Every Wednesday on BuzzSugar, I post a Recast challenge, where I ask you to choose new actors for a classic TV show or movie. Starting this week, we're sweetening the pot: From now on, the reader who submits the best cast will win a BuzzSugar t-shirt!
I've been thinking a lot lately about the 1954 Hitchcock movie Rear Window, so I thought I'd see what you guys can come up with for this one. Blending nail-biting thriller with a romance between two beautiful people, Rear Window shows what happens when "Jeff" Jeffries, a freelance photographer with a broken leg, becomes obsessed with spying on his neighbors. Through Jeffries' telephoto lens, the photog and his well-dressed girlfriend (played by Grace Kelly) become convinced that Lars Thorwald across the way has murdered his wife.
If you were recasting this stellar movie for the modern age, who would you choose in the main roles? Leave your entry in the comment section by end of day TODAY, and I'll pick one winner to feature Tuesday, April 3, 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:
L. B. "Jeff" Jefferies (Jimmy Stewart)
Lisa Carol Fremont (Grace Kelly)
