The Results Are In: Recast "Melrose Place"

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!

I love that the cast lists submitted for this week's recast challenge included a variety of actors from all sorts of super-dramatic shows (mostly teen dramas) — and even some reality show stars! I liked casiobeat's cast which gathered together James Van Der Beek and TR Knight with Kate Hudson and Mandy Moore.

I also got a kick out of brittemik's cast which grouped up Heidi Montag, Rob Lowe and Sarah Michelle Gellar. And extra chica13's star-studded list included Keanu Reeves, Nicole Kidman and Reese Witherspoon.

There were several great lists this week, but my favorite came from ddene5713! To see who ddene picked, along with a new cast photo,

ddene5713's cast:
Amanda — Megan Fox
Billy — Adam Brody
Allison — Hilarie Burton
Jane — Elisha Cuthbert
Dr. Michael — James Lafferty
Matt — Ryan Gosling
Dr. Kimberley — Danneel Harris
Sydney — Amy Davidson
Jo — Rachel Bilson
Jake — Emile Hirsch

I hate shows that lack racial and ethnic diversity. One gay guy (who was briefly friends with a black girl who soon left the show and never had a good storyline anyway)didn't entice me at all. Bleh to Melrose...and pretty much all of Aaron Spelling's crappy shows!

Wow, nice work ddene5713! This was a hard one. Also, the labeling of all the characters in the photo is really helpful.

yyam084 -- They don't have to have a celebrity page on TeamSugar to be chosen for the recast challenges. ddene's picks are actors that seem like they could play the roles, and that's all we need. :)
