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!
Thanks for tossing in your new cast ideas for that beloved '90s sitcom, Boy Meets World last week. It was a very informative trip down young Hollywood lane for me and I had several moments that went something like, "Oh so that's who that kid is" as I matched your suggestions to faces. I totally hear you cordata: Thinking of actors under 18 is challenging!
A few of you, including ShePirate2008 and lellybear, thought Shia Labeouf would make a great Cory and I agree that once upon a time he was an excellent awkward teen. But alas, he's a bit older now and probably "too cool" for the role. I also thought savilerow085's suggestion that Alexandar Gould from Weeds is a great idea for Cory.
I got a kick out of all the Topangas including leeluvfashion's idea for Willa Holland (remember her from The O.C.?) and chasingjamie's suggestion for Miriam McDonald (even though she changed her mind to Brittany Snow later).
In the end, it was a great young cast and a truly spot-on Mr. Feeny that won this week's challenge: congrats to kea718!
To see who she chose, along with a new cast photo,
