Casting Decisions

Who would play you in the movies or on TV?

I'm thinking this guy Jordan Bridges would be a pretty good pick to play me. He's a decent actor (last role I saw him in is as a Video Game developer on Law and Order: Criminal Intent) and he's got the dark hair and droopy eyes and narrow lips (although his ears are probably way too big...). On Law and Order he wore a beard like I wear now and looked identical to my self-image. Well, optimistic self-image. I think my second choice would be Nicholas BrendanNicholas Brendan. Anyway, who would play you on TV?

Here's another question: Who would play one of your favorite actors in a biographical film? Who would play the part of Harrison Ford, or Tom Cruise, or Toshiro Mifune, or Cate Blanchette? Here's a real-life example: Jason Scott Lee played Bruce Lee (no relation) in Dragon: The Bruce Lee Story. Jennifer Love Hewitt played Audrey Hepburn on TV. Jim Carrey played Andy Kaufman. You get the picture...

Bethanne told me last night she'd pick "Weird" Al Yankovic to play me. I suppose she has a good point there, but I don't know if he's that great an actor. I mean, he was funny in UHF, but that was just him acting silly.

And is it me, or did he use to have red hair? I think it's me. Maybe he dyed it...
Keanu might do a good job for me. Nicholas Brendan would probably justify me, too.
I've thought about this before, and for some reason I've always known that John Cusack would be perfect for playing me.
