Original: Penn Badgley
Recast: Victor Rasuk
To capture Dan Humphrey's down-to-earth, nice guy charm, we pick Raising Victor Vargas star Victor Rasuk. For those of you doubting that America will buy him as Rodrigo Santoro's son, allow us to point out that the current Dan and Rufus Humphrey look more like brothers than father and son, too. Besides, reuniting Victor with his RVV co-star Melonie Diaz, who we've tapped to play Dan's BFF Vanessa Abrams, more than makes up for it, don't you think?
