The Results Are In: Recast Fast Times at Ridgemont High

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!

Fast Times at Ridgemont High has some fantastic characters, which makes it super fun to recast. This week's recast lists were great — from WhiplashGirlchild's ideas of Joseph Gordon-Levitt playing Brad and Hugh Laurie playing Mr. Hand, to hanako66's suggestion of Topher Grace for the part of the slimy Mike. I also thought Seth Rogen would make a great Brad, as was suggested by several people. Tnkrbelli included photos with her recast list, which was very cool. I especially liked her idea of Emile Hirsch playing Jeff Spicoli. He could easily pull off that dazed thing.

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

joielin's cast:
Stacy — Alison Lohman
Linda — Megan Fox
Mark/"Rat" — Michael Cera
Mike — Milo Ventimiglia
Brad — Ben Savage
Mr. Hand — Wallace Shawn
Spicoli — Shia LaBeouf

No doubt Penn was awesome (totally awesome) as Spicoli, but I think Cougar Bait would give the part a good go! :) "Learning about Cuba, and having some food" :rotfl:

I can't imagine anyone pulling off Spicoli like Sean Penn. He was amazing.
