Cast of ‘Scrooged’ Then and Now [Video]

Released in 1988, "Scrooged" was a darkly comedic take on Charles Dickens' classic 'A Christmas Carol,' starring Bill Murray in the Ebenezer Scrooge role as Frank Cross, a cynical TV executive alienated from his family and unable to find real happiness.

Struggling to put together a live production of "A Christmas Carol" on Christmas Eve, Frank finds that his real life begins to resemble the story he's producing as three ghosts visit him throughout the evening to try and get him to change his ways before it's too late.

The film took Murray from battling ghosts in 'Ghostbusters' to learning lessons from them, and over time it's become a holiday comedy classic.

Twenty five years later, take a look back at the cast of the film and see where they are now.

‘Gilligan’s Island’ Heads to Big Screen With ‘Jobs’ Star Josh Gad

Warner Bros. has apparently looked at its DVD shelf and randomly selected '60s TV series "Gilligan's Island" as the next property to get the big-screen modernization.

The studio has chosen to polish off the property and give it a go with "Jobs" and "Book of Mormon" star Josh Gad, who will co-write and star in the film adaptation.

And it should be a pretty easy, paint-by-numbers job since the roles and plot are all spelled out in the theme song as discussed on "The Free Beer & Hot Wings Morning Show" today.
