1. Which recognized actor[tress], alive or dead, would you want playing you [or your life] in a film?
As for me, I was looking for someone around 5’10”, fast on the feet, cheeky, can be menacing, questionable reputation as a person, darker or not a lot of hair, not so good looking.
First thoughts were Sean Bean and Patrick Stewart, neither known for their cheeky grins and the latter gay, thought Colin Farrell but he’s gay, Danny Dyer is up himself, this is more difficult than it looks. Jason Statham’s the right height but plays the hard man too much and is up himself. Clive Owen’s too tall, as is Vinny.
The other thing putting almost all of them out is they’re leftwing. I really can’t think of one actor who could do it. Maybe John Nettles.
2. Given a free choice, which recognized character, from any age and place, from any walk of life, would you play in a film?…
