The Results Are In: Recast Steel Magnolias


For last week's Recast challenge, I had BuzzSugar readers pursue a perfect new cast for the irresistible Southern chick-flick, Steel Magnolias. In my opinion, this was one of the toughest Recasts to date, so I was astounded by how many great submissions came in.

I loved RCLdesigngirl's choice of Amy Adams to play Shelby, and her casting of Meryl Streep as Clairee was echoed by several other users, including Erinnoelle and lslybnks. But the best overall Recast came from Pinkrabbit, who really nailed every role, particularly Stockard Channing as M'Lynn. Congrats, Pinkrabbit! Here are her picks.

M'Lynn — Stockard Channing
Shelby — Reese Witherspoon
Truvy — Ashley Judd
Ouiser — Carrie Fisher
Annelle — Liv Tyler
Clairee — Catherine O'Hara
