DC Contest: TV Show Miscast

Graphic DesignDC Contest: TV Show Miscast

Have you ever watched a TV show and thought, “This show is cool, but it would be even cooler if this actor was the lead instead…”? 

Well, no need to wonder, as one of DesignCrowd’s photoshop community contests did just that. The designers are tasked to be a casting director for one day. They can recast a TV show of their choosing with different actors or actresses but make it as outlandish as possible. No need to combine the shows or change the titles, just change the actors. 

Sounds interesting? We’ve received tons of really clever and witty edits. Check them out below! 

What if we go from Hangover to Terminator?

The winning submission is this seamless and well-executed edit from Buurman. Here, American comedian Zach Galifianakis is now the Terminator! We wonder how he’ll fare in this sci-fi world. Do you think he’ll have as many misadventures? 


Mr. Bean as Larry King

We’re sure Mr. Bean will make this talk show fun just as Larry King did! Though we wonder if some actual “talking” will be done…

What if Mr. Bean is Dexter? What if Sheldon Cooper stopped being a physicist and became a superhero instead? What if Michael J. Scofield decided to hunt ghosts instead of breaking his brother out of prison?

You can see all these fun alternate universes courtesy of our designers. Scroll down to see all the entries!

The contest received 18 Photoshop submissions from 13 creatives. 

This contest truly shows that the power of imagination and letting your creativity fly is important to make incredible artwork. Adding a touch of wit is great as well – who would have thought to make a character who doesn’t speak as a talk show host?
