Recast "Bewitched"!

Recast "Bewitched"!

Every Wednesday on BuzzSugar, I post a Recast challenge, where I'll ask you to choose new actors for a classic TV show or movie. This week, I thought it would be fun to take on "Bewitched," the delightfully silly sitcom from the 1960s and 1970s about a good-natured witch named Samantha.

This series had quite the revolving cast over the years: Most famously, the role of Samantha's husband Darrin was first played by Dick York and then by Dick Sargent. "Bewitched" was also recently remade as a pretty bad movie starring Will Ferrell and Nicole Kidman. But if you were casting this sitcom today, who would you choose to fill the principal roles? (No Kidman or Ferrell, please.) Leave your entry us in the comment section, and I'll pick one winner to feature next Tuesday, March 20, complete with a "new" cast photo.

Characters to recast
Samantha Stephens (Elizabeth Montgomery)
Darrin Stephens (Dick York/Dick Sargent)
Endora (Agnes Moorehead)
