The Results Are In: Recast Boy Meets World

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!

Thanks for tossing in your new cast ideas for that beloved '90s sitcom, Boy Meets World last week. It was a very informative trip down young Hollywood lane for me and I had several moments that went something like, "Oh so that's who that kid is" as I matched your suggestions to faces. I totally hear you cordata: Thinking of actors under 18 is challenging!

A few of you, including ShePirate2008 and lellybear, thought Shia Labeouf would make a great Cory and I agree that once upon a time he was an excellent awkward teen. But alas, he's a bit older now and probably "too cool" for the role. I also thought savilerow085's suggestion that Alexandar Gould from Weeds is a great idea for Cory.

I got a kick out of all the Topangas including leeluvfashion's idea for Willa Holland (remember her from The O.C.?) and chasingjamie's suggestion for Miriam McDonald (even though she changed her mind to Brittany Snow later).

In the end, it was a great young cast and a truly spot-on Mr. Feeny that won this week's challenge: congrats to kea718!

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


kea718's cast list:
Cory Matthews — Devon Werkheiser
Eric Matthews — Drake Bell
Shawn Hunter —Matthew Underwood
Topanga Lawrence — Emma Roberts
George Feeny — Ken Jenkins
Alan Matthews — Bill Paxton
Amy Matthews — Molly Ringwald

WOOHOO!!! I didn't really think I'd win. Thats awesome!! It was pretty hard to think of who to pick. Its hard to think of the young actors even though I'm a closet Nick and Disney watcher. Really the only person who screamed out at me was Ken Jenkins.

Devon Werkheiser would be perfect for Cory! He was so cute and funny on "Ned's Declassified." I loved that show.

I don't know these young actors - but it looks like a great cast. I like the adults that were chosen. Good work! Glad to see the twenty-something Shia didn't end up as Cory

i don't agree with any of the picks except for mr. feeny. I think that Ken Jenkins is a great actor. I love him on "Scrubs"

I don't think I would've liked anyone's picks. The first cast was just so perfect I can't see anyone else doing them justice.
