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 know this beloved classic holiday movie was a tough one to recast, so thank you to everyone who embraced the challenge! Nothing beats the original, but there were certainly some fun recast lists submitted this week. I especially loved chancleta's and precious_pets4's non-white recast lists.
I also enjoyed many of the ideas for Mrs. Parker and the Old Man, like leeluvfashion's idea of Elizabeth Perkins as Mrs. Parker and mamaseacat's suggestion of Bernie Mac playing the Old Man. WhiplashGirlchild's ideas of Lisa Kudrow and John Goodman in those roles would also be a lot of fun.
My favorite recast list this week, however, is actually the very first on the list, submitted by kersalli! To see who kersalli picked, along with a new cast photo,
Ralphie — Freddie Highmore
Randy — Jimmy Bennett
Mrs. Parker — Allison Janney
Old Man — Billy Bob Thornton
