The Results Are In: Recast Golden Girls

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!

While YumSugar's idea of an all-Sugar recast list for the Golden Girls is pretty fantastic, I had to go with real live actresses for this week's recast winner. There were many other ideas that I loved as well, though, from mamaseacat's Sex and the City recast to Allie1138's hilarious all-supermodel list.

I also liked the idea of having a Who's the Boss? reunion with Judith Light playing Dorothy and Katherine Helmond playing Sophia, as yipon suggested. biochemlovely and KristenDaBomb's idea of Blythe Danner as Rose is spot-on, though I would love to see Ellen Burstyn play Rose as well, like ChrissyBaby suggested. Finally, I was delighted to see Lena Olin on alynn's list to play Blanche. With a sweet Southern accent, Sidney Bristow's mom would make a great Blanche!

Overall, however, my favorite list this week comes from kateaustin456! To see who kateaustin456 picked along with a new cast photo,

kateaustin456's list:
Dorothy Petrillo Zbornak — Glenn Close
Rose Nylund — Melanie Griffith
Blanche Devereaux — Jane Fonda
Sophia Petrillo — Estelle Harris

I don't think Melanie Griffith would like to know this. She'd surely run out for another face lift. Ha.
