Recast Charles in Charge

The Results Are In: Recast Charles in Charge

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!

Thanks everyone for chipping in your ideas about a new cast for Charles in Charge! I really liked all your hunky ideas for who could play Charles, including Whip's idea for Jake Gyllenhaal and leeluvfashion's suggestion of Penn Badgley. Those are some yummy nannies!

I also liked daisydidi's idea of Dakota Fanning for one of the Powell girls and got a kick out of alethe16's idea for William H. Macy as Mr. Powell.

But it was one commenter's use of the cast of a very funny movie franchise — plus really great look-alike choices for the Powell kids— that won the challenge. Congrats to azulskies!

To see who azulskies chose, along with a new cast photo,


azulskies's cast list:
Charles — John Cho
Mr. Walter Powell — James Eckhouse
Mrs. Ellen Powell — Debra Messing
Jamie Powell — Emma Stone
Sarah Powell — Emma Roberts
Adam Powell — Alexander Gould
Lillian — Catherine Hicks
Buddy Lembeck — Kal Penn
