The Results Are In: Recast Will and Grace

Every other 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!


This week's recast challenge for Will and Grace proved that great minds think alike, as many of you suggested similar actors to take on the roles of Will, Grace, Karen and Jack. Amidst all the Michael Uries for Jack and Isla Fischers to play Grace, there were some other interesting suggestions, like runnerjenn827's idea to put Jane Krakowski in Karen's role, and leeluvfashion'sawesome suggestion of Matthew Rhys playing Will.

I loved mamaseacat's Ugly Betty-inspired cast list, and sorano916's idea of Idina Menzel playing Grace is one of my favorites from this challenge. It was a tough task deciding on just one recast list, but in the end I chose hil34 as this week's winner. Congratulations, hil34! To see who she cast, along with a new cast photo, read more.
