Who would play you in a movie about your life?
If it could be a comedy, I would like Chris Pratt to play myself. One of my favorite shows is Parks and Recreation, which is always good for a laugh and I resonate with his character’s goofiness.
I think I am more interested in what directors would be available to make a movie worth watching regarding my life. Some of my favorite directors are Quentin Tarantino, the Coen brothers, and Christopher Nolan, amongst many of the other great directors/writers in the industry.
