Recast Wings

The Results Are In: Recast Wings

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!

I'm so relieved to know I wasn't alone in my nerd-love for Wings and you all came up with some great new casts for this show I secretly loved for years. I could tell you guys were having fun thinking up which actors could look like brothers. alynn went the logical route and cast real-life brothers Luke and Owen Wilson. I also thought leeluvfashion was right on with her casting of Michael Vartan and Paul Walker as brothers — they totally look like they could have the same DNA.

As for Helen, I liked fatatiecat07's idea for Reese Witherspoon, as she completely embodies the spunky spirit of that character. daisydidi's idea for Michael Imperioli to play Antonio Scarpacci is awesome, though after so many years on the Sopranos I still see him as more scary than snuggly.

In the end, I just had to choose the recast with the most adorable combo of two small-screen actors as the main brothers. Congrats to Chibbie!

To see who Chibbie chose, along with a new cast photo,


Chibbie's cast list:
Joe Hackett — Lee Pace
Brian Hackett — John Krasinski
Helen Chappel — Kristen Bell
Antonio Scarpacci — Naveen Andrews
Lowell Mather — TJ Miller

I think it was spot on! Congratulations Chibbie. . . But having been a huge wings fan, both originally and in syndication, I think Kristen Bell was great casting, but she's like too young. That's my only quibble. . . oh, and I <3 Lee Pace & John Krasinski !!!! . . (My 2 fav shows !!!)
