Every other 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 we travel back to one of the sitcoms that is just so '90s: Boy Meets World! When this was on the air, I may have been a little too cool for school to admit that it was a guilty pleasure of mine. But it was just so hard to resist another Savage boy!
If you could cast the show today, who would you pick to play Cory Matthews (Ben Savage), the funny and neurotic teenager with a dry sense of humor?
Who could play the vaguely rebellious Shawn (Rider Strong), Cory's best friend, despite the fact that they are opposites in many ways? What about Cory's charming older brother Eric (Will Friedle) who had a way with the ladies? And don't forget the love of Cory's life, Topanga (best TV name ever), originally played by Danielle Fishel.
We should also recast Mr. Feeny (William Daniels) the boys' neighbor, teacher, principal (and later college professor — ha!) while we're at it, and Cory's parents as well, Alan and Amy Matthews.
Leave your entry in the comment section below, and I'll pick one winner to feature Tuesday, July 8, complete with a "new" cast photo.
