Fantasy Cast List – Double Date

5 04 2013

When you are in an established relationship, it is important to have at least one couple in your life with whom you can enjoy double dates.

FFOMC and I enjoy spending time with a like-minded couple who have similiar interests to us.

We have known them for years. The boys met when they worked together many moons ago and have remained good friends ever since. When I trained as a teacher Cathie was on the same course. We take it in turns to invite each other over for dinner at our respective homes and get quite competitive with our theme nights: Italian, 70’s, Spanish being some that have featured in the past. We enjoy the odd BBQ together have plans of potential trips we can take and the four of us have even been on holiday together twice now.

They are valued friends who would have to put in an appearance in the movie version of my life and the actors I have selected to play them are:

Good friend and gentle giant Lawson would be portrayed by rugged Sean Bean.

Fairuza Balk has the edgy sexiness that characterises good friend Cathie.

Fantasy Cast List – Our Best Man

2 04 2013

FFOMC’s oldest friend has had his say on the actor responsible for playing him in the movie version of my life.

He is a quirky individual with a fantastic sense of humour but he is also a sensitive sole. At our wedding he told a story about his childhood and in particular one day at school on his birthday. He was playing with his new transformers toy in the school assembly only to have it confiscated by the head teacher.

FFOMC apparently decided to sneek into the headteachers office and reclaim the confiscated toy.

While this did not prevent it being confiscated for a second time it did ensure that their friendship has stood the test of time.

He should therefore be played by a pretty cool guy who is deep down a big softie, enter Neil Patrick Harris:

Neil Patrick Harris portrayal of our very own 'wannabe Barney'  would be legend-wait for it-dary!

Fantasy Cast list – My Part Time Job

14 03 2013

After much discussion a few arguements and some tears on Saturday morning we have agreed on our fantasy cast list.

On a side note I am loving how evocative this topic is – everyone I have spoken to has been totally engaged in the discussion and it has created a spirit of debate with everyone I know insisting on having their say and making their case for their favourite celebrity versions of themselves.

This week my part time collegaues made their voices heard and the results are as follows:

THE “BOSS”:

Richard O'Brien of Crustal Maze and The Rocky Horror Picture Show is the perfect choice for our wacky and loveable leader.

THE SINGING TEACHER:

Bright and bubbley Bette captured the vivacious personality of our wonderful Singing teacher and Queen of Cheese.

THE DANCE TEACHER:

Funny Girl Barbara Streisand would perfectly capture our Dance Teachers wacky personality!

THE TEACHING ASSISTANT:

Long Suffering Betty Spencer (played by Michele Dotrice) captures perfectly the sense of patience and common sense that are required by our lovely  teaching assistant.

THE UNIFORM MAN:

Cyber Stalker and straight talking Andy (who frequently comments on my Blog topics) would be played by grumpy comic Jack Dee.

THE VOLUNTEER:

The cool and stylish Gwyneth Paltrow would be perfect as our very own girl racer and curtain manager.

There are of course many minor characters who could be added at a later date (with their permission of course).

I am speaking of the PHOTOGRAPHER, the HOT DAD, the SHOW BIZ MUM and many others who make a regular appearance and without them my Saturdays may be totally empty!

Fantasy Cast List

17 02 2013

I have often fantasised that the story of my life will one day form the basis for a major hollywood blockbuster. Obviously I am hopeful that this will be before my death so I can benefit from the royalties. But the BIG question is always the same – who would get to play ‘me” and the other characters needed to dramatise my life story?

After some discussion tonight about this very issue I decided to open this topic up for an online discusion.

It doesnt matter whether you are a major or minor player in my personal life story; I am asking this question of those I spend most of my waking minutes as well as the people who serve me my daily latte, and the bloggers who take the time to read what I have written and make insightful comments about my daily posts. It doesnt matter if you would be be the main protagonist or a walk on cameo in the movie version of my life; I just want to know what actor would play you and why you feel they would be qualified to play the role?

Please leave your comments below but be sure to include the following:

1/ The full name of the actor who would play ‘you’.

2/ A link to a picture of the actor in the film where they best capture your personality.

3/ A justification of your choice.

There are two possible candidates for the role of ‘me’ so far: Reese Witherspoon. and Anna Friel

I have been told that I share certain mannerisms and facial expressions with both actresses and share some of their personality traits.  I would argue that I am not as ‘polished’or beautiful as either of these actresses but I can understand why some people can see some resemblance. Aside from their appearance, I like that neither of these actreses are particularly contraversial but are down to earth and seem real in the midst of all the pressure and hype that is associated with ‘celebrity’.

Please leave you comments about your own casting preferences and feel free to make suggestions about actors for other ‘characters’. If you do know me personally, be aware that I may have my own ideas and you may wish to get in first before I publish my own dream casting of ‘you’!

If this post has inspired you you may even consider what the cast list of a film version of your own live might look like!

I will publish my Cast list at a later date based on the responses I get – or if needs be my personal thoughts.
