The Results Are In: Recast Rear Window

From now on, the reader who wins the Recast challenge each week will win a BuzzSugar t-shirt! And last week, I asked you all to consider a new cast for Rear Window, the 1954 Hitchcock movie starring Jimmy Stewart as a freelance photographer who becomes suspicious of his neighbors.

I agree with Sweet Adeline and So Naive 00 that Clive Owen would be great in the Jimmy Stewart role. I also liked Adeline's choices of Don Cheadle as Det. Doyle and Kate Winslet in the Grace Kelly role. But the best cast list came from Lisara, whose choices were both safe and totally spot-on; I absolutely love who she has playing the neighbor, Lars Thorwald.

So, congratuations, Lisara: You win a t-shirt! To everyone else: We'll be posting another Recast challenge (and another chance to win a t-shirt) tomorrow. To see the winning entry and the "new" cast photo,

Lisara's Rear Window cast:

L. B. "Jeff" Jefferies: George Clooney
Lisa Carol Fremont: Gwyneth Paltrow
Lars Thorwald: Liam Neeson
Detective Thomas J. Doyle: Matt Damon
