The Results Are In: Recast Karate Kid

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!

This week's recast challenge was a tough one, especially when it came to casting the wise old Mr. Miyagi. I loved the idea of casting George Takei, as suggested by lem0n and sarap 007. I also liked some of the picks for the part of Ali, such as SU3's Mandy Moore and sasha9000's Ginnifer Goodwin. But overall I was totally wowed by WhiplashGirlchild's recast list, so she is the winner of this week's challenge!

To see who WhiplashGirlchild picked and a new cast photo,

WhiplashGirlchild's list:

Mr. Miyagi: Togo Igawa
Daniel LaRusso: Adam Brody
Ali Mills: Kristen Bell
Johnny Lawrence: Chad Michael Murray
