They say that everyone has a double somewhere in the world and I’ve always been a little troubled by the fact that I’ve never seen mine.  When Otter Disaster and I were in college back during the late Cretaceous, there was another student at the university who looked remarkably like him, enough that we called him (unofficially, and never to his face) “Otherotter.”  I am, however, very lucky in that the only FAMOUS person that I’m ever told I resemble is also someone whom I respect and whose work I really love: Penn Jillette.  While I’m not nearly as handsome, especially after his recent weight loss, I am just about as loud, which I think balances things out.   Heck, when I had my own enormous Kentucky Waterfall haircut, I tended to model it on Penn’s hair.  Having an acquaintance who is a dead ringer for a young Tiffany Amber-Theissen, though, I expect that having a complete celebrity doppelganger is a HUUUUGE pain in the patookus, leading to today’s casting room query…

The MS-QOTD (pronounced, as always, “misquoted”) is excited to see Rodrigo, as played by one of the giant Muppets like Sweetums, asking:  What celebrity doppelganger should play YOU in the movie of your life?

Once upon a time, there was a young nerd from the Midwest, who loved Matter-Eater Lad and the McKenzie Brothers... If pop culture were a maze, Matthew would be the Minotaur at its center. Were it a mall, he'd be the Food Court. Were it a parking lot, he’d be the distant Cart Corral where the weird kids gather to smoke, but that’s not important right now... Matthew enjoys body surfing (so long as the bodies are fresh), writing in the third person, and dark-eyed women. Amongst his weaponry are such diverse elements as: Fear! Surprise! Ruthless efficiency! An almost fanatical devotion to pop culture! And a nice red uniform.

    At different times I’ve been told that I looked like Carey Elwes and a muppet. I think I’m probably more like the latter.
