The Results Are In: Recast Annie Hall

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!

Wow, this week's recast challenge for Annie Hall prompted tons of awesome entries. I wish I could choose 10 winners — it was nearly impossible to pick just one. I especially loved allenorton's idea of John Cusack as Alvy paired with Zooey Deschanel as Annie. I also got a huge kick out of sfmastiffmom's Stephen Colbert and Tina Fey combo. Some of my favorite Alvy ideas were bart simpson's Creed Bratton from The Office (it's just funny), katie_c's Tony Shahloub and alethe16's Paul Giamatti.

And finally, because it's Super Tuesday, I have to give a special shout-out to janneth for her Hilary-Obama combination (with the genders reversed). That pretty much made my day.

I finally had to make a decision, however, and I went with coolgurl24's recast list! To see who coolgurl24 picked and a new cast photo,


These two are almost exactly the same ages that Woody Allen and Diane Keaton were when Annie Hall came out. Woody was 42, Diane was 31. Rainn Wilson is 42 and Amy Adams is 33.

coolgurl24's cast:
Annie — Amy Adams
Alvy — Rainn Wilson
