My dream cast

I was thinking today about how much I love Peter Sarsgaard. Someday I will write him the perfect part and he will be in my movie.

And that in turn made me ponder who else I would love to work with. So I started listing people.

Peter Sarsgaard
Ian McKellen
Sigourney Weaver
Damian Lewis
Leonardo DiCaprio
Richard Brooks
Natalie Portman
Djimon Hounsou
Gina Torres
Justin Timberlake
Jensen Ackles

I can hear your laughter. You mock my desire to work with Justin Timberlake, but remember how much his sketches on Saturday Night Live didn't suck while suckitude was all around him? I think you owe me and Justin an apology.

And although Jensen Ackles is a talented actor, his position on this list is mostly for the nude scenes I'd write for him. I would not write nude scenes for Sir Ian, much as he would probably like them. But lookit:

This is my dream cast. I challenge you to name yours. I want to know not necessarily who you love to watch, but who you'd love to write for. Go.


  1. I like a lot of the people on your list.

    My Dream Cast:

    Ian McKellen
    Rufus Sewell
    Elizabeth Mitchell (Lost)
    Terrance Howard
    Robert Downey Jr.
    Jeff Bridges
    Jennifer Jason Leigh

    and more...

  2. Oooh I forgot about Rufus Sewell. And Terence Howard. Good adds.

    And Bai Ling. I forgot about Bai Ling.

    But I swear I haven't forgot about you Claude. I realize you sent me that thing like eight years ago and it keeps mocking me from my desktop and I swear I will get to it any day now.

  3. Jensen is mine! Can we flip for his love? Maybe we could split it where you get him during the week and me on the weekend. Remember him in Dawson's Creek? *Sigh*.

  4. Edward Norton.
    Brad Pitt.
    Mila Jovovich.
    Michelle Rodriquez.
    Ian McKellen

  5. Oh, what a lovely picture of Peter Sarsgaard you managed to find. He joins the following:

    Ray Winstone
    John Simm
    James McAvoy
    Gabriel Byrne
    Paddy Considine
    Jeff Bridges
    Guy Pearce
    Maggie Gyllenhaal
    Sarah Polley
    Shirley Henderson
    Claire Danes
    Maggie Smith

    I could go on, but I really should be actually writing now, not thinking of my dream cast.

  6. And John Cusack. How could I possibly have forgotten John Cusack?

  7. Oh John Cusack of course!

    I think I saw Guy Pierce at my gym yesterday. Or it could have been his doppleganger.

  8. Ahhh! I forgot William Fichtner!

    Time to tag someone.


Please leave a name, even if it's a fake name. And try not to be an asshole.
