Comments: Casting Call

No offense to Janeane at all. I always thought she was cute, actually.

And I'm voting for...Bill Paxton. If you were Dennis Quaid, I'd have to play myself so we could write in an affair to "Hollywoodize" things.

Heh. I don't think Mrs. L. would approve of that story line...

I'm still going with the Dennis Quaid option.

Although, if you threw McConaughey on that list, I might be forced to throw in a changeup.

That's funny. I almost included McConaughey on the list, but he's just too frikkin' weird (naked bongo drum dancing with another guy??) I included fellow Dallasite Owen Wilson for that offbeat option. (I like him and Paxton best of the options I presented).

Yeah, I understand where you're coming from with McConaughey. But still...Owen? His nose is just goofed to hell and back. Honestly. What's the point of living in Beverly Hills if you don't bother to get your nose fixed? It's like ignoring all the beggars in Calcutta: he's ruining the local economy! ;) Unfortunately, I'm not really all that fond of Bill Paxton, so I can't go for that option or Tommy Lee Jones, either.

Dennis is still the fave.

I guess I'm not thinking about looks quite as much as personality. I think the sardonic, laid-back styles of Owen and Bill fit my mental image of this site. YMMV, of course.

I was thinking more along the lines of Sofia Vergara for me. It does mean taking a few liberties with the script, but I think the end result will be worth it.

Would those script liberties be along the lines of The Crying Game or There's Something About Miriam?

So we need to identify your voice. Hmm. An intelligent man who talks a lot about space, powerful flying machines, and women from outer space. Clearly Tommie Lee Jones from MIB.

Either that or the Obnoxious Older Brother of Bill Paxton in Weird Science.

Well, not only am I in good company, you picked a very flattering stand in for me! Thanks, John!

I've always thought Bill Paxton is hot.

You've never struck me as crusty enough to be Tommy Lee Jones, so I'm gonna go with Paxton too. Helen Hunt will be over in a wet t-shirt and sports bra directly.

does anyone here think bill paxton and dennis quaid look alike? I mean, you can tell a difference but i still think they do. I guess the question is only relevant because they are both mentioned on here, and i have been to texas before...
