Imagine an unrestricted timeline (old and new actors)

If a movie was made about your life, which actors would play you and which actors would play the people who are closest to you?

Me: Michelle Williams could play both my serious and quirky sides

If a movie was made about your life, which actors would play you and which actors would play the people who are closest to you?

My daughter: Alison Porter, from Curly Sue. She looks exactly like my daughter.

If a movie was made about your life, which actors would play you and which actors would play the people who are closest to you?

Sister: Aubrey Plaza as her character from Parks and Rec, except add some additional intellect

If a movie was made about your life, which actors would play you and which actors would play the people who are closest to you?

Brother: Rainn Wilson as Dwight Schrute from The Office but less nerdy looking.

If a movie was made about your life, which actors would play you and which actors would play the people who are closest to you?

Mom: Allison Janney and her character in Juno. This was the hardest one to choose but she was a very "tell it like it is" type of person like this character.

If a movie was made about your life, which actors would play you and which actors would play the people who are closest to you?

Dad: Tim Allen from Last Man Standing plus a bit of Liam Neeson from Taken

Best friend: Kristen Wigg's character from Bridesmaids

Grandma: Jessica Walter as Lucille Bluth from Arrested Development but not rich.

Who would play you and the people closest to you?

    Damn, gurl, this is haaard.

    I could imagine Kate Winslet playing me. I've liked every performance she's done post-Titanic (which I wasn't that into, it was more of a visual stunner but dialogue mostly too cliche for me - I'm not a James Cameron fan.) I like her beautiful mix of strength and compassion. I am neutral on her looks but I think she is a great specimen of a woman, a great representation of the best of a woman (I just watched her in Contagion for the second time. Very nice job.)

    I want to be friends with Robin Wright-Penn. (Same comment as above. In fact, the two roles could easily be swapped.) Leslie Mann - she's so incredibly funny and goofy, and gorgeous and she would be good for my playful side. Then Marion Cottilard and I have absolutely nothing in common except for perhaps being thinkers, but I always liked people who were quite different than me, so her French accent and dark hair would sort of be the perfect physical antithesis of me (I learned French in school like a good Canadian girl but I am not really fluent), and I absolutely love her elegance.

    I would want Meryl Streep to play my mother. Again, nothing whatsoever in common, but Meryl's the gutsy, confident, sharp as a tack version, and she could dig into my mother and really understand her (or I could explain it all to her), and would add all the layers of depth necessary.

    I love Steve Carell. He should be my daddy. (I would date him irl though.) I love his mix of humour and intense, yet unforced sadness. He really 'gets' life. Again, no connection physically, except that he knows humour, and so does my dad. He has lightness mixed in with his depth. Looks-wise, my dad is a bit of a combination of Robert Redford (blonde, weathered, unvenly tanned outdoorsman) and maybe a little Sean Penn (smoking scruff monster), with the same passion for nature as Bear Grylls (minus the hardcore life-threatening stuff.)

    My sister could be Martha Plimpton (mixed with Scarlett Johanssen - she loves her.)

    And let's add in a husband! Ryan Gosling or Jake Gyllenhaal. Yum yum. (No connection but a girl can fantasize.) I had a dream a few weeks ago that Adam Driver as an uncostumed Kylo Ren of Star Wars and I were on the run from someone trying to kill us. He is a very capable protector, fyi. 😉

    That was fun. I'll stop now. I could spend much more time on this but I shouldn't.

      Marion Cottilard is sooooo stunning and such a good actress, minus the one death scene that we don't need to talk about. ❤❤

      Great list!! I asked my sister to confirm most of mine, so otherwise it would have taken much longer.

    My mother: Queen Latifah

  • ChiTown33
    Interesting that you'd pick a serious actor ( well i guess MW had comedic roles in her younger years). While the rest of your family all comedic actors.
    For me i'm going to have to think about this a bit.
    • Anonymous

      LOL I guess you're right... I didn't realize that... I almost did a comedian for myself too. My brother says I'm exactly like Zooey Deschanel's character Jess from New Girl (not lookswise). But my sister said I'm more extreme like Jennifer Coolidge's (Stifler's mom actress) character in Austenland, which I haven't seen. Sooooo maybe I'm on the wrong track. I was thinking both serious and quirky...

    I've been waiting for a question that will help me through self isolation and this is the one! Give me a few hours/days and I'll see what I can come up with. Disclaimer... it may not be pretty lol
    • Anonymous

      It took me a while to form this question and come up with my answers. Looking forward to it!

    • AndrewMG

      @SydneySentinel So I had a mate who after seeing a Spider-Man movie thought Toby Maguire could pull off my mixture of semi-confidence/awkwardness and also look slightly younger than he actually was. Now I've not had many enemies in my life, I'm annoyingly laid back, so the first nemesis of mine I can think of was a fire steward at a bar I worked at who had a problem with me propping a door open (now he was clearly in the right here so I feel guilty) but he had a moustache and figure that clearly looked like Nick Offerman from Parks and Recreations, so he's going to play the part of my sworn enemy! Should I continue? lol

  • ShadowofRegret
    Hmm, interesting question! But also really hard since I don't really know many actors...😅 (or many people for that matter...) maybe I would say...Me - Jang Hyuk
    He doesn't look 'exactly' like me, but we have some similar traits.

    I am not going to say about my father since I doubt he would like that too much...
  • ManOnFire
    I think Will Smith could probably play me pretty well. Not sure who could play my brother or my mother though, they would probably have to be 'unknown' actors.

    If your sister looks anything like that then she is hot lol - but so is Michelle Williams now, especially in All the Money In the World. Sexy as fuck in that movie.

    Joaquin Phoenix would play me.
    My best friend would be played by Jason Lee.
    My little brother would be played by Jake Thomas (aka Matt McGuire).
    My dad would be played by Clint Eastwood.
    • AmandaYVR

      I'd watch that based on Joaquin being in there - ooh la la. He's a handful, but so talented.

    • Jamie05rhs

      @AmandaYVR Thanks! I picked him because everyone says I look like him.

  • Robertcw
    Hmm. The actors I'd try to get to play me would be Aston Kutcher, Noah Centineo or Brad Pitt. They're most similar to how I look, and to my personality.

    As for the people closest to me? That's interesting. I don't really have anyone like that. The movie would have to be a montage told from the perspective of a single person with a world shifting around him.

    Would probably be an artistic movie, actually. Lots of external changing.
    • Robertcw

      Okay not brad pitt. He looks more like how my dad looks than me.

      Awesome!! That sounds like a great style of filming. Are you a movie buff? Or movie production buff?

    Nobody would want to make that movie!! I haven't done anything, or worth a self-published book, let alone a 'straight to online' movie of my life.
    I'm just that average kind of guy that is too smart, and knows too many things, and makes people uncomfortable, without intending that, just because I remember cool, odd facts, and some are impressed, and think I am brilliant!! Love the compliment, but I'm not anything anyone would want to ever bother writing a book about!
    But I'm fine with that, and I am, who I am, and content.

And this all is only good way satire as some create smile at mine face and sometime think as this stupidity some can think. So this all have some reason im just wait what be contiened

    Boyfriend: Leonardo DiCaprio because they look similar and my boyfriend really likes him.

    I don't know about my family but I guess the movie would be bad romcom about a girl who has a bad family and is bullied and suddenly gets thrown into the world of "normal" people life and has to adjusts to having someone she cares about (being my boyfriend) and learning about new feelings and such. With the villain of the story being those who are against her leaving her safe zone
