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!
It's true, "Family Matters" is one of those shows that is difficult to recast, since the performances — especially that of Steve Urkel — have become so iconic. I really liked some of the suggestions put forth by everyone this week, though, like La-Ma's idea of Wanda Sykes playing Harriette Winslow and mrspiven's suggestion of Eddie Murphy dressing in drag to play Mother Winslow (a la The Nutty Professor).
Yet my favorite list this week comes from laneylaney. I like it mostly because without even seeing this cast in action they're making me laugh. To see who laneylaney picked along with a new cast photo, read more
Just when I think I've come up with a really tough Recast, you guys manage to wow me once again. I really thought last week's "The Cosby Show" challenge would be hard, since the series was on for eight seasons and had a large cast ranging from grade-school to middle-age.
But again, there were so many great entries I had trouble choosing a winner. I loved Happygirlhehe's choice of Bernie Mac to play Dr. Huxtable with Dee Dee Davis (Baby Girl on "The Bernie Mac Show") as Rudy. I was also tempted by Pinkrabbit's Wayne Brady pick for Cliff. But the best overall cast list came from Chancleta, so congrats to her for winning this week's challenge! To see her picks and a "new" cast photo, read more
