If you could star in any movie....

Today on my way to work, the hosts of my local radio station (recently upgraded from a.m.!) were doing their normal happy chit chat, when one of the hosts said that one of her colleagues from the sports show often leaves messages on her voice mail with suggestions for talk topics for the morning team. His most recently suggested topic was "If you could star in any movie, what would it be?" While she didn't seem impressed with the topic, I think it would have gotten lots of response, even on that 6:00 a.m. time slot on Sunday morning, when no one but maybe me and my mom are listening.

So, what movie would I want to star in? Probably Grease. Or Singin' In the Rain! I am a sucker for the musical theater. I've never actually been in a play or musical, other than the short run as Mrs. Claus in the 2nd grade, but I often sing, even if I am not very good. One of the things I really love about my current job is that it is in a warehouse and the accoustics are great! I always imagine myself in a musical when I'm walking through the warehouse. Don't tell.

So, what movie would you want to star in?

LOL, KT! I had no idea you were so into musicals! I guess I should have known, based on The Sound of Music. Hmmmm, to answer your question . . . I'd really love the role of "Rizzo" in Grease. I think I could belt out a pretty mean "Look At Me, I'm Sandra Dee." But if I were going for something less musical . . . I'd want to be a kick-butt chick, like Lucy Liu in the first Charlie's Angels movie. (It doesn't have to be a "great" movie, does it?)

I would totally want to be one of the secondary characters in a movie musical! Like Riff in West Side Story, say, or Rolf in The Sound of Music (although I would prefer not to be a Nazi Youth).

Maybe the Steve Martin dentist in Little Shop of Horrors. Or the Chris Penn character in Footloose.

I've always felt alone as a lover of musicals. I have found my allies! My sister is wrong. Broadway music is totally cool!!!

On further reflection, I could see myself playing the role of Mother Superior in The Sound of Music. I would love to be the one to belt out "Climb Ev'ry Mountain." BTW, did you know that the actress who played Mother Superior in the movie version was lip-synching to the voice of another singer when she sang that song?
