OK, this originally started out as an info post...until Duke had a brilliant idea! They want to remake the Wizard of Oz. Yup...they really do want to mess with the original. So! I want to hear who you would cast in those roles? Who would make a fun Dorothy? How about Tin-man, The Lion, and of course Scarecrow? Who's gonna play Toto? Munchkins? And, of course, the Witches!

Let's recast for them! Serious or in fun, what have ya got?

I'd have to think on that one, but honestly, it's probably best left alone. I'm not saying it couldn't be done, but the original talent is irreplaceable. I grew up watching it as most probably did.

I think most of us would agree they need to leave a classic like this alone, but it's kinda fun imagining how very weird it would be to see a different cast taking on those roles. So far, I think Oz has the wildest mix...lol

I plan to have some fun with this one. I’m going to use TV/movie characters instead of actors. Let’s start with the characters from Gilligan’s Island in honor of Dawn Wells.

Dorothy - Mary Ann
Scarecrow - Gilligan
Tin Man - Mr. Howell
Cowardly Lion - Skipper
Good Witch - Mrs. Howell
Evil Witch - Ginger
The Wizard - The Professor
Toto - the ever present coconut/banana cream pie.

If everyday issues were left out of the film, and it was true to the original script without any rewrites, I'd probably give it a go.
