Recast Can't Buy Me Love and Win a Prize!

Recast Can't Buy Me Love and Win a Prize!

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!

I'm excited about recasting this one because it's one of my favorite '80s movies of all time, and because the characters are awesome teenage archetypes that will be fun to recast with modern-day young actors. It's the movie that helped make McDreamy a star: Can't Buy Me Love!

Who could replace Patrick Dempsey as Ronald Miller, a high school nerd trying to climb that social ladder to the top? And what about the most beautiful, popular girl in school, Cindy Mancini, whom Ronald bribes to help make him popular?

Let's also recast Cindy's two best friends Barbara and Patty who are baffled by the fact Cindy's hanging out with a nerd. Finally, find a new actor for the role of Ronald's bratty little brother Chuckie Miller, originally played by Seth Green!

Leave your entry in the comment section below, and I'll pick one winner to feature Tuesday, Jan. 20, 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:
Ronald Miller (Patrick Dempsey)
Cindy Mancini (Amanda Peterson)
Chuckie Miller (Seth Green)
Barbara (Tina Caspary)
Patty (Darcy DeMoss)
