  4. Although we look nothing alike: Judy Davis. She's stupendous.

  6. Meryl Streep. She is so gifted and extraordinarily talented that I'm sure she can pull off playing a man.

    1. You love high cheekbones?

  7. Meryl Streep . . .
    I think she could play a “perfect me” with all my complexities.

    I also agree . . .
    She is xtremely talented and I am sure she could probably
    pull it off playing a man.

  8. Do you mean play in your film? I'm too new for a speaking part so I'll be an extra - I pick a glamorous beauty like Hedy Lamarr and she will drape over furniture in the background miming "Rhubarb Rhubarb" wearing the pick of the costume department's frocks and hats.

    If it's my film then I bags silent actress Alla Nazimova! I want it to be a silent film and then everyone can have fun prancing around over-acting and miming "Rhubarb Rhubarb".

  9. In my younger years, I would have liked Maureen O’Hara, now it’s more Bette Midler.

  10. Oh crumbs! It would be way too boring to bother with! However, to play along with the idea, maybe Larry Olivier could lift it out of the humdrum.

    1. Btw: Yes, I KNOW he's been dead for decades, but at least that would give it some added interest.

    2. Lawrence Olivier can still out act most of Hollywood...even while dead!

    3. Raymondo , only the best

    4. When Sir Larry was at his best (i.e. for most of his life) he was literally THE best. No one could even come close!

  13. Joanna Lumley. She bears no resemblance whatsoever to me, but it's how I'd like people to think of me!

  14. As a kid, I watched Bogart in the role of Father O'Shea --"The Left Hand Of God"-- and figured he could do justice to any character, even mine, and my opinion has not changed.

  16. In my dreams, Emma Thompson. In reality it would probably be Janine Duviski.

  17. Gena Davis in The Long Kiss Goodnight then, Gena Rowland now.

  18. Bette Davis, I'm a soft touch, so her edge would add to my character.

  19. I am still (and always have been) Audrey Hepburn inside my head - but realistically I never was!

    Marlene Dietrich. In absence of the wildly sophisticated and sardonic Dietrich, child actress Shirley Temple will do - what with the rosy cheeks, the curly hair, the exuberance ...

  21. Dorothy Atkinson: her role in ‘Mr. Turner’ as his faithful adoring housekeeper should have won her an oscar, but sadly didn’t.

  22. There would be only one actor in the world capable of playing my complex angst-filled role effectively - me!
    "Yorkshire Pudding - The Movie" starring Yorkshire Pudding as Yorkshire Pudding, sponsored by The Yorkshire Pudding Company.

    If she were still alive, Patty Duke. Short in stature, square jaw, blue eyes, capable of being goofy (her acting, my natural state sometimes) but also serious. I don't have her comic timing, but I thankfully also do not have her bipolar disorder, something that several members of my extended family do battle.

  42. oh for sure Tracey Ullman. But she will have to train to use a compound bow, face off big bears & bigots and learn how to ride a mustang...but Im pretty sure she already knows how, AND with humor. :D

  47. When I was young, I was told I looked like a young Gina Lollabrigida. Now? a slightly chubby Isabella Rossillini.

    Managed to lose five pound by getting a straight day shift job. Night shifts were killing me, evenings were just as bad. My shift cycle had killed my body.

  51. Interesting question, Jon. One that asks more than it seems....who is the person you are, or who you want to be...do you imagine who you are and was. And why.
    No idea, and actually no interest. I'd be more interested in see who people who actually are and will be....love to see my girls in 25 years, my son the same.
    I know who I was, what I did. I don't need anyone to fluff it up or deflate it. It was what it was.

    Cheers, pal.
    Mike

  53. I hope I'd need someone spunky and sporty for the early years, but I'm afraid the older me requires a somewhat Humpty Dumpty figure...sort of a Emma Stone becomes a chunky Angela Lansbury. Interesting question as most of your questions are!
