What movie character(s) are you the most like?
That's easy. I'm a combination of Lloyd Christmas (Jim Carrey) from "Dumb and Dumber" and Mike Peters (Jon Favreau) from Swingers. No doubt. :)

1. I'd like to think
I'm like Liv Ullman's scientist in "Mind Walk", Travis Cole, the cellist in "The Room Upstairs", and Mr. Royce in "A Captive in the Land".

4. I met the guy who wrote that movie
Chris McQuarrie. It was at a screeplay reading in Seattle, he gave me his e-mail and everything. I was supposed to interview him, but he never got back to me, haha. Other than that he was a really nice guy.

9. Dr Araway "Contact" , "Amelie", and Doris Murphy "A League of Their Own"
Dr Araway because in my life I have come against many people who seem to want to block my path, demean my contribution, and then take credit for what I do.



Amelie because I often do things for other people at the expense of myself, and I have an odd, quirky sense of humor.




Doris because when I played women's football, I was the loud ass, team spirit jawjacker.
