If you could click your heels three times, and change lives with any character from any film, who would it be and why?
HELEN PAAR - THE INCREDIBLES
JANE CRAIG - BROADCAST NEWS
Meet me... Jane. I work in the high pressure world of broadcast news production. I have to deal with geeky, smart guys and air-head bimbo guys on a daily basis and be a professional about it. I am driven to succeed but only in the most ethical way possible. I will not lower my standards just so that I can get ahead. As you can imagine, my life is incredibly stressful and I start each day with a crying jag so I can get it out of the way and get on with my day. Yes, I am that organized.
DORINDA DURSTON - ALWAYS
BARB - LITTLE BLACK BOOK
Meet me... I'm Barb. It's an appropriate name, actually. I am incredibly sharp. I am manipulative. I get what I want at whatever cost. But somehow, it turns out for the best anyway. I am a drama queen, in the middle of everything and everyone's business. The picture above is a perfect depiction of me. I am like a vulture, circling every carcass.
Actually, that last one is not me, nor any character I'd like to be, but I love watching this character do her thing.
You may have noticed that EVERY SINGLE ONE of these big-screen roles are portrayed by Holly Hunter. This was not planned, but even with all the thought I put into this, the only ones that popped into my mind were Holly Hunter ones! She always plays such strong characters and I supppose that is her appeal to me - I want to be a strong character too!
