I dont' get sick. I just don't. Okay, maybe rarely. BUT...I think I'm getting sick? Tight, hot chest, tickly cough, wheezy breathing, lethargy. *blech* (the last one would have nothing to do with eating nothing but junk food and cheeseez for dinner three nights straight does it?) I think I'll root around in the kitchen see if I've got any NeoCitran left that hasn't expired.

But more importantly:
chicksrus [Michelle] lent me her copy of "The DaVinci Code"
I DON'T want Tom Hanks to play Langdon!!! He's a great actor but he's not gonna do it for me I don't think. I'm dying to see who gets cast in all the other major parts. Silas, Captain Bezu Fache, Sophie Neveu...and I'm only on page 68!!!
I'd LOVE George Clooney to play Langdon.
I'd like Tom Noonan to play Silas. (killer in "Manhunter")
I think Bob Hoskins would make a good Fache if he could pull off a French accent. In my mind he seems more the body type. Otherwise Jean Reno would be just fine by me!!! Hollywood's resident Frenchy it seems. Again, okay by me.
I think Sophie should be played by an 'unknown' and authentic french actress. N'est pas, oui? If it has to be a Hollywood type, mmmmm, it would be very nice to see Natalie Portman play against Reno again. [note to self: when you can, buy "The Professional" on DVD!!!]
Anyway, I've got a cat waiting for her lap reservations so I must go settle down for a little more reading and a lap full of purring fur.

*coughhackcough* ack! I don't wanna be sick damn it! Should put on some tea too. Oh look, I have some cheeseez left...........

Oh and a GIP just to back up my Cloony [or is it Clooney?!] campaign....

We had a huge discussion at work one day about how WRONG Tom Hanks was for the part of Langdon. My vote went to Russell Crowe, with Clooney as a close second. But Tom Hanks? No, no no.

Ooooo! Russell Crowe! I hadn't thought of him. He'd make a good Langdon too. But Hanks? A big N.O. Sorry Tom.

...Russell Crowe, eh.....? Hmmmm....

Did you cast any of the other characters during this huge discussion? Who were some of the other actors people suggested?

Wouldn't it be cool if Hollywood polled the public before casting a movie.

. . . .
Who would you like to play the next [insert lead role here]

A. an 'A' list guy who's the hottest ticket in town.
B. an 'A' list guy we haven't seen in anything good in a while.
C. a 'B' list guy everybody knows but never thought of as a lead.
D. a Television Star looking for his big screen break.
E. the Hottest Pop/Rock/HipHop/Rap artist looking to expand his portfolio.
. . . .

I wonder if it would work.

that would be an interesting poll! No, we didn't talk much about the other characters, only that the girl (and I can't remember her name at the moment, sadly) should be a native French actress or else someone who's relatively unknown.

Awww poor Choo... it's not surprising if you are sick, hun. You've been under a whole lot of stress! Tuck yourself under some blankies, drink lots of tea, eat chicken soup, stay in your jammies, and think happy, sparkly thoughts. And buy yourself some new/unexpired meds! You should at least be comfy if you're sick. Not that you're sick, of course...

Re movie casting: I say, when in doubt, cast Tony Danza. He's so underrated :) But seriously folks... I feel like we've been super-saturated with the same primary actors for ages now... I want some fresh, unknown faces! (Georgie is a doll, though!)

Blah! I'm going to have to venture out tomorrow for new meds. It looks like everything I own is at least two years old.

Hee. I will try and think happy sparkly thoughts - which shouldn't be too hard once I'm self medicated. wOoT! Drugs, y'gotta love 'em.

I don't know about Tony Danza but I do agree that super saturation is getting to me too.

Amen to self-medicating. Float away on a lovely Neo Citran high... you'll feel sparkly in no time :)

(and poor Tony, so misunderstood...)

I've been on vacation so i've only just seen this thread, so forgive me for my late reply! *lol* Anywayz, Tom Hanks as Langdon... no way.. i can't not stand the guy... why? I don't know, i just have some irrational dislike of the man! *lol* And if they cast him, then that means i cannot go to see the movie of one of my fave books! Please, please, please, no Tom Hanks! *lol*

BTW, how are you, Choo? Hope u had a good Xmas and New Year's eve! Currently i'm still debating going CFTC this year! At the moment, i'm 60/40 in favour of going!

Hey sweetie! I hope you had a good vacation!!

Dude! Tom Hanks! So, so wrong.

(but I have to admit I reacted the same way - if not worse - when Tom Cruise was cast as the Vampire Lestat and I thought he did a brilliant job, so they may prove my dislike of this casting unwarrented.

CFTC's up in the air for me too for financial reasons. :o( If we both go we *have to* make sure we meet!!!
Jan. 12th, 2005 09:07 am (UTC)
Yep, i'm hearing ya about the financial situation! I either need a promotion or a new job! *lol* Plus my friend wants to go to NYC for her birthday in April, and i really want to go Australia for Xmas this year. Plus i'm kinda feeling Orlando this summer!

Zoiks! You need to win the lottery!!!
You like I ADORE travelling.
Too bad our bank accounts can't keep up with us!
Jan. 12th, 2005 02:13 pm (UTC)
Lucky for me my birthday is 2 days before Christmas so i can usually get a bit of cash from the relatives towards any Xmas trips i make! NYC is pretty cheap in April so i think my bank balance can stretch to that, just not sure about the Chicago trip, July is the most expensive time to travel, all the flights i've looked at are at least £600!!
Jan. 12th, 2005 08:06 pm (UTC)
Sounds like you're all set for NYC! How exciting! I've never been but would love to!
Flights in July are at least (insert Pound sign here)600!?! Yikes, that's bloody steep! Maybe you should save that kind of money for Australia.
Jan. 13th, 2005 01:57 pm (UTC)
I know, i can get a flight to Oz for £640 plus tax! But i can't wait until the end of the year for a vacation, that's just such a depressing thought! *lol*
