With the possibility of my life being made into a movie one day (ha ha), I have prepared a casting list for my some of my family. (Just to help the producers out.)
Is this something everyone else thinks about in their spare time..?
The actors who will play me, my parents, brother and significant other must have some physical similarities to the actor portraying them, as well as having the ability to bring their characters to the screen believably.
Here are my decisions below. Please let me know in the comments section or on Facebook who you’d want to have play you!
Most importantly, the protagonist: Me. Now, I have thought long and hard about this and I’ve decided on two options: Emily Blunt or Saoirse Ronan. Saoirse is my age and Emily has similar colouring to me, so I’d be happy with either.
My mum. As already discussed in a previous post, Dianne Wiest or Julie Walters would be my top choices.
My dad. Back in the day, David Schwimmer would have fitted nicely. Today, while Mark Williams (who plays Mr. Weasley in the Harry Potter films) could be a good option, unfortunately they don’t look very similar. Alan Rickman was a solid contender – another Harry Potter actor – but he’s obviously permanently unavailable now. Michael Caine is too old now… Ah! Jerry Seinfeld. Yes. Jerry. 100%.
My brother. He has a massive beard, which has influenced my decision significantly. Therefore, there was merely one option: Zach Galifianakis. Is he nearly twice my brother’s age? Yes. But prosthetics are a wonderful thing.
My significant other. He would hate me to include a photo of him, but I can safely say that Ryan Gosling would be an accurate choice… If Ryan was a bit better-looking haaaaaa.
