Recast It's a Wonderful Life!

Recast It's a Wonderful Life!

Ever wonder what a movie or TV show would be like if you could be the casting director? Well, now's your chance. Every Wednesday on BuzzSugar, we'll be posting a Recast challenge, where we'll ask you to recast a classic TV show or movie for these modern times.

This week's special holiday challenge: the 1946 Christmas tale It's a Wonderful Life. Who could stand in for Jimmy Stewart as George Bailey? Could anyone match Lionel Barrymore's scowl as the hard-hearted Mr. Potter? Which actress could replace Donna Reed as Mary Bailey?

Leave your entry us in the comment section below, and I'll pick one winner to feature next Tuesday, Dec. 26, complete with a "new" cast photo.

Characters to recast:
George Bailey
Mary Bailey
Mr. Potter
Clarence the Angel

To be honest, I hope this movie is never officially recast or remade. I love the original too much.
