Warner Brothers to Make a Gilligan's Island Movie 2010-03-03 11:30:00

Buzz In: Cast the Gilligan's Island Movie!

Remember Gilligan's Island? It was like Lost, but instead of smoke monsters and alternate realities, they had coconut radios and innocent sexual tension. Child TV addicts such as myself were obsessed with its reruns back in the day, but now the old show is about to get some very wide exposure: Warner Bros. is turning the classic sitcom into a feature film.

A few years ago, I asked you to recast the series for fun (John Krasinski won the lead then), but now that Gilligan's Island is actually going to be a movie, I want you to come up with actors who would play the principal parts now. Composer Sherwood Schwartz has mentioned Michael Cera for Gilligan, while I think Christina Hendricks makes an obvious Ginger, and George Clooney, the perfect Professor. Now it's your turn: Cast away!

Skipper - Andy Richter Professor - Mos Def Mary Ann - Ginnifer Goodwin Gilligan - Justin Long The Howells - Bruce Willis & Cybill Shepherd Ginger is too easy (no pun intended)

Oh, and I think Jesse Eisenberg would be a good Gilligan. (That could be because I loved Zombieworld and I just want to see him in more.)

I think Jennifer Garner is a little old to be Maryanne, but mich, Christine Baranski and John Goodman are great suggestions!

Michael Cera is a good choice, but so is Jay Baruchel. Anna Kendrick is a good choice for Maryann and @michlny I love the idea of Christine Baranski playing Mrs. Howell. Dermot Mulroney can play the Professor, but that's my personal choice ;)
