-- Casting Call ;-)) --

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

With three different Ivory-bill movies out-and-about in the marketplace, figured I oughta render
my own choices for casting a Hollywood blockbuster on the topic. So here are a dozen of the internet figures from this epic saga (column A) and 12 actors I've chosen to play their roles (column B) --- HOWEVER, I've completely JUMBLED the order of the actors from my actual pairings so you can now mix-and-match as you see fit (...and I SHAN'T ever reveal my original choices):

A ......................................................... B

Mike Collins ............................... Matthew Broderick
"Cyberthrush" ............................. Ben Stein
"Fangsheath"............................. Jack Nicholson
John Fitzpatrick ........................ Sean Penn
Geoff Hill ................................... Kevin Costner
Jerry Jackson ............................ Russell Crowe
David Luneau ............................ Will Ferrell
Tom Nelson ............................... Al Pacino
Bill Pulliam ................................. Harrison Ford
David Sibley .............................. Matt Damon
Fred Virrazzi ..............................
Tom Hanks
"Anonymous" ............................. Mickey Rourke

Yo, Spielberg, are ya out there?....

(P.S.: Off-topic question: the highly-popular blog "Mike's Birding and Digiscoping Blog" has been down for at least 24-48 hrs... can anyone apprise me, by comments or private email, what's going on there???)

They say there's no such thing as bad publicity. Your roll call certainly implies it. Will the film include any apologies from any of the 'luminaries'?

Which species has been chosen to play the fleeting appearance of the woodpecker?
 
THANKS for the info, John, much appreciated.
 
Mickey Rourke should play Fred Virazzi.

Couldn't they just get the cast (and use the title) from "Dumb and Dumber"?
Though they would have to get some extras from central casting to play all of those CLO functionaries who, for some reason, were authors on "rediscovery" paper.
 
Hmmm... not seeing Rob Zombie on the list, I'm not sure who you would have pencilled in to play me... Don't you need to get "Mad Bill" Smith in the script too?

Doubt you'll get picked up by one of the major studios with no murder or sex in your pitch!

Actually, Mr. Smith was in my first draft, but got cut before final auditions. And re: 'the pitch,' did I forget to mention the scene between CT and Jennifer Aniston?
 
I'm surprised to see others casting for virrazzi. No doubt about it - Fred must be played by Al Pacino!
 
Sorry, but I didn't see a female "internet figure from this epic saga" that Jennifer Anniston could play. Surely she would never be cast as an extra.
