The Results Are In: Recast The Breakfast Club

For last Wednesday's Recast challenge, I asked you guys to choose a whole new cast for the John Hughes classic, The Breakfast Club. This was by far the most wildly popular Recast challenge yet, and there were so many good ideas. I particularly loved PinkRabbit's pick for Frankie Muniz to play the geek role originated by Anthony Michael Hall, and I was pleasantly surprised by Honeysugar28 choosing Scarlett Johansson for the Molly Ringwald part.

But the best list overall came from Swwonder, who really nailed it with an ideal mix of young actors or actors who just look young. Here are her picks, complete with a "new" cast photo.

Claire Standish (The Princess) — Mandy Moore
Andy Clark (The Jock) — Chad Michael Murray
Brian Johnson (The Geek) — Adam Brody
John Bender (The Rebel) — James Franco
Allison Reynolds (The Basket Case) — Anna Paquin

Tune in tomorrow for another Recast challenge!

Thanks everyone! I'm not a big fan of CMM, he comes across as being a bit slimy, but I sort of thought he'd fit the Jock type person.

Good choices! But I have to agree with all the CMM haters out there. But he does look like he would fit the role!

Nice Photoshop job there, Buzz. I love Adam Brody as the Geek. And yeah, CMM is gross.

lol JennaV, I feel the same way about CMM. Franco seems a little old to be in high school detention. ------------------------------------------------------ Imagination is more important than knowledge. Knowledge is limited. — Albert Einstein
