  • Michael Cera should play Gilligan in 'Gilligan's Island: The Movie.' But who should play the Skipper?


    “Gilligan’s Island: The Movie” has gotten the green light at Warner Bros., according to Variety magazine.

    And who does the classic TV show’s venerable producer, Sherwood Schwartz, want to play Gilligan?

    “Juno” and “Superbad” star Michael Cera.

    Coincidentally, two months ago, we recast the classic 1960s sitcom ourselves.

    In the lead role, we also said that the irrepressible Michael Cera should play the Skipper’s irrepressible little buddy, Gilligan. (Small world.)

    RECAST BLAST: Our 2010 cast of  ‘Gilligan’s Island.’

    We also had an even better idea, in our humble opinions: casting William Shatner as The Skipper.

    That’s right: the Captain of the Star Trek Enterprise playing the Skipper of the SS Minnow.

    Can’t you see him getting mad and falling out of the top hammock? (Although at his age, a stunt double may be a good idea.)

    If you agree, give your vote of support in Comments below, and we’ll make sure Warner Bros. – and Shatner – get them.

    If you don’t, tell us who you think should take on the daunting task of following in Alan Hale, Jr.’s footsteps!
