The other day I had a bit of fun recasting Babylon 5 for a (not scheduled at this time) reboot. So I thought I’d take one of my favorite TV shows during my much younger days and try to recast it too. I’m thinking of a one-off movie here. It would still be a comedy but slightly more serious than its small-screen parent was.
So here goes with the Character first, the original actor in parenthesis and my idea for the reboot. One note, a couple of these guys might be a wee bit long in the tooth but as long as they are alive (and after Samuel Jackson was de-aged in Captain Marvel nothing is off-limits) they were considered.
Col. Robert Hogan (Bob Crane) – Chris Hemsworth
Col. Wilhelm Klink (Werner Kempler) – Jurgen Prochnow
Sergeant Hans Schultz (John Banner) – Arnold Schwarzenegger
Cpl. Peter Newkirk (Richard Dawson) – Martin Freeman
Sgt. James Kinchloe (Ivan Dixon) – Don Cheadle
Cpl. Louis LaBeau (Robert Clary) – Nathan McMullen
Sgt. Andrew Carter (Larry Hovis) – Mark Wahlberg
Hilda (Sigrid Valdis) – Malin Akerman
General Albert Burkhalter (Leon Askin) – Christoph Waltz
Major Wolfgang Hochstetter (Howard Caine) – Daniel Bruhl
Colonel Rodney Crittendon (Bernard Fox) – Stephen Fry
Tiger (Arlene Martel) – Dakota Johnson
Marya (Nina Talbot) – Emma Stone
Okay, what do you think? Who would you cast?
