Moooovie Stars! [Feb. 7th, 2009|01:54 pm]
Lucy




Here's how I would do it, in magical fantasy land!
(This was so fun.)


My mom, played by Sissy Spacek


My dad, played by Robert Redford


John, played by Simon Pegg


Nelly, played by Amanda Seyfried


David, played by (young) Alfred Molina


And me. What?
In the end, I couldn't decide on an actress who actually looked like me, so I gave up.
Any ideas?

Oooh I love your casting for everyone else! What a cute comparison!

I do not know anyone who looks like you, actress or not! :(

That might be because I am weird looking!
But thank you! It was totally fun making this.

ideas!

I always think about things like this, which is even more lame considering there is definitely no movie biopic in my future.

That said, I could see either Hermione-girl or Sarah Polley!!

Re: ideas!

There's a wonderful series of books by C.D. Payne (well, actually any book by CD Payne) which alway compares its characters to movie stars, and the characters compare other characters to movie stars. I absolutely love it, and totally do it all the time at some level. I think it's crazy fun.

Nice choices! I don't know any actresses who look like you, either. Maybe you should play yourself?

Maybe Ellen Page for you? You've got similar noses anyways.

That was my initial thought, too - she'd totally go for the role, too, and she's quirky enough.

Siri, are you willing to put on like 30 lbs and get like a foot shorter and grosser? Because then you are totally IN.

I wouldn't have thought of it before, but going with that photo, what about Lauren Ambrose?

Haha yeah! Totally! Especially when she was in "Can't Hardly Wait," and had kinda a chubface and silly haircut-- she totally looks like 22 yr old me!

Also John looks more like Ryan Gosling to me, not to give the dude a big head or anything.

The problem with Ryan Gosling as John is that RG looks EERILY like John's brother, who's a little taller and stretchier than John, and has a very different personality, so somehow RG will always just look exactly like Tyler, and could never look like John for me, because he's TYLER.
It's weird.

Thanks! I'm pretty excited about it, but a totally confused as to how it would happen.
And I like Ellen Page-- she's a-ok by me.

oh and for hilarity's sake;

John played as Vandamn.
Nelly as paris Hilton.
Yourself as... Alyson Hannigan.

Errrmmmm, and your parents? Im not sure (in not so great at older actors/actresses). Maybe an aged Nathan Fillion and a saucy older Starbuck? (forgot her name).

Oh sure, the girls get to pick Hollywood hotties to play them, but the when guy wants to be played by sexy vampire dude he gets gets stuck with a hobbit instead?

I would vote for your drawings to be animated like they did for Persepolis:http://www.sonypictures.com/classics/persepolis/

... ooh, better yet, your drawings animated by Terry Gilliam!

wow! having someone even consider buying the movie rights to something you've created must be incredible! also, these were amazing comparisons. i've done this with friends before and have never gotten anywhere near these kinds of results :)

Well, my mom and dad were easy, but the rest took many a google image search. Thank you!
And yeah, it's really cool to have someone interested in movie rights!

Omg i love the idea!

Your dad also kind of reminds me of Christopher Reeve in his heyday.

For John, what about Dominic Monaghan

You are just too cute :B
I think so far the best would be Lauren Ambrose

Oh yeah! Totally! Both the Chris Reeve thing and the Dominic Moneghan thing! Dominic is a little too SERIOUS and ROUND-HEADED for John, but still... I would like it.
