The Results Are In: (Re)cast The Jetsons!

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!

As I mentioned last week, Robert Rodriguez is in talks to shoot a live-action movie version of "The Jetsons." So, as a twist on the usual recast challenge, I asked you to come up with a cast for Rodriguez's project. Some of my favorite picks were your ideas for George and Rosy. I love the idea of Steve Martin as George, like several of you suggested, though jadenirvana's pick of Jason Bateman hit on my soft spot for the former "Arrested Development" star.

And as for Rosy, I love that dropstar chose Joan Rivers, LilPeaPod picked Rosie O'Donnell and Linda McP put down Ellen Degeneres. Nicely done, all!

Overall, however, my favorite cast list comes from Elsinore. Congratulations, Elsinore! To see who Elsinore picked as well as a lineup of the cast,

Elsinore's cast:
George: Stephen Colbert
Jane: Marcia Cross
Judy: Kristin Bell
Elroy: Dylan or Cole Sprouse
Rosy: Megan Mullally

And, yes, I agree with bugness... Danny Devito seriously resembles Mr. Spacely.

Buzz, these recasts are a great conversation starter for parties or awkward silences. I always bust out with a, "hey how would you recast the Jetsons?" when I don't know what to say.

Awesome job, Elsinore! Wouldn't a sassy Rosy be great? One of the boys from Suite Life would be perfect for Elroy, too. I hope Robert is reading!

If this movie gets shot, I'm not sure it's going to be great because it's such a classic cartoon. But I think that it would be cool to see RR's take on it, and to see how the futuristic setting comes to life, since we don't live like the Jetson's yet.

I love Megan Mullally for Rosie. All great choices, but I'm still stuck on Jane...I just don't see Marcia Cross as her. Acting as her yes, but not if we're going for similar looks.
