The Results Are In: Recast Three's Company

For last week's Recast challenge, I had you guys to hunt for a great new lineup to fill the shoes of John Ritter, Suzanne Somers, and Joyce DeWitt on "Three's Company."

There were some really great ideas batted around, particularly for the Jack Tripper role. I loved RCLDesign Girl's casting of Tom Cavanagh and ControlledSpin's choice of Zach Braff. But the award for best Recast goes to Elynette, whose list was both clever and surprising. To see her picks and the "new" cast photo,


Elynette was the first reader to suggest Jason Ritter for the role, saying "I think that his late father passed on some good genes to him." Here are her picks:

Jack Tripper — Jason Ritter (Happy Endings, "The Class")
Chrissy Snow — Anna Faris (Scary Movie)
Janet Wood — Mila Kunis ("That 70s Show")

I agree with Jason playing Jack Tripper because he looks like his dad but the girls dont fit the part as crissy and Janet lol.

Thanks everybody!!! (feels affirmed) I thought (in the event that this show would actually be remade) that Tom Cavanaugh's spot-on delivery of a line would replace the physical comedy of the original Jack Tripper character.

i like this game, but couldn't think of anyone to cast in the roles. now it's like "duh" of course the casting of his son would be obvious :) 2007?

I love the idea of Tom Cavanaugh, RCL!! He would be so good. He's really funny, without trying to hard to be, I think.
