Recast Results: "Bewitched"


For this week's Recast challenge, I asked you to choose a new cast for the old television series "Bewitched" — but no Will Ferrells or Nicole Kidmans allowed. You all came up with some interesting casting decisions; I especially liked WhiplashGirlchild's idea to use real-life married couple Sarah Jessica Parker and Matthew Broderick along with "Everybody Loves Raymond" mom Doris Roberts.

While a little on the younger side, I loved Controlledspin's pick of Sarah Chalke for Samantha, and many of you chose Jim Carrey for Darrin, which seems perfect since Carrey so closely resembles Dick York. And the part of me that grew up on "Who's the Boss" was delighted by Katherine Helmond (Mona) as Endora, chosen by Yiddidea.

Yet the best overall cast came from kendallina! To see who she picked and the new cast photo,

kendallina's cast:
Samantha: Renee Zellweger
Darrin: Steve Carell
Endora: Shirley MacLaine (I know she was in the movie, but she's just so darn perfect for this role!)
