Good Times Movie in the Works! Who Should Be Cast! (Photos)

Good times are on the horizon! There is news that that the iconic and beloved TV classic Good Times is being made into a feature film.  The show focused on a working-class African American family living in a Chicago housing project. The Museum of  Broadcast Communications stated about the importance of the show saying that, “Good Times earned its place in television history for a number of reasons. The program is significant for its decidedly different view, not only of Black family life, but American family life in general.” The film is being made by Sony Pictures and they’ve reportedly hired Phil Johnston who wrote Wreck-It Ralph.  But here is the BIG question. Who should be cast in the film? We’ve made our choices! What do you think?

    Octavia Spencer is a bit young, but a little aging make-up could go a long way!

    We think Anthony Mackie would be a "Dynamite" choice. He doesn't get the comedy roles, but he is HILARIOUS, so would be great in this comic role.

    Shake it Up's Zendaya Coleman may sing and dance, but she can also act. Would be great to see her in a role like this.

    Viola would be wonderful as Willona Woods, the stylish best friend. Plus she'd get to work with her Help co-star Octavia Spencer (if she was cast as Florida.)
  • Penny 14 of 15

  • Willow Smith 15 of 15

    Willow Smith would be a great pick! Plus she could with her brother (if he was cast as Michael Evans).
