Reminder: Recast "The Cosby Show"

Reminder: Recast "The Cosby Show"

For this week's Recast challenge, I decided to tackle a sitcom that many of us grew up watching obsessively: "The Cosby Show."

This series, which debuted in 1984, introduced a multitude of characters over its 8-year run: Cockroach, baby Olivia, cousin Pam, and on and on. But let's just recast the original core members of the Huxtable family, from Bill Cosby's classic grumpy Cliff all the way down to spunky (and slightly annoying) Rudy.

Leave your entry us in the comment section below, and I'll pick one winner to feature next Tuesday, March 7, complete with a "new" cast photo.

Characters to recast:
Dr. Cliff Huxtable (Bill Cosby)
Clair Huxtable (Phylicia Rashad)
Sondra (Sabrina Le Beauf)
Denise (Lisa Bonet)
Theo (Malcolm-Jamal Warner)
Vanessa (Tempestt Bledsoe)
Rudy (Keshia Knight Pulliam)

Keeping the whole thing in the mid-1980s, casting actors who would have been close to the correct age circa 1985... THE CHUNGS Pat Morita as Cliff Emily Kuroda (Mrs. Kim from Gilmore Girls) as Claire Margaret Cho as Denise (Margaret would be discovered doing comedy in SF, but would be fired before the second season for being "difficult." The role would then be recast with either Kelly Hu or Tamlyn Tomita...) Jonathan Ke Quan - that kid from Goonies - as Theo Irene Ng (aka Shelby Woo) - as Vanessa ...and some adorable Asian moppet as Rudy
