Ari is the host for Fun Monday on 9/28/09. Here is Fun Monday's question for 9/28/09: If you could click your heels three times, and change lives with any character from any film, who would it be and why?
OK this should be a simple assignment!!
John Wayne "The Duke" what red blooded male wouldn't want to be The Duke,
to lead the wagon train westward, beat the bad guy to the draw or more often,
in a fist fight, and have that great relationship.... with his horse.
"Crikey" There are so many reasons for wanting to be like Steve Irwin, his joy for
Living and boyish exuberance as the "Crocodile Hunter" make him a must.
My favourite "Country" singer, Australia's own "Slim Dusty" only made one movie,
it was about his life and would have been seen by very few people outside Australia
but Slim holds a place in our hearts that no one can take away.
Paul Newman is an obvious choice when we pick out "Heroes" that we would like
to be, even if only for a short time, trading insults with Elizabeth Taylor in
Cat on a Hot Tin Roof, or jumping of that cliff with the Sundance Kid, pulling a con
job as Fast Eddie Felson.... the list goes on.
"The Chairman of the Board" Frank Sinatra, whether he be singing "Set 'em up Joe,
as Pvt Angelo Maggio in From Here to Eternity, or Col Joseph L Ryan in Von Ryans
Express.... Francis Albert Sinatra was tops.
There was never a movie starring A B "Banjo" Paterson but his best loved poem
"The Man From Snowy River" was the basis of a movie by the same name so in my
mind he also qualifies................
Hey hang on there.... these guys are all dead,
(as are a lot of my other favourites), let me think there has to be someone who is
still living that I can aspire to be....
I've got it I want to be Tim Robbins playing Andy Dufresne in "The Shawshank
Redemption" not only is this a great role in a great movie but it gives me the chance
to get to know another of my favourite actors, Morgan Freeman, as for other reasons
to want to be Tim Robbins... he has spent 21 years with Susan Sarandon who is also
one of my all-time favourites.
Tim is still a babyface even with the grey hair.
Susan still displays all the reasons that I love her.
Thats probably enough of a glimpse into my twisted mind for most of you, go visit
