The Results Are In: Recast Saved by the Bell

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!

Oh, how I wish this show were still on TV! But alas, Saved by the Bell lives on only in reruns, on DVD and in my fond memories. Though the original cast was priceless, you all thought of some fantastic new cast lists for this recast challenge. I enjoyed the suggestions put forth for recasting Mr. Belding in particular, from bart simpson's pick of Rainn Wilson and syako's idea of Alec Baldwin to alynn's Kevin Nealon suggestion.

Also, the idea of Whitney from The Hills playing Jessie, as shopper10024 suggested, made me laugh out loud.

Yet my favorite recast list this week comes from mdeezy! To see who mdeezy picked, along with a new cast photo,

mdeezy's cast:
Zach — Chad Michael Murray
Kelly — Megan Fox
Slater — Channing Tatum
Screech — Christopher Mintz-Plasse
Jesse — Haylie Duff
Lisa — Raven Symone
Principal Belding — Steve Carell

This one was tough. lol Nia, "total douche" I agree, but strangely think Chad was a pretty good pick. Its Tatum Channing as Slater I have a hard time with.
