Three's Company movie in the works

Since it's almost inevitble that there will be a movie version of THREE'S COMPANY sometime in the future, here's my suggestion of who should be cast in the movie:

Jack Tripper - Jim Carrey
Chrissy - Elisha Cuthbert
Janet - Linda Cardellini or Rachael Leigh Cook
Mr. Roper - Michael Caine
Mrs. Roper - Shirley Maclaine
Larry - Jim Brewer

I think Carrey is the only actor we have now who can fill Ritter's shoes and do the type of physical comedy he did.

Of course, if they end up doing a black version of the show (like with THE HONEYMOONERS), then I would cast:

Jack Tripper - Mos Def
Chrissy - Beyonce
Janet - Rosario Dawson
Mr. Roper - Bernie Mac
Mrs. Roper - Queen Latifah
Larry - Snoop Dog

Well, right off the bat, I would cast Jimmy Fallon as Jack.

I was thinking Zach Braff for the Jack Tripper character.

Owen Wilson as Jack Tripper. (ZB would be awesome though).
Katherine Heigl as Chrissy.
Michelle Monaghan as Janet.
Christopher Walken as Mr. Roper
Blythe Danner as Mrs. Roper

and because I picked OW as Jack, that means that Vince Vaughn should play Larry...just seems like a given. Ok Hollywood, greenlight this bitch now!

Don't fool yourselves. Hollywood would make Ashton Kutcher into Jack Tripper.

Jack Tripper - Ashton Kutcher (call me Hollywood)
Janet - Rachel McAdams (cute but not too hot)
Chrissy - Jessica Simpson (let's be honest, if she was born to play any role this is it)
Larry - Ryan Reynolds (got the smarmy thing going)
Cindy - Tara Reid (another blonde idiot)
Terry - Cameron Diaz (the only blonde with half a brain)
Mr. Roper - Philip Baker Hall (Lt. Bookman -Library Cop-from Seinfeld, The Loop)
Mrs. Roper - Lily Tomlin (just because)
Mr. Ferley - John Witherspoon ("You got to cuurrrrrdinate!")
Lana - Fran Drescher (a hot annoying, older chick trying to get laid... nuff said)

April Bowlby for Chrissy. Currently she's playing the 22-year old that Alan is schtupping on "Two and a Half Men".

I say bring some more depth of character to it and contemporize:

Jack Tripper – Steve Buscemi
Chrissy – Jessica Alba
Janet – Judy Greer
Mr. Roper – Ian Mckellan
Mrs. Roper – Harry Dean Stanton
Larry – Kato Kaelin

I think TheGodfather has nailed it. Like it or not. I like realists.

RIP John and Don

I'm gonna be super-fuckin' pissed if some Hollywood exec. reads this post and thinks it would be a good idea to make a "movie" outta Three's Company. Hopefully CHiPs will bomb and that will be the end of suckin' off the 70s.

I wouldn't cast anyone.

There are far better things to be brought to the big screen than this. This plot really serves much better as a TV show than a feature length movie.
