Recast Special Oscar Edition: Brokeback Mountain

Every Wednesday on BuzzSugar, I'll post a Recast challenge, where I'll ask you to recast a classic TV show or movie. For this week's special Oscar edition, I decided to have you guys recast Brokeback Mountain, the movie that I think should have won Best Picture last year. (It lost to Crash, though Ang Lee did take home the directing prize.)

I was pretty happy with the casting of this movie, and Heath Ledger in particular was excellent. But if you had to recast the film with all new actors, who would you chose for the hunky cowboy and tragic wife roles? Leave your entry us in the comment section below, and I'll pick one winner to feature next Tuesday, Jan. 30, complete with a "new" cast photo.

Characters to recast:
Ennis Del Mar (Heath Ledger)
Jack Twist (Jake Gyllenhaal)
Alma (Michelle Williams)
Lureen Newsome (Anne Hathaway)

This movie was JUST made! It's too early to recast if you ask me. Both lead actors were phenomenal.

Actually, I thought also Camilla Belle for Lureen. She was good in 'The Ballad of Jack and Rose' and she'd make a good Lureen too :-)
