TwoCentsTV Recasting The Classics – Gilligan’s Island

logo title

If you have ever done any acting in your life, or know anyone who has – at any level – you’ve most likely been around as that group of people cast famous shows, plays, movies with other people.

We’ve been looking at classic TV shows and wondering which modern TV stars would we cast in roles on shows such as M*A*S*H*, I Love Lucy and the Honeymooners.

So, from time to time, we’re going to gather up some fun ideas and share our TwoCents on recasting these classic shows with you. We hope you’ll chime in and share yours back!

Today I gathered a couple friends and we looked at the major players from the fan-favorite Gilligan’s Island which ran on CBS from 1964 to 1967. Take a look at our new cast and let us know what we go right, what we got wrong and who we missed!

Natalie Schafer was perfection as Eunice Lovelle Wentworth Howell. Our "Lovie" had the grace of age and the naivety of youth. How GREAT would Arrested Development's Jessica Walter be in the role today?
