I guess this is a two-part question.
Who would you want to play you? Of all the screen legends I'd probably opt for Steve McQueen or one of the French New Wave actors like Alain Delon or Roger Duchesne, star of the criminally neglected classic Bob le flambeur [Bob the Gambler].
These actors had the art of being effortlessly cool precisely because they never consciously tried to be cool (although McQueen liked to show-off by upstaging his co-stars).
If a director had the casting vote who would they pick?
In my case I reckon they might choose Norman Wisdom in his prime, maybe Stan Laurel, anyone prone to the pratfall or misunderstanding.
What about you?
The guy who painted Blue Poles might be my choice but by the time my story gets interesting there will be a new slew of actors around so who knows. On second thoughts maybe I'd like someone like Basil Rathbone to play me. He did a great Sherlock Holmes and Holmes was always experimenting with the arts including writing. I am a bit of an historian as well as writer so that should be taken into account, too.
I don't think anyone would want to play me , so I most likley would be stuck as myself lol
Any of the "big dogs" of acting lol
If they picked I suppose it would be Brad Pitt jus cus I'm so good looking!
Audrey Hepburn she was elegant, classic and charming she carried herself gracefully and also had a great sense humor.
Well, I would have to say Jamie Lee Curtis. For years when I had short hair I was always told I could be her double
I wouldn't permit a film to be made of my life. Hence, the lead role would go to no one.
Oh ! It doesn't matter !
I'm sure it would be too boring !
I wouldn't go that far, but you're right it doesn't matter.
LOL< dont be mean to CAGSIL<, he can be like Russel Crowe, A Beautiful and Fertile Mind"
Makes sense...but what if they made an UNAUTHORIZED version? You know, 'cause you're so appealing to the public and the tabloids and the paparazzi, and they know they'd make gazillions....
As far as looks are concerned, I think I'd choose Tom Cruise, even though I don't like him. And he is only a tiny, tiny bit better looking than me. But would he manage the British accent?
The Director would probably choose a slimmed-down version of Rowan Atkinson ...
Hmm -- Tom would have to lose quite a bit of weight, too.
Alyssa Milano - I've been told by more than one person that we look somewhat similar. We are both Italian, native New Yorkers, same coloring (hair and eyes) - I think she'd be able to pull it off.
Who would you want to play you?
Angelina Jolie, I love that womans lips. But I want her curves back for the role. The emaciated look is not good on her.
If a director had the casting vote who would they pick?
I would WANT Phil Seymour Hoffman. I would probably get Jack Black.
They're all different ages, but Meg Ryan (because of "type" and age), Jennifer Aniston (type and coloring). Possibly Sally Field, if her hair were lightened or Kelly Martin (if it was about my earlier days). The casting person would probably go with Jennifer Aniston (or else an unknown, of course).
I would have to choose Heath Ledger to play myself. If only for the amazing job he did as the Joker.
However, if it wasn't my choice then the role would probably go to Jake Gyllenhaal (we look somewhat alike) or Steve Carell (we have a similar sense of humor).
Christina Ricci, Natalie Portman, Drew Barrymore, or Ellen Page
and Natalie Portman is a great director too! So is Drew Barrymore!
Well, it would have had to be Katherine Hepburn. The long brown hair/blue eye thing, and she was independent and classy in everything she did.
although this is going to make me sound very conceited, but i've often fantasized about my life as a movie, sometimes. not because i think it would be like a blockbuster or anything like that. Or that i have self deluded dreams of stardom and fame. No, i just think of how great it would be, so people could finally understand me as a person.
Personally, i wouldn't mind seeing either jeremy piven play me in a movie, since he's not a freaking super model, but he looks more like a regular average looking guy. which is basically what i am. im not a great looking guy, but im certainly not ugly either. So he already has that look about him. then as far as acting speed goes, he was able to play a conservative, nerdy, neurotic guy in the HBO FILM, "Don King: Only in America." Which fits my personality to a "T" in real life. That's why if i had to pick one actor to play me, then I would pick him out.
plus, to add to that. i can see my dad being played by burt young, since he not only has the same look but his portrayal of paulie, in the "Rocky" series, is exactly how my dad is in real life. Then I would cast michelle yeoh to play my mom. she doesn't look exactly like my mom, but i think she could pull it off since she is a great asian actress.
my brother and the rest of my friends i've met over the years that played key roles in my life, whether good or bad, i'll have to think about it.
Mos Def! He's a great actor and has a lot of qualities like myself.
Either Roseanne Barr or Kathy Bates. OR maybe Delta Burke would be a better choice since she has the Southern drawl.
So amazing! I was discussin this the other day with my sister - she said Reese Witherspoon would play me... interesting.
i think kirsten dunst would play my sister in law, since she looks some what like her.
I'd love it if Angelina Jolie would do the part. I don't care what the trash mags say about her, I think she's great.
I think Drew Barrymore would do a good job of me, but I doubt if she would find the role up to her usual quality. In reality it would probably have to be some B-grade total unknown, maybe an unknown porn-star! not because there'd be much sex or anything, but just because they would be willing to speak my ridiculous lines and there would be absolutely no plot! :

In the movie about your life, who would you cast in the leading role?This one is simple for me - it has to be Jim Carrey. We look alike and he's a complete goof-ball! How about you?

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...
