Who plays you in the movies?

Okay, you’re a character in a movie. Who plays you?

Will and I discussed this very thing this morning. His suggestions: Chris Pratt and Aubrey Plaza; Nick Offerman and Megan Mullally. (Why yes, we DO watch Parks and Recreation. Why do you ask?) I don’t know that either of these is perfect, but I sure like the idea of either lady playing me!

Now I am wondering about the ideal casting for everyone else I know.

Won’t you tell me who would play you?

(For the sake of this game, the movie version of you should be somewhere between who you really are and who you wish you are. And if you’re an actor, no fair saying you’d play yourself.)

    Julianne Moore… wait… no, she’s just who I hope I look like in 20 years. Felicia Day or the girl who plays Lizzie in the Lizzie Bennet Diaries (which I have recently become obsessed with).

    Lena Dunham. I mean, granted, I haven’t actually seen her act, but I saw her on Jon Stewart and she seemed like a lovely person and also she looks EXACTLY LIKE ME, hair and body-type-wise. So.

    I would love Maggie Gyllenhaal, but I’ll settle for Katie Holmes.

    Once on a good day, I was compared to Neve Campbell. On a bad day, I was compared to Kathy Bates. So I’m going to go completely against type and say Amy Poehler or Aisha Tyler.

    We have this conversation often! I think we’ve settled on Alyson Hannigan playing me. Zooey Dechanel could probably pull it off, too, but we don’t resemble eachothre in the least. It’s just that she can do the “cute but crazy” thing.

    Lately I’ve been thinking that Ryan Gosling should play David – he can totally pull off the mix of serious yet bizarrely goofy!

    I couldn’t think of anyone so I tried a “Which celebrity do you look like?” generator a few times. My closest match is apprently James Spader, so fuck you, generator.

    Anyway, I’m choosying Alyson Hannigan, since we’re almost the same height, and share the ginge.

    Zach Galifianakis. He could totally pull it off.
