Recast Clueless 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!

Ah, Clueless. The rich kids' angst, the high school caste system, the pretty girl who's actually really smart, the weird step-sibling romance... what's not to love? Alicia Silverstone, Donald Faison, Brittany Murphy, and the others were truly priceless in their roles, but who would you cast in their parts today, 12 years later?

Leave your entry in the comment section below, and I'll pick one winner to feature Tuesday, May 8, 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:
Cher Horowitz (Alicia Silverstone)
Dionne (Stacey Dash)
Murray (Donald Faison)
Tai (Brittany Murphy)
Josh (Paul Rudd)
Mel Horowitz (Dan Hedaya)
