I’m really trying not to let the questions get above 60 in my LJ inbox.
Which comic book character would you like to see on the silver screen? Who would you cast to play the role?
I think the one comic book character I’ve thought of bringing to a movie screen the most would be Dream from Neil Gaiman’s Sandman series.
And the perfect person to play him, I’ve discovered, would actually be Keanu Reeves.
Don’t throw things at me until you sit down and think about it. Yes, Keanu isn’t the world’s best actor. Yes, a lot of times you see “Dude!” when you look at him. However, think about it.
If you’ve read Sandman then you know that Dream tends to be way more angsty than he should be. Even Death, who is his sister, is more perky and optimistic than him. He broods in this selfish, I-can’t-see-past-my-own-hair kind of way. A lot like Neo if you think about it.
And Keanu even looks like Dream. Let his hair grow out kinda long and shaggy and give him some black contacts and he seriously even looks like most of the versions of Dream that I’ve seen.
