The Results Are In: Recast Jerry Maguire

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!

Great minds certainly think alike, as was proven by this week's recast challenge for Jerry Maguire. Many people agreed that the best person to play Rod Tidwell would be Donald Faison (and, while Faison's an excellent choice, I also liked WhiplashGirlchild and jlgb4008's suggestion of Weeds' Romany Malco).

On the other hand, ideas for who should play Jerry Maguire himself were all over the place, from Ryan Reynolds (a popular suggestion) to Christian Bale (ohmondieu) to Jason Dohring (sarahrah).

The ideas for the part of little Ray Boyd were probably the most entertaining, with some of you not attempting to replace the "perfect" Jonathan Lipnicki and many others suggesting the children of high-profile celebrities, like Cruz Beckham. Finally, I really loved Grantz's idea of Emily Blunt in the role of Dorothy Boyd. But I had to choose just one list from the bunch, and this week I went with mishale1's recast list!

To see who mishale1 picked, along with a new cast photo,
