Major Spoilers Question Of The Day: Your Biopic Movie Edition


One of the most devastating moments of my life circa 1994 came during an idle conversation about who we wish would play us in a theoretical movie of our lives, when a casual acquaintance looked me in the eye with the dream-killing voice of rationality and said that even if John Belushi were alive, she found no correlations between a comedy idol and my juvenile shenanigans.  I won’t lie, I’m still a little bit offended at her rudeness, but this anecdote serves to prove one thing: Perception is, to quote noted bastard Henry Ford, ‘more or less bunk.’  In any case, I’ve grown a thicker skin and stopped hanging out with self-involved hipster jerks, and these days I’m more of the opinion that I’d want to be played by Kevin Spacey in his ‘American Beauty’/’Margin Call’ weary-with-hidden-depths mode.  Sure, there’s somewhat limited physical resemblance, but something about the subtle mannerisms and vocal techniques K-Space (shortening already-short names is the cool, in thing these days, right?) brings to his every role, and I think his being ten years older is a fair trade for me being 150 pounds heavier, which leads to today’s cloudcuckoolander query…

The MS-QOTD (pronounced, as always, “misquoted”) reminds Faithful Spoilerites that this is not about reality or resemblances, but about positivity and the whos and whats of who you kinda wanna be, asking: Who would you most love to see playing you in a movie of your life?
