    I'm more the director guy, but if I had to play a role besides myself :-) it would be Holden Caulfield from J.D.Salinger's The Catcher in the Rye. I read that book as a kid, and I never realized how much it impacted me, till in my teen years when adults would tell me I act like Holden. I had to go read the book again, and it chilled me to my bones reading thru the characters sense of reasoning. Mine exactly! It still chills me till date! If I could play any part better it would be that. But thats too juvenile a role for me now. Another role I would totally kill is Elijah, or Elisha. But mainly Elijah, cos I like the idea of a prophet that sits on a mountain all day long, wearing nothing but camel's skin, and whenever anyone bothers him, he just calls down fire from heaven to burn them up. The idea that someone can call down from fire from heaven anytime he pleases kills me everytime I think about it. Basically anything Fire kills me, come to think about it. I would kill the role of Elijah in a movie. No friggin' kidding!

    Lame maybe but for me it would be Buffy - as in The Vampire Slayer (tv series not movie). Any role where the woman is kickin butt would be cool for me.

        I think so, too. Would make a brilliant screenplay, I must say. A horror flick based on MJ's ghost. I must get on this immediately. My mind is racing.

    For me I would want to play one of my own characters in a movie, one that I dreamt up, wrote and breathed into life, one that will of course kick butt in either a fantasy, a mystery, or a horror movie.
