    Jerry Stiller and Betty White — The Howells
    Paul Rudd – The Professor
    and since we are dreaming…

    Megan Fox as Mary Anne — HA!

    I’ve never seen “Mad Men”,
    but Christina Hendricks looks perfect.
    I’d hope her acting is just as impressive
    (We don’t want another Judith Baldwin,
    who tragically took over the role
    in the “Rescue…” movies. ICCHH!!).
    I can’t imagine a better choice for Gilligan than
    Michael Cera.
    For The Skipper, I suggest Richard Riehle
    (Walt on TV’s “Grpunded For Life” & he was recently in Rob Zombie’s “Halloween II”.
    For The Howells, how about Dan Aykroyd
    & Gena Rowlands?
    Simon Baker (“The Mentalist”)
    might be good as The Professor
    & I think Anna Friel
    (Charlotte Charles on “Pushing Daisies”)
    would work nicely as Mary Ann.

    micheal cera – gilligan
    steve carell- mr. howell
    jennifer coolidge- mrs. howell
    alice eve- ginger
    emmanuelle chriqui- mary ann

    The ideal cast, without a doubt should be:
    Gilligan:Zack Braff (Scrubs)
    Skipper:Kevin James(King of Queens)
    Mary Ann:Isla Fisher
    Professor:Simon Baker (Mentalist)
    Mr. Howell:Michael Caine
    Mrs. Howell:Julie Andrews

    Gilligan- Jim Carrey
    Skipper- John Goodman
    Mr Howell- Kelsey Grammer
    Mrs Howell- Susan Serandon
    Mary Ann- Tiffany Amber Thesson
    Professor- Chris Rock

    Gilligan: Justin Lake-he’s a dead ringer for Bob Denver!
    Skipper: John Goodman
    Mr. Howell:Rogor Moore
    Mrs. Howell: Judi Dench
    Ginger Grant: Beyonce
    Mary Anne: Katie Holmes
    Professor: Peirce Brosnan or Liam Neeson-both are perfect as intellectual straight men.
    I know this casting cuts the mold a little, but there really is no reason why the Howells can’t be British or the professor an Irishman. And two of my favorite episodes are the ones that had Boris Balinkoff, a mad scientist that lived on a nearby island who experimented on the castaways-Johnny Depp or Robert Downey Jr. would be perfect for that role!

      I would love to see Pierce Brosman as the Professor. Not only does he look the part, but he is smoking hot!!!!!

  • Darknight

    I also hope they don’t ruin this by putting in sex or drugs-Gilligan’s Island was a wholesome
    show, and it should stay that way.

    • Michelle

      I agree, it seems when they remake the old movies they put in stupid stuff like sex and drugs. I can remember as far back as when I was 4 years old watching Gilligan’s Island. I would hate for it to be a disappointment like Dukes of Hazzard. I hated what they did to that show. We don’t need all of that stupid stuff in order to make a movie entertaining.

  • Michelle

    Kevin James-Skipper
    Sandra Bullock-Mary Ann

  • jgk

    Michael Cera as Gilligan
    John Goodman as Skipper (no brainer)
    Joan Rivers and Mrs. Howell
    Michael Cain as Mr. Howell
    Tina Fey!!!!! as Ginger
    Colbert as the Professor
    Beyonce as Mary Ann

  • Darknight

    Come to think of it, that guy who played Gibbs in Pirates of the Caribbean would be good as the Skipper too-although I think he’d be less of a blowhard and more acerabic

  • Al

    Michael Caine and Betty White as the Howells

  • justin

    Zach Braff from scrubs would make a good gilligan

  • justin

    robert de niro and blythe danner from meet the parents would be good as mr and mrs howe

  • Ryan Spike

    Alec baldwin as the millionaire. Giovanni Ribisi or John Krasinski as the professor. Kevin James or Nick Offerman from Parks and Recreation as the skipper. Natalie Portman, Zoey Deschanel or Rachel McAdams as Mary Ann. Christina Hendrcks would be perfect as Ginger, but I heard they already cast Rose McGowan. Forget Michael Cera; Jack McBrayer would make the best Gilligan.
