Enquiring Minds: Your Biopic [SURVEY]
Sometimes in my younger days, my friends from college and I would sit on the porch and talk the evening away. You’d often get into some interesting topics that required a bit of imagination. I remember one of those topics was about movies. We were talking about some kind of biographical movie, and the casting that was done for them. Then of course, as the evening went on, we started speculating about what we’d want in our biographical movie. Who would we want to play us in the movie of our lives? Would we want it to be funny or serious? I remember my friend Joe wanted Joseph Gordon Levitt to play him. He also made sure that we knew there would have to be a scene about tennis in it, and that it would be in slow motion, preferably in the rain, with a sad Radiohead song playing over it. For me, I don’t think I’d want it to be very realistic because, well, that’s kind of boring. I’d want the movie about my life to be action packed and funny, and have Christina Hendricks playing me. You probably know her as the lady who plays Joan on Mad Men.
ISN’T THE RESEMBLANCE UNCANNY? Just so we’re clear, I’m the one in the green dress on the left. She’s the one that’s on the right. It’s pretty hard to tell us apart, after all. Well, okay, so it’s not. Maybe if she was a little less perfect and more short and goofy. But hey, a girl can dream, can’t she? After all, it’s MY movie. That’s the beauty of the whole thing, I guess. Anyway, so why don’t you tell me about what your movie would be like? Who would you want to play you in the story of YOUR life? Would you want someone who kind of looks like you, or something completely different? If you want, you can even tell me who you’d want to star as your family, or maybe even your friends. Tell me in our survey and I’ll share your answers on the air!
