Casting a movie is hard work

Being as this blog is eventually going to turn into a book and subsequently a major motion picture I thought it might be a good idea to start pondering who would play me, and those who play essential roles in my ramblings and tall tales.

Let’s start with the star of this flick, Me. According to The Gray Lining the ideal person to play me in a movie about my life is Wanda Sykes.

In a strange way I was flattered because Wanda Sykes is hilarious, I mean this woman has been ranked one of the 25 funniest people in America. However, I wonder if a 46 year old black woman would be best suited to play a 26 year old white country girl. I also received a suggestion of Natalie Portman, but was told by My BFF that she was too boring to play me. Honestly, I’m fairly confident that this particular suggestion came due to Portman’s willingness to shave her head for a role, and that she would probably rock a faux hawk pretty well. For the time being I’ll keep the casting call open.

To play My BFF was an easy choice…Joan Cusack.
Namely because My BFF said “just not Joan Cusack” and also because she is the ultimate best friend in any movie. When you read this Joan, holler at me and we’ll talk logistics.

The Gray Lining also has very particular ideas about who should play her in my movie. While she has selected a person almost twice my age to play me, she has deamed Evangeline Lilly to be the ideal person to play her.

Nice try The Gray Lining, but nay. You are a Zooey Deschanel whether you like it or not.

Evangeline Lilly is entirely too much of a bad ass to play you, but she may be the ideal actress to play The Future Mrs. My BFF/Rogue Hand. Congrats My BFF, on having a hot movie wife.


  1. I'll have you know that I sent this blog to Tim- this is his fault...If he had never opened his big mouth I would be hot in the movie....

  2. am I being played by a hobbit? because I really don't wanna be played by a hobbit

  3. I think you should allow me to choose an asian version of you....

  4. Who do you have in mind? We actually discussed having an asian play mols, but obviously joan cusack was the ultimate choice
