There’s a “Gilligan’s Island” Movie in the Works – Who Would You Cast as the Seven Castaways?
There’s a “Gilligan’s Island” movie in the works. Josh Gad, who played Steve Wozniak in the movie “Jobs”, is going to co-write it AND play one of the parts. There’s no word which one.
I also don’t know if it’ll take place in the present day. The original series ran for three seasons in the 1960s.
But either way, this brings up the obvious question: Who would YOU cast in a “Gilligan’s Island” movie? Here are my picks:
Gilligan: Justin Long
Skipper: John Goodman
The Professor: Steve Carell
Mary Ann: Jennifer Lawrence
Ginger: Christina Hendricks
Mr. Howell: Tom Hanks
Mrs. Howell: Meryl Streep
Could you do better? Most likely. So give it a shot. What’s the DREAM “Gilligan’s Island” cast?
