The Results Are In: Recast Sixteen Candles

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!

For this week's recast challenge, I was surprised and impressed by your ideas for the part of Sam Baker in Sixteen Candles, a part Molly Ringwald made legendary. In particular I loved maeve's suggestion of Sarah Drew who played the lovably nerdy Hannah on "Everwood." I also liked tdamji's idea of Isla Fisher and nycpogo's suggestion of Allison Mack. As for Ginny, I could definitely see Anna Faris doing well in that part, as posited by HellooQueen, and I also thought Kristen Bell would be funny, as suggested by girlnone. Finally, I think total's idea of James Franco as Jake Ryan is a great one.

Overall, however, I most enjoyed writergrrl26's recast list! To see who writergrrl26 chose, along with a new cast photo,

writergrrl26's cast:
Samantha Baker: Tina Majorino
Jake Ryan: Chris Lowell
Long Duk Dong: Bobby Lee
Ted: Michael Cera
Jim Baker: Joe Flaherty
