Wow, last week's Recast for Gone With the Wind proved both challenging and entertaining. It seems the hardest character to recast was Miss Scarlett O'Hara with her fiery and impetuous — yet needy — nature. I think perhaps the closest we might come is Reese Witherspoon, if she channeled some of her stubborn Election character and added a Southern touch.
I was smitten by UnaBellaSorpresa's picks for Ashley and Melanie: Orlando Bloom and Claire Danes, who was great as the sweet, sickly girl in Little Women. Yet I have to say that my favorite cast overall came from Intern07: Clive Owen would make an impeccable Rhett Butler, while S. Epatha Merkerson ("Law & Order") would add a modern edge to Mammy's sass. Congratulations, Intern07! To see her picks and the "new" cast photos,
Scarlett O'Hara - Reese Witherspoon
Rhett Butler - Clive Owen
Mammy - S. Epatha Merkerson
Melanie Hamilton - Michelle Williams
Ashley Wilkes - Jude Law
