I was watching TV last night and think I'd like to be portrayed by Johnny Knoxville

I feel the need to highlight the times I spent falling over and getting kicked inna forks.

The resemblance is uncanny!



For me, I'd go with:

Not for the movie, just in general.

Well, was it really so difficult to say this in your first post, so we wouldn't have to guess?

P.S. I changed my mind. I want Kevin Spacey to play me.

If the actor gets to play me on the screen, do I get to fill in for the actor in real life?
If yes, then Michael Douglas

I can tell few scenes from my life right away
I get up in the morning and see myself in the mirror and talk to myself with " You talking to me?...."

I think, only Bob De Niro can imitate me.. no one else..

What do you mean lopsided?
Do you know whom he has married?

Yes, i know who he married ....and therefore... I dont think any sane person would be tempted to trade "CZJ" for enacting you!

In the movie Pee Wee's Big Adventure, a Hollywood producer made a movie about Pee Wee's life. In the movie-in-a-movie, Pee Wee was played by James Brolin, and his friend Dotty was played by Morgan Fairchild.

In that spirit, I'd get Harrison Ford to play me.

For me it'd have to be Brad Pitt's brother called Arm. He's not that well known.

I've reconsidered and decided Christian Bale should definitely play me, because this is exactly how I always treat my team members (WARNING: this clip contains "some" profanity, so it may not be entirely SFW).

On a funny note, my wife told me yesterday that a patient in her ward at the hospital she works at (She is a Registered Dietician), has such a guy who had Tom Cruise play him in the movie about his life.

The movie was "Born on the Fourth of July"

I'm just afraid that I wouldn't have much control over it -- and that the producers would choose Rick Moranis.

I have to admit, David Fincher has been hounding me for a chance to direct a film about my life, and Brad Pitt would jump at the chance to play me, so I might just give in and let them go for it.

I didn't know they were going to make a movie about my life. Don't I have any say in these things? I guess I don't. So who can I talk to about getting a cut of the royalties?

Its hard to say even if an all time academy awards winner can play me.
But if we dont try we won't know.
So lets choose Tom Hanks and see how good he can do.
