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.
