The Results Are In: Recast Back to the Future

Every 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's recast challenge was a fond favorite for many of you, so I was delighted to see how thoughtful the recast lists were! Some of my favorite ideas include casting Frankie Muniz or Michael Cera as Marty McFly, as both actors have that youthful earnestness.

I also enjoyed many of the suggestions submitted for the character of Doc Brown, such as Steve Buscemi, and emei47's idea of Robert Downey Jr. Finally, selecting who should play the villainous Biff Tannen seemed to be a fun challenge for some of you, and I especially liked BunGirl's pick of Owen Wilson. BunGirl also posted her own cast photo, which I thought was awesome.
However, my favorite recast list this week comes from CocoChic! She wondered if we were casting these characters as teenagers or as adults. Because the actors in the original cast were in their 20s, I went with Coco's younger cast submission. To see who CocoChic picked along some new cast pictures,

CocoChic's cast:
Marty McFly — Shia LaBeouf
Doc — Johnny Depp
Lorraine McFly — Rachel McAdams
George McFly — Adam Brody
Biff Tannen — Chris Carmack
