The Results Are In: Recast "Sex and the City"

The Results Are In: Recast "Sex and the City"

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 the most exciting recast ever, by far! It was so much fun reading through over 100 comments, though this also made it the most difficult recast decision to make. There were so many fantastic recast lists, but I did have to choose just one.

However, almost all of the lists submitted included actors who are younger than the ones from the original cast when "SATC" first started. Thus, the winning recast list does include younger actors, though, with a couple exceptions, they're mostly younger by just a few years.

As for individual castings that I loved, some of my favorites included casting Tina Fey as Miranda, Will Smith as Mr. Big and Elizabeth Banks as Carrie, though I was impressed with many of the other ideas as well. My personal favorite, however comes from cherryblossom! To see who cherryblossom picked, along with a new cast photo,

cherryblossom's cast:
Carrie — Rachel McAdams
Miranda — Claire Danes
Samantha — Rebecca Romijin
Charlotte — Anne Hathaway
Mr. Big — Pierce Brosnan
Steve — Carmine Giovinazzo
Harry — Jack Black
Smith — Chad Michael Murray

That cast would really work and would make for a very entaining mix. Way to go, Cherryblossom!

Also, Rachel, Rebecca and Claire look 29 tops. Anne looks 25 and that's stretching it a bit. Also, Claire can not play a plain Jane. Whenever they try casting a cute girl, even after fugging her up a bit, it's always so artificial. I would prefer Rachel McAdams as Carrie though.

You do realize that their age is an important part of the show, don't you? And that Chad Michael Murray is not hot?

I like the choices -- especially PB for Mr. Big and RR for Samantha. I think though that Rachel McAdams is way too much of a classic beauty to play a quirky, indie-chic style maven/sex columnist like Carrie Bradshaw. I think the part is better suited to someone with offbeat looks and who seems naturally funny. I was thinking Amanda Peet for that role.

i read the headline for this and was like "nobody could recast that show!" but i have to say, great job! i love all of the choices, especially the women!

Good choices...trying to picture McAdams...not sure...but it is hard to think of ANYONE but SJP playing Carrie. Don't like Pierce as Mr.Big or the guy for Steve. Picture Steve Carell as Steve... Picture Alec Baldwin as Mr.Big...
