Recast the Partridge Family

Recast The Partridge Family 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!

Why The Partridge Family? Because they're doing it anyway so we may as well put our own casting suggestions out there. Even though many of us might not remember the show, the characters are pretty typical, so let's update this family that sings together for a new generation. Did you know that back in the day this show ran as part of ABC's Friday night lineup following The Brady Bunch? I just thought that was interesting.

Who would you cast as the widowed head of the family, Shirley Partridge? What about the family heartthrob, Keith Partridge, originally portrayed by David Cassidy? There's also precocious little brother Danny Partridge, played by a then-tiny Danny Bonaduce, and pretty teenage daughter Laurie Partridge. Finally, there are the littlest Partridges to recast: Tracy and Chris. Oh, and we might as well give Shirley another adult and recast the band manager, Reuben Kincaid.

Leave your entry in the comment section below, and I'll pick one winner to feature Tuesday, October 14, complete with a "new" cast photo. To see a list of characters to recast and a photo of the BuzzSugar t-shirt,
