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!
"Just sit right back and you'll hear a tale/ A tale of a fateful trip/ That started from this tropic port/ Aboard this tiny ship!" This week, tell me a modern tale of this fateful trip by recasting "Gilligan's Island" with new actors. Who could play the Professor and Mary Ann? Or the Howell couple? And what about Skipper and that redhead Ginger? Finally, who would you cast as the goofy Gilligan himself?
Leave your entry in the comment section below, and I'll pick one winner to feature Tuesday, September 25, complete with a "new" cast photo. To see a list of characters to recast and a photo of the BuzzSugar t-shirt, read more
