I’m Like Margaret Cho on Ritalin
Via Dustbury, here are some questions for you readers to ponder:
1. If you were to make a movie of your favorite character(s) in a book series…what actor(s) would you choose to play them, and why?
I am not one of those people who has to visualize characters as Famous People. I’d like to think I have more imagination than that. I also don’t particularly like reading books belonging to a series. When it comes to multiple books, I’m a commitment-phobe. So I’ll have to dig back further to when I was a kid–I was really into Lloyd Alexander. He’s the guy who wrote the Chronicles of Prydain, but The Black Cauldron was already made into a movie. So I’ll go with his Adventure series starring Vesper Holly, a sort of female Indiana Jones. Vesper is nothing like Laura Croft in Tomb Raider so I’d have to pick someone like Meg Ryan.
2. If you were to make a movie of your favorite blog author (based on what you read there), what actor/actress would you choose to play that author? (you may choose more than one if you like)
Hm. I don’t have a favorite blog author, but here are two that I came up with off the top of my head.
Dustbury – Jack Nicholson (as I’ve posted in his comments)
Pharyngula – Harrison Ford (with a beard)
It’s actually sort of hard trying to pair up an actor/actress with a blogger–I mean, a blogger is so individual and representing them with someone who can only pretend to be them seems so insipid.
