Celebrity Special

After coming back from dinner, I walked into the house to find the high school kid of the house belting out some Korean song ballad.

"Are you okay?" (I asked that because it sounded like he was in pain)

"I'm just practicing."

He didn't seem to be too embarrassed about it though, because he just went right back into it. Good thing too, because it sounds like he needs a lot of "practice."


Jeon-san and I had an interesting conversation during dinner. The topic: If they made a movie about you, who would play your character? But to make it a little more interesting, we had to come up with two choices: First choice would be who YOU WANT to play your character (your dream choice), and the second would be who would actually END UP playing you (realistic choice).

Di wanted Audrey Tautou (Amelie), but couldn't think of a second choice. I suggested Christina Ricci (Addam's Family) and Gwyneth Paltrow (if she acts like her character from The Royal Tenenbaums). Also Kate Winslet from Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind.

For myself, I wanted Edward Norton. Hey, ya gotta think big right? But with my luck, I'll probably get someone like Keanu. Di suggested Topher Grace (That 70's Show) and Joseph Gordon-Levitt (3rd Rock from the Sun).

Then we started talking about other people that we know. That was more fun. And here are some of our choices (I don't remember all of them):

Kim MSN - Sylvester Stallone
Mira SMN - Calista Flockhart
Pablo - Nick Frost (Ed from Shaun of the Dead)
Doojin - Ron Livingston (Peter from Office Space)
Andy - Joshua Jackson (no brainer)
Mark - I said Chris Farley. She said Jack Black.
Grace - Scarlett Johansson (what a HUGE compliment, eh Gracie?)
Jason C. - Seth Green
Sung - David Duchovny

Agree? Disagree? More suggestions? Discuss.


EDIT (10:05pm): He's still going.


  1. you should definitely be keanu reeves (take it as a compliment)

    i agree with all the celebrities you matched church people with except kim msn with sylvester stallon and andy with joshua jackson.... pick someone else other than joshua jackson please! thanks! :)

  2. Wow, that is a huge compliment. :) i think she's neat. How did i get her?! I am curious (and smiling). Hmm, i don't know about Rocky for Kim Msn; dude, there totally was someone who reminded me of him in a movie... but of course... you guessed it, I don't remember. Perhaps it'll come to me. I like Jack Black for Mark. Choices for Sung and Jason = perfection.

  3. oh, i just remembered for Kim Msn. Did you ever watch that show on CBS with the guy who would get the newspaper the day before, so he would run around and try to prevent all the bad things from happening? The guy from that show TOTALLY reminds me of Kim Msn.
