Recast Grease and Win a Prize!


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!

This summer we have one beloved film-turned-musical-turned-remade-film, Hairspray, and recently heard news about another in the works: Footloose. Following along that theme (and using another of your suggestions), let's just say Grease were being remade and needed present-day actors (and let's face it, it's only a matter of time).

Who would you cast in those roles? You don't need to know if the actors can actually sing, just if they seem right for the roles. And please no reality show contestants from "You're the One That I Want"!
Leave your entry in the comment section below, and I'll pick one winner to feature Tuesday, July 24, complete with a "new" cast photo. To see a list of characters to recast and a photo of the BuzzSugar t-shirt, read more
