Title: Who Should Play YOU, In the Movie of Your Life?
Post by: Solomon Zorn on March 19, 2017, 08:40:03 PM
You can pick up to five: childhood you; adolescent you; adult you; middle-aged you; and old you.

Childhood: any cute kid who can act.
Adolescence: any cute star who can act.
Adult: any cute star who can act.
Middle-aged: Tom Welling.
Old: any gracefully aging star who can act.

As you can see, I do not pay too much attention to stars of any age.

Ernest Hemingway could play me at my current age, with him at the equivalent age.  I don't know if he would be a good fit at earlier corresponding ages, but I think he might.

I was under the impression the OP meant current actors for each of our stages in life; i.e, a current young actor to play us as our young self.

Well Ernest isn't even an actor, just a Nobel Prize winning writer.  His granddaughter Mariel Hemingway is an actress, but she doesn't wear a beard ;-)r

The  Suicide Squad could play the late teens/early twenties me. It would take all of them.

I don't really care who plays me, as long as it's directed by the Coens.  And if you need someone to play what I'll look like in about thirty years, get Adam West.

Walter Brennan (http://cscottrollins.blogspot.com/2012/09/the-many-faces-of-walter-brennan-he-was.html#!/2012/09/the-many-faces-of-walter-brennan-he-was.html), just because I like him so much. He doesn't look like me, though - does that matter?
I liked the movie Goodbye My Lady (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Good-bye,_My_Lady_(film)) quite a bit. He's played a lot of very good roles, mostly as a bit character.

I remember him in The Real McCoys ;-)  Somebody who represents your character, is a better choice than someone who looks like you ... so why not a character actor? ;-)
