The Results Are In: Recast "Gilligan's Island"

The Results Are In: Recast "Gilligan's Island"

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!

The cast of "Gilligan's Island" is a fun one to recast because the characters are of various ages, so you can pick your favorite actors of several different generations. I absolutely loved many of RCLdesigngirl's picks, like Ginnifer Goodwin as Mary Ann, Donald Sutherland as Thurston Howell III, and Becki Newton as Ginger.

I also enjoyed pistonsjenny's idea of Phillip Seymour Hoffman playing Skipper, and the idea of Jason Schwartzman as Gilligan, suggested by both LaLa0428 and HelloKittyMini. Finally, I think GiggleSugar and Moley25's pick of Rachel Bilson as Mary Ann is a very cute idea.

Yet my favorite cast list overall this week comes from eme391! To see who eme391 picked, along with a new cast photo,

eme391's cast:
Gilligan — John Krasinski
Skipper — William Shatner
Mary-Ann — Alyson Hannigan
Ginger — Kate Walsh
The Professor — James Denton
Mr. Howell — Alan Dale
Mrs. Howell — Swoosie Kurtz

Pretty perfect casting, I love Shatner as the Skipper!! I have to agree with Jinx though, as much as I love John Krasinski, Justin Long would make a better Gilligan.
