Fantasy Casting | "The Good Times Movie"

For years, the concept of a "Good Times" movie was been floating around.

Recently, I have been wondering about who would play the Evans family in the film. If I could cast the film, the following actors would be chosen:

Uzo Aduba as "Florida Evans"

Uzo is hot right now. From "Orange Is The New Black" to "The Wiz: Live", the 34-year-old powerhouse has the dramatic range to pull off this role.

Lamonica Garrett as "James Evans"

Currently, Lamonica is the "boyfriend" of Hollywood. He's played the role in "black-ish" and "Mr. Robinson" and he needs an upgrade. As soon as I saw him, I immediately thought of James Evans.

In my movie version, I would imagine the alternative: James returns from Mississippi and surprises his family who thought he was dead. 

Marcus Scribner as "Michael Evans"

Marcus is already 5'11 but he could still pull off Michael Evans. 

Drew Sidora as "Thelma Evans" 

Drew's in her 30s but she's youthful enough to pull of this role. Plus, she is gorgeous. 

Jerrod Carmichael as "JJ Evans"

Jerrod would definitely be "Dyno-mite" in this role. He's funny and likable on the screen. 

The "Carmichael Show" star has the comedic timing and confidence to get the job done. 

Who are your picks?
