Your favorite movie line: “We’ve known each other many years, but this is the first time you ever came to me for counsel or for help. I can’t remember the last time that you invited me to your house for a cup of coffee, even though my wife is godmother to your only child. But let’s be frank here. You never wanted my friendship. And, uh, you were afraid to be in my debt.” Don Vito Corleone I like this entire scene that introduces us to The Godfather, it is iconic. But I like these particular lines because it shows us the darker side of The Don’s dealings.
Getting to Know You
In the film of your life who would play you? Diego Luna
In the film of your life what scene/embarrassing moment would you not want filmed? Nothing, but I wouldn’t watch the movie.
Name a movie you would like to recast with any actor/actresses on the planet : Recast April O’Niel in the new Teenage Muntant Ninja Turtles, I don’t know with who, any ideas?
What is your go to movie time snack? Keep it classic with Popcorn
Drive In or Couch Potato? I would rather be in the comfort of my home.
If you could have a movie re-made tomorrow exactly the way you wanted it to be made what movie would that be and why? The Last Airbender, I would adapt it to be truer to the actual animated series that is beloved by its fans. But I would also have it be a bit darker than the cartoon itself. Reason is because it was horribly adapted by M. Night Shyamalan, he destroyed the essence of the series’ mythos.
Who would you want your onscreen kiss to be with? Emma Watson looks like she would be the best on-screen kisser.
What movie do you wish you could erase from your memory because it was terrible? The Last Airbender or Dragon Ball Evolution I wish I could erase because both destroyed franchises that I love.
What movie do you wish you could re-watch as if it was the first time you had ever seen it? The Godfather because I saw it at too young of an age to completely appreciate it, so I wish I could redo that viewing experience.
What is your go to theater seat? Right in the middle of the theater so I don’t have to turn my neck up and I can see the entire screen comfortably
What actor from the TV sphere of acting needs to transition to the silver screen? The current Flash (Grant Gustin) needs to be the DCU’s Flash! We don’t need a recast.
What movie are you most excited to see? Suicide Squad
What casting ensemble would be your HAVE TO SEE? Anything that would have Dwayne The Rock Johnson, Denzel Washington, Samuel L Jackson, Scarlett Johansson, and Jessica Alba.
What movies do you avoid at the theater? None, I would see any if I had the time and money.
