Vaughn and Ferrell in an old-school remake of M*A*S*H?

TV shows like ”Bewitched” and ”The Love Boat” are making big-screen comebacks. What old TV show would you like to be brought back as a movie, and which actors would you like to see play the parts? – Ami Arellano
Here’s my surefire-hit concept, Ami: Revive a TV show that started out as a movie – ”M*A*S*H” – but use the smart-aleck tone TV writer Larry Gelbart brought to the property, not the black-humor one film director Robert Altman deployed. Cast dead-pan jokers Vince Vaughn and Will Ferrell in the Hawkeye and Trapper John roles, and some studio will have itself one big box office smash.

(Got a TV-related question for Ken? Post it here.)
