The Results Are In: Recast The Nanny

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!

There were plenty of great suggestions for this first recast challenge of 2008! I especially loved the ideas for new actresses to play Fran Fine. My favorites include ChrissyBaby's idea of Ana Ortiz, and kersalli's suggestion of Sandra Bullock.

I also enjoyed the suggestions for the part of Niles, from foudini's idea of Steve Carell, to Hugh Laurie, as WhiplashGirlchild and supertramp suggested.

However, my favorite list this week comes from megan921! To see who megan921 chose, along with a new cast photo,

megan921's cast:
Fran Fine — Adrianne Curry
Maxwell Sheffield — Dougray Scott
Maggie Sheffield — Kay Panabaker
Brighton Sheffield — Angus T. Jones
Grace Sheffield — Emerson Tenney (Teri Hatcher's daughter)
Niles — Ricky Gervais
C. C. Babcock — Amy Adams

Ooh I can totally get behind this recast! Fran Drescher was SO annoying. Adrianne Curry is a perfect choice! Great job!

Adrianne Curry is a good suggestion because she is truly "unpolished" and similar to Fran in many ways. Plus, I like the Ricky Gervais pick too! Congrats on the win!

Ha! Adrienne Curry is a hilarious idea. She could accurately match the annoyingness of Fran Drescher. ;)
