The Results Are In: Recast Will and Grace

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!

This week's recast challenge for Will and Grace proved that great minds think alike, as many of you suggested similar actors to take on the roles of Will, Grace, Karen and Jack. Amidst all the Michael Uries for Jack and Isla Fischers to play Grace, there were some other interesting suggestions, like runnerjenn827's idea to put Jane Krakowski in Karen's role, and leeluvfashion'sawesome suggestion of Matthew Rhys playing Will.

I loved mamaseacat's Ugly Betty-inspired cast list, and sorano916's idea of Idina Menzel playing Grace is one of my favorites from this challenge. It was a tough task deciding on just one recast list, but in the end I chose hil34 as this week's winner. Congratulations, hil34! To see who she cast, along with a new cast photo,


hil34's cast:
Will Truman — Neil Patrick Harris
Grace Adler — Isla Fisher
Karen Walker — Kristin Chenoweth
Jack McFarland — Michael Urie

Kristin Chenowith is a brilliant idea for Karen! I never even thought of her, but she could definitely pull off the voice (and we know from Pushing Daisies she has the boobs for it too haha!)

mlmoreno47 - I totally agree, Isla Fisher was the first person I thought of (and Michael Urie for Jack, also). I think Sarah Chalke is a great choice for Grace!

I don't know about Kristin Chenowith as Karen. I love her on Pushing Daisies! I'm sure she would make a great Karen, but I don't want her to leave the other role. She's hilarious.

I think Bradley Cooper would make a good Will. And I LOVE the idea of Sarah Chalke as Grace!

Isla fisher is the obvious choice. Someone like sarah chalke could do grace justice also.
