It’s Thursday, so it’s time to remake an 80s classic TV show or movie with an all-new cast. This week, in honor of Ricardo Montalban, who just passed away: Fantasy Island, the 1977-84 ABC series about dreams coming true.
(If you have a suggestion for an 80s TV show or movie we should play with, feel free to email me.)
The original cast included:
Mr. Roarke: Ricardo Montalban
Tattoo: Hervé Villechaize
Now, considering the major dearth of little-people actors, I don’t think we need to absolutely cast a small person as Tattoo. You can if you like, but I hear that Peter Dinklage isn’t available… though it would be interesting to see him put his particular brand of snark on the character.
So don’t worry about size: think about capturing the essence of the character when you’re recasting.
My dream cast — gender switched!:
Mr. Roarke: Judi Dench
Tattoo: Kristen Chenoweth
Da plane! Da plane!
