Gilligan

Bob Denver captured our hearts as the scrawny, simpleton first mate of the S.S. Minnow.

Possible Casting #1: Ashton Kutcher

Remember Kelso on That '70s Show? Kutcher knows from dim-witted.

Possible Casting #2: Topher Grace

Grace plays "lovable" and "blithering idiot" equally well.

Possible Casting #3: Justin Long

Resemblance aside, Long also has comedy chops.

Mary Ann

Dawn Wells' sweet smile and pigtails made Mary Ann the perfect counter to the vampy and sensuous Ginger.

Possible Casting #1: Anne Hathaway

Hathaway has starred in The Princess Diaries and Ella the Enchanted. How's that for wholesome?

Possible Casting #2: Mila Kunis

She's got the look. Plus: She'd fulfill your mission to get at least one That '70s Show alum cast in this thing.

The Skipper

Alan Hale Jr. played the barrel-chested ship's captain who became the castaway's de facto leader. And if there was one thing he had no tolerance for, it was his Little Buddy's ineptitude.

Possible Casting #1: Philip Seymour Hoffman

Hoffman's a funny guy (see: Along Came Polly). Plus, he has the physical body type.

Possible Casting #2: John Goodman

Goodman can do blustery with his eyes closed — and he'd totally rock the skipper hat.

Possible Casting #3: Kevin James

For a snarkier take on the Skipper, he'd be great.

The Professor

Russell Johnson was the trusty, level-headed Professor who could make anything out of coconuts and bamboo.

Possible Casting #1: Simon Baker

If The Mentalist's Patrick Jane can size you up based on how you cross your legs, then he can certainly make a radio out of river rocks and mangoes.

Possible Casting #2: Laurence Fishburne

The man plays Dr. Raymond Langston on CSI. You can't get much smarter than that.

Thurston Howell III ("The Millionaire")

Jim Backus rocked an ascot and perfected a lockjaw to play the resident rich guy.

Possible Casting #1: Donald Trump

Who better to play a pretentious old man than a pretentious old man?
18 of 24 Alberto E. Rodriguez/WireImage.com

Possible Casting #2: Steve Martin

He's game for anything when the goal is comedy. (See: the Pink Panther remakes)

Lovey Howell ("His Wife")

Natalie Schafer made grande dame Mrs. Howell both likable and maternal.

Possible Casting #1: Goldie Hawn

She basically already played the same character in Overboard.

Possible Casting #2: Christine Baranski

She just looks like old money, no?

Ginger ("The Movie Star")

Tina Louise exemplified old Hollywood glamour. Granted, we never really understood why Ginger packed so many evening gowns for a "three-hour tour," but she always looked sensational.

Possible Casting #1: Scarlett Johansson

Her fair skin, full lips and beauty mark give her a distinct Marilyn Monroe vibe.

Possible Casting #2: Christina Hendricks

Her curvy figure and 1960s Mad Men wardrobe reek of old Hollywood.
