The Brady Bunch Movie

Greetings, y'all. I recently received a challenge to make a movie cast of my family. I don't know if that made sense. Here is what I came up with. This was oodles of fun and probably there are better people out there, but I was just thinking of casts in movies that came to mind. The link for the first names will take you to their listing on (for the unfamiliar) and the last name will send you off to pictures (also for the unfamiliar).

Pops Brady: Eugene Levy
Moms Brady: Blythe Danner
Greg: Paul Walker
Greg's wife: Romola Garai
Peter: Aiden Gillen
Peter's wife: Alex Kingston
Marcia: Jennifer Connelly
Marcia's husband: Steven Waddington
Myself (Jan): Ideally it would be Emma Watson, because, you know, she's Hermione. But "realistically" I chose Alison Lohman.

A few notes of explanation:
  • Alex Kingston is, of course, older than the real deal but whatever
  • Marcia and I have long had the opinion that Mr. Marcia resembled Duncan from Last of the Mohicans.
  • About Alison Lohman. I picked her since she's like in her mid-twenties and she's played teenagers. What does this have to do with me? I was recently asked if this were my first semester at college or (earlier) if I were here visiting family while on spring break (like high school spring break).
  • Casting is based on looks, not movies. Because some of them have made sucky/weird movies indeed (No, I'm not talking about Fast and the Furious because I enjoy that movie).
  • As for Peter, if I were casting Peter of the universally-praised tale "Greg's Tree House" he would, naturally, be played by Vin Diesel.
  • Paul Walker. Hahahaha.

    So there you have it, folks. The brilliant, Oscar-winning cast of the Brady Bunch Movie. Hurrah!


  1. That's pretty good, although I had to look up half of your choices on IMDB. Do I really look like Paul Walker? Well anyway. I still think my list is better, but no one is outraged. It was disappointing.

  2. I'm outraged by this depraved indifference to my family. I mean, not this one, frumix'x one.

  3. I'm really fire-out about this casting list. I think that anyone who thinks that I can be played by a piece of roast chicken is so infurgeoned, that it would behooveth me to harabule this website into the most poilenting absonomore ever!

  4. Roast chicken, eh? That's not as bad as being played by someone of the opposite gender now is it?
