The Results Are In: Recast "Cheers"

The Results Are In: Recast "Cheers"

For last week's Recast challenge, I asked you guys to tackle the long-running and brilliantly enduring sitcom "Cheers." The actors who played these colorful, oddly familiar characters really helped make the show what it was, but BuzzSugar readers came up with some fitting replacements who could honor the show's legacy.

The versatile Hugh Laurie surfaced twice: once as Frasier on Staceygirl's list and again when BeanBagChair picked him to play Cliff. I also really loved Staceygirl's choices of Janeane Garafalo for Carla and Paul Giamatti as Norm. But the No. 1 Recast spot this week goes to ChiTownEm. I particularly love her choice for Sam Malone, but does Chris Klein give anyone else the heebie-jeebies? To see her picks and the "new" cast photo,

Sam — Vince Vaughn
Diane — Reese Witherspoon

Norm — Kevin Smith

Good choices. Although I'd never think of Cohen for Frasier. ------------------------------------------------------ Imagination is more important than knowledge. Knowledge is limited. — Albert Einstein

I like all those picks except Chris Klein. He could never fill Woody's shoes. Vince Vaughn and Kevin Smith are right on!
