Recast "The Brady Bunch" and Win a Prize!

Recast "The Brady Bunch" and Win a Prize!

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 needs no introduction: I want you to re-envision the deliciously retro sitcom "The Brady Bunch." Yes, this huge cast is a major undertaking, but it should be a highly entertaining one.

What modern actors would you choose to form this beloved TV family today? Leave your entry in the comment section below, and I'll pick one winner to feature Tuesday, May 1, complete with a "new" cast photo. To see a list of characters to recast and a photo of the BuzzSugar t-shirt,

Characters to recast:
Mike Brady (Robert Reed)
Carol Brady (Florence Henderson)
Alice Nelson (Ann B. Davis)
Marcia Brady (Maureen McCormick)
Jan Brady (Eve Plumb)
Cindy Brady (Susan Olsen)
Greg Brady (Barry Williams)
Peter Brady (Christopher Knight)
Bobby Brady (Mike Lookinland)
