    Pettyfer isn't a good actor it must be said.

    Could you recommend somebody else?

    Well firstly it depends if you want the typical Hollywood actor with the big muscles and amazing looks who are awful actors or those who look awful and act amazing. And it depends when you set the biopic age wise. How does Henry Cavill sound? If you want a younger guy then Taron Egerton is your guy.

    No. Don't want a flashy guy.

    Somebody who could play an enigmatic and brooding role.

    Pettyfer might be ok actually.

    Fair enough but he was a stripper in Magic Mike that seems a bit flashy.

    Now you are talking, forget Pettyfer, Jamie has a clean image (I think) and dated Lily Collins so your soundtrack could be produced by Phil Collins.

    Interesting choice. She stands out because people just end up choosing the most popular actress. And not to mention she is gorgeous and starred in a box office hit film that swept the world off its feet.

    I can't really name an actor who looks like me, hopefully some pop up before my film gets made.

    It's hard I know because some actors may look similar but they act like **** or they left the industry. If the worst comes then I'll have to act myself out lol.

    Yeah maybe they'll play myself, I don't think I'd like any comparison. I hate when people say people look like me cause I can never see it.

    Who do they say you look like? I never get comparisons - if I do then it's some Asian actress that I would never think should play me. I think it's a difficult choice because it can have an impact on the film as it can be negative or positive and make or break the film.

    Great.
    You could get some groovy 80s tunes that might turn off the young audiences so you're playing with fire here.

    Nobody I know has ever said I look like anyone, someone on TSR said I looked like this guy but I can't remember their name and they honestly didn't look like me at all.

    At school people sometimes confused me with vastly different people who also look absolutely nothing like me.

    You don't look like a guy! And some people think they're funny when they aren't. I get annoyed when people match my name to someone else and say I look like them or I am them - it's just a name and so many people share first and last name. Doesn't help that this woman who shares the same name as me has quite obscene pictures online.

    Precisely why she would be my first choice. I love her. She's a great actress and she is beautiful. :love:
