    LitNet Forums: The Movie

    Stephen Spielberg has purchased rights to LitNet and production begins on The LitNet Movie this coming Monday. No expense will be spared in the making of this inevitable blockbuster!

    The question that I need you to answer is: Who plays you in the film?

    It can be any celebrity that you choose, living or dead, at any point in their career. (Like I said, no expense spared... Raising the dead and time travel don't come cheap!)

    A picture of your choice will help the casting people immensely if you can...



    I'm going to choose Zach Galifianakis

    Anyone can put on glasses. I don't know if the age is right, but how about Gabrielle Anwar?

    For me, probably Timothy Hutton, since a long time ago an old lady on the bus mistook me for him.

    A surly older Marlon Brando would be ideal... although a bit more hair might be in order. I haven't quite yet got to that state:

    Sorry, no.

    I meant to mention that in the original post.... This is to be a star studded film, nobody "playing themselves" unless that person has been in a starring role of at least two feature films already.

    How about Stother Martin for me since I've been told I do a pretty good imitation of his "failure to communicate" line

    If Woody Allen could be persuaded to do a passable English accent, I fear that would be me cast...

    I would go for a young Michael J. Fox playing a young me
    and an older Michael J. Pollard playing the finished product.
    Maybe it was the other way around. It really wouldn't matter.

    Bags I Peter O Tool, although I might be an inch or two shorter but his diction is/was perfect. If I can't have him then it'll have to be John Hurt.

    This is actually a pretty good description of me, too, hehe. Let me see. Maybe Catherine Keener. The kind of haphazardness she displayed in Lovely and Amazing kind of reminds me of myself.

    Who plays you in the film?
    No one, alas. Yours fooly is the proverbial face on the cutting room floor.
