EW.com, amidst the hoard of Academy Award coverage they’re doing today, put together an interesting gallery.
It is called: “Trading Places: 24 Movie Characters Whose Lives You Want”
It’s a pretty interesting list, which mostly contains rich billionaires who fight bad guys, and who are able to (mostly) feel good about themselves at the end of the day. On this list are Robert Downey Jr’s role in Iron Man, Bruce Wayne in the Batman films.
And then there’s the odder selections of Alicia Silverstone’s character in Clueless, and Kate Winslet’s character in The Holiday (which I’ve seen, and actually kind of enjoyed).
But what character would you like to be?
Personally, I’d like to be Saul in Pineapple Express, and Brad Pitt’s character in True Romance.
Not really. I don’t do drugs.
But I think I’d rather take an oddball-type of role than fight crime like Bruce Wayne. Or maybe I’d just like to be Jason Bourne and crack some heads 24/7. That would be fun.
So who’s your choice?
