There have been a few Hollywood reports that Warner Bros. has a Gilligan's Island movie is in the works. I am pretty excited about this considering that I watched every episode over and over again on Nick and Nite. I've put together my own picks as to who should be cast as well as some fabulous party inspiration for your next luau. Warmer weather is on it's way, so being a castaway on a deserted island doesn't sound so bad right now! Let's get our feet wet with a Fabulous Flashback (Or Flash Forward?) to Gilligan's Island (The Movie)!
Gilligan: Ashton Kutcher (He's goofy and adorable!); The Skipper (too...): Kevin James (He'd bring some definite humor to this role!); The Millionaire and his Wife: Not even a question in my mind: Stanley Tucci & Meryl Streep are perfection; The Movie Star: Hollywood vixen Scarlett Johansson (she could really work this character!); The Professor: Paul Rudd (How much do you love him?) and Mary-Ann: Ginnifer Goodwin (This actress + a ponytail = adorable!)
How To Throw the Perfect Gilligan's Island Themed Luau:
- Dress up as your favorite TV character!
- Play trivia games!
- Have "the Honeybees" perform a live concert
- Island food is easy and gorgeous! We've picked luau kabobs, a tasty flower-coconut drink,and tropical cupcakes. Display your island spread with flowers, candles, and cute umbrellas!
- Go for a swim! Have you bought new swimwear for the season?
- Send the perfect luau invitation: We've picked Let's Mai Tai for some modern island flair!
Most importantly have fun and relax! Hammocks, palm trees, reggae music, tiki torches and a warm breeze is really all you need for an island extravaganza! Theme your party Gilligan's Island style and you'll bring that taste of Hollywood to your affair.
