Title: Stupid Poll Question number 36...
Post by: The 6th Rogue on Dec 13, 07, 09:06:48 pm CST
In the movie who would we have to cast to play you? (You can add an 'and why' if you feel so inclined.)

You keep starting these threads without offering your own answer as an example.

Why is that?

Minnie Driver... cuz I get told I look like her at least once a month.  That, and I adore her voice.  ;D

Because I don't want to narrow the possibilities of free thought.  Then again, Pathos, you already suffer from that so I can see why you'd bring up the question.  ;)  :P

Since you asked in your own befuddled way: Gary Sinise.

That and also if I post a question and answer it that makes the thread all about me.  As much as I have a reputation for having an ego I'm not interested in things being about me really.

I have no idea who should play me.  Winnona Ryder I would have to guess.

Rob Zombie... He's done the RnR thing, so he would be able to connect to that. He's an actor/director, so he would be able to connect with the "Rennie" thing. He's twisted, which I'm only a little twisted, he's got the beard, but he has hair and I really don't anymore. Yeah, I think that would work...

He was the first one I thought of.

I've been pondering this and I'm afraid I'm going to have to disallow this answer.  I want you to think, even if it's an actor I'd have to look up on IMDb and then youtube to figure out who you're talking about, there's gotta be someone.  I usually say Gary Sinise because everyone says he looks and sounds like me (especially the dark circles around the eyes and the constant state of being mildly pissed off even when happy) but in order to really nail portraying me you'd need either Johnny Depp or Gary Oldman.  Maco and Phoenix have the idea nailed.  Think and try again.  ;)

I get Oliver Platt a lot.

I actuall saw him on a street corner near Times Square a year or so ago.  It's not obvious from seeing him on TV or in movies, but he's a really tall guy.  Easily 6'5".

Fine... since we're on the "I've been told I look like..." thing... I'm gonna go with Henry Rollins.  I personally don't see the resemblance, but I've been told that several times.  The guy does have my attitude.

Ten years ago I'd have said John Cusack. The reason I say that is a few years ago my big sister said the reason she's liked John Cusack all these years is because he reminds her of me.

Now I'm not so sure he fits.

Now I'm thinking Donal Logue might be better.

Well to be completely obvious Vin Diesel, back when Pitch Black came out I got that a lot
Of late I would say Jason Statham would probably do a better job and he's about the right height  :P

Hmmm, for personality, it would have to be someone with a nasty, snarky sense of perverse humor. I'm too fucking mean to be funny for most people....

Maybe a female version of Alan Rickman....sans accent natch. (I only wish! *lol*)

As far as looks.... I'm short thin, and shapless. Take your damn pick. *sigh* I don't realy look like anybody famous.

NOW - for the real question at hand....who would actually be *good* enough to play me.... Stockard Channing. No one else could. Fucking ballsy, in your face, but damn funny. And talented....'cause hey...somebody's gonna have to take up my slack in the band if I'm not doing it. Hope she can play drum. *lol*

After much thought, the answer I've come up with is Heath Ledger. He's played the range from Casanova to the Joker, with a stop in there as a gay guy, which is kind of similar to me, I guess. Roguish, nuts, and a little gay sometimes. (What can I say, theater does that to a man. Also having really good friends.)

Hmmm, I'll play...I get Johnny Depp alot but now that he's popular again from 'Pirates' I'd have to say Kevin Costner-ish.  It really depends on the mode of my facial hair.

...which is kind of similar to me, I guess. Roguish, nuts, and a little gay sometimes. (What can I say, theater does that to a man. Also having really good friends.)

LOL @ BattleMonk.  If my buds here at work saw me in costume and out of context, that's the first thing they'd call me!

Stop resurrecting dead threads!

And whatever you do don't say *yawn* Johnny Depp.

Everybody says that!!!

No, I wouldn't cast Johnny Depp as me, but I think he'd be fabulous!   :laugh:  If I were to cast a guy as me, I'd cast Russell Crowe, because he's just that cool.

I could see Anne Hathaway... we're the same age (I'm 1 month older to the day, actually), about the same height, and have similar personalities.   And that's about where the similarities end.  I'm rather glad there isn't anyone in H'wood who looks like me at the moment...

I feel so dirty, but at least its group necrothreadphilia.

Steve Zahn.  He needs to be a bit taller, but hey, the dorky yet hillarious personality is what I was going for.

I've got the dorky part down. Now, I just need to get hilarious part figured out.  :)

I'll go with my usual answer....Kate Winslet, as I've been told I resemble her or vice-versa.

EDIT To say....I didn't realize how freaking old this thread was when i saw it and replied. My apologies for adding to the dredged up drudge.  :-[

I could see Dedi playing you.  Right skin tone, hair tone, facial structure, etc.  Purcell and Csokas are just not you.  Sorry...

Good Lord... who would I get to play me?  Eesh.  I was told once that I looked like Brooke Shields, but that was years ago and I think the person was high.  To the best of my knowledge, there aren't any actresses out there that look enough like me to satisfy me.  Sorry 6th, I'm abstaining from this one.

One of my teachers told me I looked like Linda Carter. Another acquaintence used to call me "Rose" after Kate Winslet's character in Titanic.

I think Drew Barrymore would best be able to capture my awkward, nerdy, goofy personality, if only I could surgically remove her annoying lisp. :)

I think it's cute.  But yes, annoying because when I start to lust after her, she speaks and reminds me of when she was a little girl in Poltergeist...erg, I'm no pedo.  >:(

If that makes me feel dirty, she I be feeling guilty?


LOL

I think the girl who plays Starbuck on BSG would work for you.  I could be wrong since I only have your avatar to go from. The one on the left in the attached pic:

Either Will Farrel if he could ever learn to act relatively NORMAL.  (I'd hate for him to be his usual character...) Sure I'm a clown...but a smart clown... not a moron...

Or John Larroguette in his Night Court days...  Besides he was the Narrator for The Texas Chainsaw Massacre 1 and 2... how cool is that ???

Yeah, I know it's dead.   It's still a funny topic.

Drew Carey for me.

I look just like him when I wear horn rims.

I'm cursed.

But at least I didn't say Johnny Depp.
