Strangers say I look like Kevin freakin' Dillon, but I'd want Nicky Katt to play me...cuz he's a sarcastic bad-ass. Smile

Short, brown hair, brown eyes, freckles. Can't really think of anyone. I do have a picture of me, ask and I'll send it to you... maybe you can make some suggestions, because I'm frikken clueless.

The only two guys who could have played me are John Belushi and Chris Farley. I will have to cast John Goodman to play my older version, but by then he will be too old...fine, I'll play myself...with myself...no, myself...what was the question?

I'll go with James Woods, though I'm a heck of a lot taller than he is.

Actually, I always looked a bit like Shaggy from the old Scooby cartoons. This is not a good thing.

My significant other said this weekend that he would cast John Leguizamo in the biopic of my life.

People used to say I looked just like Michael J. Fox in high school. Then in college I progressed to James Spader-like looks. Now, who the hell knows? Closest possible:

(I'm drawing a severe blank here, folks!)

At least John knows women. I saw Sexaholix this past summer, and John knows women better than most men and some women seem to.

My girlfriend says Tobey Maguire. Why? "You kind of look like him. And he was Spiderman."

I say Ray Liotta - not because of any resemblance, but because he needs a comeback, and I think the part of a nineteen year old struggling writer living on Ramen noodles and Camel Lights could be just the ticket.

I look like a younger Michael J. Fox, but I don't have a muscle problem. Dunno really.

I've wondered who could possibly play myself in a biopic. But I have come up with a good answer: Jack Black.

I'll go one further and cast my family as well.

If you read my profile (the regular one, not the forum one) you'd know who would play my mother: Geena Davis. Honest to God, dye her hair black and she looks like a younger version of Mom.

As for Dad, probably Edward Norton.

My brother Larry: Seann William Scott. His wife Dawn: Renee Zellweger.

My dearly departed sister Julie: Bridget Fonda. Her husband Chuck: Oliver Platt.

My bitchy first wife Marti: Drew Barrymore.

My fiancee (and wife as of June 7th) Kristi: Thora Birch.

ME: I've heard everyone from Drew Barrymore to Christina Ricci to Hilary Swank to Sara Rue. The truth? I'd go for Kate Winslet, circa Titanic. She's got the coloring, not to mention my propensity for gaining weight...and I'd personally love to hear her affect a Southern accent and say "motherfucker" a lot.

M'MOMMA: Kathy Bates, ain't no doubt about it. My mother's always admired her, plus the woman's just so damn chameleonic. She has the same warm smile and cool eyes, and I KNOW she could nail the tobacco-road voice.

M'POPS: This was by far the easiest call. Tommy. Lee. Jones. From Coal Miner's Daughter until now, he's reminded me of my father...particularly in that thundering-voice department. I mean, it's just short of uncanny.

MARTI, THE OLDER SISTER: Someone tall, dark, and exotic to offset my pasty white ass. Catherine Zeta-Jones is possible; Talisa Soto or Famke Janssen more likely.

COREY, THE YOUNGER BROTHER: No clue here. Some halfwitted WB reject, most likely. Though he kinda-sorta reminds me of Anthony Michael Hall in his post-Brat Pack limbo, for some ungodly reason.

MICHAEL, THE LOVER: Jason Lee, maybe a young Griffin Dunne or Mike Myers. Though I honestly don't think anyone could play Mikey like Mikey himself.

BARRY, THE BEST FRIEND: I think he looks like Nick Nolte--if Nick Nolte were 26 years old and weighed 300 pounds--but we'd probably have to go with Donal Logue or somebody like that.

SHELLEY, BARRY'S WIFE: Oh God, she just HAS to be played by Dina Meyer. She just HAS to. Well, if all else fails, I might settle for Christina Applegate. Might.

BRENT, THE COLLEGE CHUM: He's so Jack Black it's not even funny. Well, Jack Black with a subtle pinch of Brecken Meyer. And BUTTLOAD of body hair.

SARA, THE FORMER BEST FRIEND/QUINTESSENTIAL ARIES: She looks kind of like Michelle Williams spliced with Natalie Maines of the Dixie Chicks. Oh, if only...

You also have nice breasts?

I mean, Kate has nice breasts, so I guess you do too.

SCOTT: A) No, trust me, you do NOT want to meet my sister. Tall, dark, and exotic aside...she's married, a mother, approaching 40, and has had the same hairstyle since 19-fucking-87. Not to mention, she's, well, a redneck.

B) Well, by having more charm, wit and conceptual sex appeal than any other man she'd ever dated. Which I can personally vouch for...as not only did he get a Dina Meyer-ish wife, he also had a Kate Winslet/Drew Barrymore/Christina Ricci-ish prom date, if you get what I'm saying.

SLYDER: I've been told they're rather nice. However, I don't devote all that much thought to them.

I doubt that anybody could pull off playing Danielle in a movie. There isn't a woman in the world that can even come close to doing it. You can't expect somebody to be able to copy her imagination, her emotions, her creativity, her passion, and plus there's not an actress around that's as gorgeous as she is. I'd like to see her play herself in a movie. Hell, she could probably write and direct it as well. But that's just my opinion, and I'm nobody special, so I could be wrong.
