The Results Are In: Recast Pretty In Pink

Many of the recast lists this week featured actors who seem way too old to play the high school kids in Pretty in Pink. Yet when I took a look at how old the original cast was, most of them had been out of high school (and college) for years already; James Spader, for instance, was 26. Thus, I went with a recast list full of actors who at least look like they could be in high school... more or less.

It seems like the most fun character to recast was the quirky Iona. I could easily see any number of funny women playing that awesome role, from WhiplashGirlchild and aras8218's pick of Lisa Kudrow to lem0n and conlaw2's Zooey Deschanel to Parker Posey, chosen by brazilnut and lslybnks. I also liked joytothehurled's idea of Amy Adams for Andie. My favorite complete list, however, is from LaLaLaurie06. To see who she picked, and the new cast photo,

LaLaLaurie06's Cast
Andie: Amber Tamblyn
Duckie: Topher Grace
Blaine: Jake Gyllenhaal
Steff: Ryan Phillippe
Iona: Lauren Graham

Congratulations, LaLaLaurie06!
