After reading that Amanda Seyfried would be playing Linda Lovelace in a biopic about the classic porn star, we decided that we pick who would play ourselves in a movie about our life. For bonus points, we also cast who would play other members of the morning show, our boss, and webguy Gingie.
Julie would cast Ashley Judd to play herself. John picked Kevin James to play himself. Tony couldn’t decide if he wanted Paul Rudd or Vince Vaughn to play himself.
The fun started when we shared who would play everyone else in the room.
In Tony’s movie, Emma Stone would play Julie, Jonah Hill would play John, Patrick Renna (“Ham” from The Sandlot) would play Gingie, and either Patrick Stewart or Richard Moll (aka “Bull” Shannon from Night Court) would play our boss.
In Julie’s movie, possible actors in the role of “Tony” would be Ryan Seacrest, Steve Carrell, Adam Sandler, Ryan Reynolds, or k.d. Lang for a laugh. Possible casting choices for the role of “John” would be Channing Tatum, Ryan Gosling, Seth Rogen, or Melissa McCarthy. “Mr. Clean” would play our boss, and a young, steroid-free Carrot Top would play webguy Gingie.
In John’s movie, Patrick Stewart would be our boss. Andy Dalton would be Gingie. Kristen Wiig would play Julie. Tony’s role is a tie between Ben Affleck and Robert Downey Jr.
In doing all of this, we came across some hilarious results while Googling ourselves!
