Who Would Play You In A Movie (8)

Dear Facebook, It was my idea first. Actually, that’s probably not true. But if you’re over on Facebook, you’ve noticed that last week was Doppelganger week, in which you put a famous person who is your likeness, as your profile pic. As it turns out, Josh Berk chose Mark Ruffalo as his likeness. As it also turns, Kristin (my cohort for this game) and I had also been working on who should play him for my movie. Mostly because of the Mr. T commentary from the last time we played this game. But also because I thought it might be a fun way to mention that his BOOK, The Dark Days of Hamburger Halpin, is coming out on February 9. Go buy it. Now. Then come back.

The thing Kristin and I decided was that Berk is a chameleon! Some days he looks kinda Asian. Some days he looks Amish. Some days he looks Librarian. I don’t know what that means. Basically, we couldn’t decide, so we’re opening it up for voting. Here are the many faces of Berk:

1. Josh Berk Librarian, played by Adam Sandler or Robert Downey Jr.

2. Josh Berk FancyPants Writer, played by Jake Gyllenhaal

3. Josh Berk College Guy, played by Patrick Dempsey

4. Asian Berk, played by Jackie Chan

5. Josh Berk The High  School Years, played by MC Hammer

6. Amish Josh Berk, played by this guy.

7. I Wish I Were Mark Ruffalo Josh Berk, played by Mark Ruffalo

    1. How interesting, Kurtis! Ice Grill, U.S.A. seems like a stellar movie, too. Did you read the tagline? “Drugs. Sex. Gambling. All in a day’s work.” I hope he’s versatile enough to play a children’s book author.

  1. Omigosh…I came to check this out after seeing a retweet…I’m dying! This is hysterical! I LOVE the many faces thing. Thanks for the good laugh first thing in the morning. I totally voted.

  2. First, grassyass for the giggle this morning. I stand by my choice of #3. Chameleon, the college years. Mainly because I freaking love that hair!!!

      1. Ruffalo is Italian. I think Dempsey is Irish but he looks like Jewish. Sandler is obviously Jewish. I think Gyllenhaal is a halvsie (like me). Hammer & Chan are, don’t quote me on this but I’m pretty sure it’s true, 100% Jewish TO THE MAX.

  3. Have you seen the “Separated at Birth” books? Maybe it’s time for a new one to be done, and you could be the editor, Jody!!

    I voted for Robert Downey Jr because, well, I like him ;-).

  4. I voted for Robert Downey Jr because anyone who has the most remote chance to look like him should do everything in his power to play that puppy UP! Gah… he’s so freakin adorable. (Go for it, Josh! You’ve got a few years — he’s 44!) 😉

  5. Hammer is gaining ground! (How long is the voting open? When do you officially announce a winner? People are dying to know the final results! And by “people” I mean me.)

    1. This is a very good question! I will close the voting tonight at 9pm Eastern. And announce the official winner tomorrow. Even though you can all look at the results any time. But making it official will put pressure on people to get their votes in, so go forth and pressure your peers.
