I've been tagged a couple of times by other bloggers - which means I'm supposed to pick up on a theme and write about it - but this is the first time I've managed to actually get as far as writing something! Thank you Icklebabe http://www.icklebabe.com/blog/ (Helen White) for your confidence in me and thank you Tattooed Mummy http://tattooedmummy.blogspot.com/ for coming up with the Theme!
So the deal is I'm supposed to list 5 fictional characters who I 'would' - you know what I mean. This made me laugh because it's kind of a favourite and recurring topic of conversation amongst my friends. It started with the famous episode of Friends where the gang discuss a 'freebie' list of celebrities who they would be allowed to hook up with should they have the opportunity without it signalling the end of their relationship (you can click here for the actual dialogue http://www.friends-tv.org/zz305.html). Chandler settles on a top 5, dithers over Isabella Rosselini and then decides to scrap her from his list... only to meet her and have the opportunity... Eek!
So, here goes - my to 5 FICTIONAL characters who I would, you know, ahem *blush* ... :
- John Malkovich's Vicomte de Valmont in Dangerous Liaisons
- Johnny Depp as Captain Jack Sparrow in Pirates of the Caribbean
- George Cloony as Ryan Bingham in Up in the Air
- Brad Pitt as JD in Thelma and Louise
- James Spader as Max Baron in White Palace
Honourable mentions go to:
Ralph Fiennes as Count Lazsly de Almazy in The English Patient (1st half of the movie...)
Nick Nick Nolte as Tom Wingo in Prince of Tides
Richard Gere as Zack Mayo in Officer and a Gentleman AND as Tony in Looking for Mr Goodbar
I guess I'm a tart... (surprise!)
