Wings 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!

This week, let's recast a show that I watched a lot as a kid: Wings! It's kind of an embarrassing show to admit I was really into because it was totally tame, like something only boring adults might watch as frequently as I did.

I mean, do you remember the show's opener? It's hilariously uncool. But you know what? The two lead guys were cute and that short woman with the Southern accent was sassy, and I just couldn't help but give into their charms!

So, who would you cast to play the brothers Hackett? Both are pilots and run Sandpiper Air on Nantucket Island but that's where the similarities end. Joe Hackett is the older, more mature one while Brian is the flaky ladies man. What about Helen, the attractive and smart woman who runs the lunch counter in the airport terminal?

One of my favorite characters on Wings was Antonio Scarpacci, the taxi driver on the island, originally played by Monk star Tony Shalhoub. Who else could play this romantic Italian character with a heart of gold? And finally let's recast Lowell Mather, originally Thomas Haden Church's role. Lowell is the hilariously dense airport mechanic who often frustrated the Hackett men.

Leave your entry in the comment section below, and I'll pick one winner to feature Tuesday, August 5, complete with a "new" cast photo.

OMG I loved Wings. I am pretty sure that I never got into 'Monk' because Tony Shalhoub will never stop being Antonio for me.

BTW- If we are turning this into a movie I think Shirley McClain for Fay and John Goodman for Roy. (I totally loved this show, too.) :)
