Recast Will and Grace 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!

While I liked many things about Will and Grace, I think most of all I liked the well-cast actors who brought to life these wacky characters. But if you had to choose new actors to play Grace, Will, Karen and Jack ("Just Jack!"), who would you pick? Who could do justice to the hilariously lovable foursome?

Leave your entry in the comment section below, and I'll pick one winner to feature Tuesday, February 19, 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:
Will Truman (Eric McCormack)
Grace Adler (Debra Messing)
Karen Walker (Megan Mullally)
Jack McFarland (Sean Hayes)

Will and Grace meets Ugly Betty (only because the chemistry between Jack and Karen are so very similar to Marc and Amanda's. Daniel and Betty's friendship could almost be like Will and Grace's). Will: Eric Mabius Grace: America Ferrera Karen: Becki Newton Jack: Michael Urie

No one can replace Megan Mullally and Sean Hayes! They're perfect for the roles. And I'm not sure if I could stand the Karen voice on anyone else.

I am going for a younger crew -- Grace: Isla Fisher - gotta keep the redhead and she is perfect in the comedy role! Will: Justin Chambers Karen: Zooey Deschanel (she's great with the sarcasm) Jack: Adam Brody
