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!
Last week I asked for some new faces to take on the roles in one of my all-time favorite '80s movies: Can't Buy Me Love. You all chipped in some fantastic recast ideas, thanks for playing along!
Checking out the suggestions for recasting the gorgeous and popular Cindy was especially fun. I think applez5503's idea for Amanda Bynes is a good one (although she's probably more of a sweetheart than the character is!) as is chasingjamie's idea of Hayden Panettiere and lrakins54's suggestion of Emma Roberts.
I also dug the ideas for Cindy's BFFs. blondie829 is on the right track picking CW actresses Shanae Grimes and Jessica Szohr because neither is quite ready for leading lady status but they would fit into the high school scenery well. A couple of you also thought of AnnaLynne McCord for one of the girlfriends which cracks me up.
But of course it came down to the role that made Patrick Dempsey a star. It had to be an actor with that same manic, nerdy ambition to climb to the top of the high school popularity heap and I think aimeeb got it just right. Congrats aimeeb!
