Blame Siegel and Shuster  
valkyrwench and I were watching Superman Returns. I love that movie. At one point, we were talking who we'd cast if we were making a fan film. From there, we had the idea of making a meme. Here are the rules:

1) Pick a movie. Any movie. Preferably your favorite.
2) Cast the film using only people on your friends list and if you must, the friends lists of your friends.
3) Post the results. Explain choices if you like.

Like Ali, I present you with my cast for Superman Returns.

Lois Lane: naamah_darling. The look, the face, and the attitude. They're all there. Don't misunderstand; Lois is no damsel in distress. She gets into trouble because she goes looking for it.
Lex Luthor: nata5. Again, this is mostly attitude and the ability to make you buy the role. He would have to shave his head, of course.
Jimmy Olsen: codecattx.
Perry White: gridlore. Perry is the grizzled veteran of journalism in Metropolis.
Martha Kent: odanu. Not the right age, not even close. Some amount of makeup would be necessary, naturally.
Richard White: A nice, handsome guy, hit with a Kryptonian cockblock. Sucks. This does not reflect on my choice of actors: sonofpan.
Jason Lane: This is a tough one, considering the general lack of five year old boys who have LiveJournals. kitsunegeek, I'm thinking Galen for this role in a couple more years. (I'm willing to bend rule #2; if he had a LiveJournal, he'd definitely be on his mother's friends list.)

and finally:

Clark Kent, aka Superman: A nice guy, a jutting jaw, and utterly serious in the moment. eleccham. A little styling mousse and he even has the spit curl.
Current Mood: amusedamused
Current Music: John Williams - Theme from Superman

I'm gonna put it here, because if it went in my journal they'd probably all kill me.
Crimson Tide

Lt. Commander Ron Hunter: meus_ovatio
Capt. Frank Ramsey: the_lance
Lt. Roy Zimmer: jmhm
Chief of the Boat: portia
Lt. Peter Ince: dmlaenker
Lt. Bobby Dougherty: I don't "friend" people like that.
Lt. Darik Westergard: carpeicthus
Petty Officer First Class Danny Rivetti: slackananda
Petty Officer Third Class Russell Vossler: hightekvagabond
Pete: Artist at workgreendalek on November 30th, 2006 02:22 pm (UTC)
This sounds like fun!

Lois Lane: bronxelf_ag001. Above all she has the requisite cynical spunk, the ability to give as good as she gets, and only gets dewey-eyed for one very specific guy. Plus she's a really REALLY beautiful brunette. I'd certainly give up my super powers for her!
Lex Luthor: stevefava, not because he's Evil or Demented or anything like that (well, he actually is kinda demented), but just because he could well be that kind of bad guy you find yourself really liking and even rooting for in spite of yourself.
Jimmy Olsen: meapet. Have you SEEN her photographs? Her work should be on page one of the Planet.
Perry White: kazvorpal. If he ran a newspaper it would be run exactly the way White runs the Planet. Uncompromising and sarcastic as hell --exactly the sort of editor-in-chief that career politicians and corporate top-dogs fear the most.
Martha Kent: ursa_mater. Nowhere near the right age or physical type, but as her username suggests, she's got a "don't-mess-with-my-kid" streak a mile wide.
Richard White: Me. Mister well-meaning-but-ultimately-superfluous Junior Republican Boy Scout. If I were a superhero I'd be Cyclops, too. Pathetic.
Jason Lane: I'd have to go with simplykimberly's son, although he's getting a bit old for the part now. He's definitely got the ability to toggle between the mischief AND the innoncence as the situation calls for.
And finally: imlad as Clark/Supe. He's got the big heart, the inherent romanticism, and even the general physique and chiseled jawline.

OT - heya
Because it's utterly inappropriate in my world to just barge into someone else's LJ unannounced, I'm posting this here... despite the fact that it is completely irrelevant to the query at hand.

I followed you home from theferrett's after the Hemmingway comment and have read sufficient previous entries to confirm my suspicions.

Hope you don't mind that I added you to the FL - if you do, please let me know so that I can respect your boundaries.

Looking forward to reading more.

Re: OT - heya
Very polite of you. No, I don't mind anyone reading my entries.

Dare I ask what suspicions you confirmed?

Re: OT - heya

That did sound somewhat cryptic didn't it?

Confirmed my suspicions that you were an intelligent sort whom I would enjoy reading. Tough to tell that from merely one comment elsewhere!

Re: OT - heya
Ahh. Well, depends on your sense of humor, I suppose. I consider my own writing to be like gargling with battery acid. Caustic, burning, and likely to get me into a lot of trouble.
