The Results Are In: Recast Big

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!

I could watch Big ten times over and never get sick of it. If it had to be recast today, though, I certainly wouldn't mind watching many of the casts you all submitted. In particular, I liked the lists that added some racial diversity to the cast, like bluebutterfly's list that includes all black actors, as well as some of the ideas for MacMillan's role, such as lilpoofkin's idea of Bernie Mac and Amers230's pick of Morgan Freeman.

I also loved the idea of casting Tom Hanks' own son, Colin, in the role he made so memorable, as suggested by lilpoofkin (he's even around the same age as Tom Hanks was when Big was made!), and I enjoyed blondie829's idea to cast Zachary Levi (of the upcoming show "Chuck").

Finally, the ideas for the role of Susan were really interesting, like the popular choice of Katherine Heigl, as well as LikeATiger29's pick of Maggie Gyllenhaal, and Livience's suggestion of Anne Hathaway.

Overall, though, my favorite list this week comes from faerymagick15! To see who faerymagick15 cast, along with a new cast photo,

faerymagick15's cast:
Josh — Tom Everett Scott
Young Josh — Cameron Bright
Susan — Kate Walsh
MacMillan — James Caan
Billy — Spencer Breslin
