The Results Are In: Recast "Roseanne"

The Results Are In: Recast "Roseanne"

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!

I loved all the lists submitted for this week's recast, especially your picks for Roseanne and Darlene, one of my favorite mother-daughter combos on TV. A couple of you — ailene and Macmeggy — picked Kelly Osbourne for Darlene, and I especially loved sweetheart_450's choice of Alia Shawkat, aka Maeby from "Arrested Development." Comedian Lisa Lampanelli was an unexpected Roseanne pick from Loz2Hi and LesleyP825. And several of you had the brilliant idea of casting Joan Cusack as Jackie.

It was a tough call, but my overall favorite list this week came from CaterpillarGirl! To see her cast list and a new cast photo,

CaterpillarGirl's cast:
Roseanne — Janeane Garofalo
Dan — Jack Black
DJ — Grant Rosenmeyer
Darlene — Michelle Trachtenberg
Becky — Amanda Seyfried
Jackie — Kathy Griffin
