we’re writing the screenplays right now

The other night at dinner we decided it was high time we chose who will be portraying us in the movie version of our lives. Danica McKellar, Winona Ryder, and Ellen Page were the top picks to play me.

My initial instinct for Micah was Matt Bomer, but then yesterday I realized I had it wrong. And I wondered how I had missed it all these years. Matt Bomer is okay, but the prize, I believe, goes to James Franco. Am I right, or am I right?

We haven’t come up with the right person to play Abby yet, although I’m leaning towards Claire Danes.

Who would you cast as the lead in the story of your life?

  1. I think, for me, Natalie Portman or Mandy Moore
    For Jordan, Ben Afleck or Chris Martin (of Cold Play)

    I like your picks for you Lizzie! :) Very cute.
    And, I’m stumped on Micah….

  2. I’ve been told my celebrity look alikes are Julia Stiles or Mandy Moore. (Seeing the above comment– maybe she’s an everywoman?) I lean towards Julia Stiles. Though maybe Blake Lively. She’s tall enough.

    I asked Sam who would play him. Without looking away from his video game he said, “Awesome Williams”

  3. Abs has it on Dad. No question there.

    I think you chose well for you and Micah.

    As for me…I’ve been told I look like Keira Knightley, Julia Stiles and Mandy Moore. I suppose Heather might be right- she’s an everywoman or something- but I don’t really know.

    For Jon I think Coach Kyle Wittingham of the University of Utah would be perfect. I’m going to give this one some more thought. Ü

  4. Yeah, Mandy Moore is pretty much the everywoman. Both Abby and I thought of her for ourselves as well. And I vote Julia Stiles for you.

  5. Several years ago, I had a couple of people tell me I reminded them of Jodie Foster, but I’m not sure I buy it. I love that you guys are writing a movie – let me know when it’s out, we would totally splurge to see it!
