Denny Crane As Oliver Douglas: Recast Green Acres!
BuzzSugar has a regular weekly feature where readers are asked to recast an old television series.
Green Acres was, and is, one of my favorite moldy-oldies.
So here’s my pick (either real-life or tv character they play.)
- Oliver Douglas – Denny Crane (William Shatner’s part on Boston Legal.)
- Lisa – Kelly Ripa (Regis and Kelly co-host)
- Hank – Michael Scott (Steve Carrell’s character on The Office.)
- Eb – Sarah Silverman (Eb as a sharp, foul mouthed, jew!)
- Mr. Haney – Donald Trump
- Mother Douglas – Dame Edith Evans
Yeah, that would work!
Spoiler: responses to the “contest.”
UPDATE: Hey everbody! Lookit this:
Most recently, she was tapped to work on the newly reimagined pilot of the 70’s sitcom, Green Acres (Para-Scope Productions), with veteran TV helmer Richard L. Bare.
The casting director for the new Green Acres commented below! Kewl –
In my perfect big budget, big screen adaptation, this is the perfect cast! Leeluvfasion, you really understand the heart of each character…don’t be surprised if I send you headshots and ask for help later! Great job, and thanks for taking an interest! Keep the buzz going!!! Best to all, Pixie Monroe, Casting Director.
@Pixie: Well heck, since you seem to be for real, how about casting me as the New Sam Drucker?
