Red The Musical

Even though I've been dying my hair for years, I still don't really think of myself as a red head. But, I would most definitely pick one to play me in a movie about my life. I love Julianne Moore and think she's classy and fun and beautiful and sexy and sweet: me in a nutshell, right? It's a little strange to choose someone older, but maybe by the time I'm older, I'll have something worth making a movie about? I lead a fairly basic life. I love it, but I'm not sure anyone else would want to watch it. So, it'd have to be a musical in order to make it fun and remotely entertaining. Similar to Newsies, Chicago, Moulin Rouge, Mama Mia. I love these movies and do frequently break out into song and dance, so I think it's totally fitting.
And I'd have to say, my love interest would most definitely be played by one Tom Welling (bet you didn't see that one coming at all, huh?)
Further, I'd want it to be sharp, witty, well written, with definite drama (ala emotional growth, not OC or Real Housewives); overall a romantic drama (rather than the painful physical or awkward comedy type, just moments of laughter to alleviate the pain - not that I, thankfully, have a lot of dark pain, but that's the kind of movie I respond to at least). Maybe even written in Iambic Pentameter?
The soundtrack would be rocking and soulful and eclectic to really encapsulate me and my idiosyncrasies.
Oh, and whatever the scheduled opening weekend is - plan to attend the next weekend, because I'm always late.

2 tips left at the bar:

Iambic pentameter, hee.

I love that you love Mamma Mia! I feel partly responsible, even if I'm not. A musical would be awesome. Love Julianne Moore.
