Lottie has tagged me with the movie of your life meme. I think I saw people doing this ages ago but I never partook. Well consider that fixed.
1. List the people who would play you, and the people in your life.
2. Give credit to the person who tagged you. That’d be Lottie mentioned above.
3. Link your answers to the original blog, that’s http://www.iRamble.co.uk
4. Tag four new people to participate.
To play me:
Despite what the ladies seem to think from the burlesque shenanigans, I wouldn’t pick any of the Bond actors. Well, maybe Daniel Craig. I’d be thinking more along the lines of Michael J Fox, Zach Braff, John Cusack or Topher Grace. Actually James McEvoy would probably be bang on. Always had a lot of respect for that guy, he seems decent and hard-working.
For my brother I’d probably pick a young Ewan Mc Gregor or someone like that. Ethan Hawke would be a good fit as well. For my mum it’d be someone like Meryll Streep. Strong, considered and loving. Hmmm. Tom Hanks for my da although he looks like John Cleese.
I’ll go all out on this one and choose a good few friends I’ve left out a couple cos I can’t figure out ones for them. 🙂
Marshall Matters would be apt for Dave since he used to look like him plus he can sorta act. Jake Gyllenhaal for Mark. Darren’s pick of Ryan Phillippe for himself would probably be near on. Mr Doyle is a difficult one to pick but I’d go for Robin Williams or Gene Wilder. Lottie’s self pick of Nicole Kidman I’d agree with. She seems to have that cheeky character. Jim Carey for DarDar cos he’s kooky.
Like RP my movie would need a montage where my character goes through some type of bootcamp. A trip to Vegas would also be involved (ala Swingers) and whatever else the director saw fit to include.
A lot of the people I know have already been tagged but I’ll tag three:
One reply on “Return to Zihuatenejo: Shawshank 2”
McEvoy – spot on! And Wilder for Doyle would be perfect.
