View Full Version : If you could be a TV/Movie character, who would you choose?

Knowing what you know now, about life and the world....

If you could choose to be a character, that you could "realistically" imagine yourself as.....given another shot at life....who would you choose to be? :hmmm:

(Yes, I fully expect some smartass and humorous hijackings of the thread too....UP as Klinger (MASH), Phobia as Al (Home Improvement), or RainMan as himself (Rainman).....)


I'd choose:

Jack McCoy (Law and Order)

or

Sebastian Shark (Shark)


Had I grown up in a middle class neighborhood and family....given my interests, talents, and strengths...I'd have probably gone to law school. And I doubt the money of private practice would have drawn me away from the satisfaction for putting bad guys where they belong: with their prison bitches. :D



Who would you choose to be? :hmmm:

It's an interesting question, and it made me realize something as I thought over all my favorite movies. Not many of the main characters have good lives. The Corleones I wouldn't want their lives, except maybe as a relative, godson to Vito.

Most of my favorite characters live tragic lives, full of death and despair and loss.

I feel like two face in batman without the evil streak."The irony of not dramatizing Harvey Dent's transformation into Two-Face is that the last time we saw the character, he was black! Schumacher opted not to use Billy Dee Williams, who had played the character in Batman 1. ''I always wanted Tommy Lee Jones,'' explains the director. ''I didn't consider Billy Dee Williams for the role, because I think that he is a hero. I always see him like Clark Gable. I had just finished working with Tommy Lee Jones on The Client, and I thought he would be a great Harvey Dent/ Two-Face."
