The Results Are In: Recast "The Facts of Life"

Every 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!

With this week's recast challenge for "The Facts of Life", I actually wish the show could be made again with these new actors! My favorite ideas were the ones submitted for the character of Mrs. Garrett, like jpullman813's suggestion of Kathy Najimy, LaLaLaurie06's idea of Kathy Bates and Jane Fonda, as put forth by leeluvfashion and Hollisterbabe01.

I also thought Kaycee Stroh would be perfect as Natalie, as ddene5713 and SugarySweet022 suggested. And finally, Martha MacIsaac from Superbad is a great pick for Jo, as posited by brainstormchaser. Overall, though, my favorite recast list this week comes from rinxy! To see who rinxy chose, along with a new cast photo,

rinxy's cast:
Blair — Amanda Seyfried
Tootie — Raven-Symoné
Natalie — Nikki Blonsky
Jo — Amanda Bynes
Mrs. Garrett — Caroline Rhea
