Biopic casting

Monday, May 31, 2010 5:30 PM By Simon

I, being a hypothetical person (and, yes, that means I am typing this in theory, just like my existence is but a theory), like to toil away in my head whaty established actor might play a given person within history. For instance:

Diane Arbus. Now, who do you think would play her, physically and/or acting wise? Yes, I am aware that Nicole Kidman played her in Fur, but that was a leap, y'know? More to service the story than any real resemblance. Here, in the face, if we touted her down a bit:

Yes. Scarlett Jo-whatserface. Seriously, have her lose the makeup, smile, and give her a butch haircut, it just might work, dammit. Now, we'll have to work on the acting side of it...

So, my pretties, who would you cast as who?

Ooh, they DO look alike...I think if they made it a comedy, Scarjo could maybe handle it...haha.

As for my own biopic choice? How about...Cate Blanchett as George Washington? Yeah, that would be interesting. (As you can see, I'm a bit short on ideas)

slightly off-topic but I watched Fur with a 100-odd degree fever and it screwed with my head (though wolf-Robert Downey Jr played a large part in that)

Robert: Cate jove, you may be onto something!

SugaryCynic: Well then, next time you get a fever, steer far from David Lynch. I had the flu when I first watched Eraserhead, and I'm still not sure what exactly I hallucinated.

I like the idea of Viggo Mortensen playing just seems to fit

Hey I know this is off topic but I was wondering if you knew of any widgets I could add
to my blog that automatically tweet my newest twitter
updates. I've been looking for a plug-in like this for quite some time and was hoping maybe you would have some experience with something like this. Please let me know if you run into anything. I truly enjoy reading your blog and I look forward to your new updates.

Hey there would you mind letting me know which web
host you're working with? I've loaded your blog in 3 different
internet browsers and I must say this blog loads a lot quicker then most.
Can you recommend a good internet hosting provider at a honest price?

Thanks a lot, I appreciate it!
