I am tired. When I am tired, oftentimes my mind goes places I didn’t send it and brings me back things. It did that today as I was considering the current noise about the Transformers movie over lunch.
What it brought me back was a question, written on a little vellum scroll. The question read as follows: Who would play who in Caledon: The Motion Picture? As I chewed the question along with my beef pad thai, I began to come up with some suggestions, and the decision to open the game to my fellow citizens.
The following is my initial cast list for this all star BLOCKBUSTER. It is neither complete nor set in stone, so I am open to additions, suggestions and arguments. In fact, I encourage them..nay..DEMAND them. Remember, if you mean to cast an actor based on a certain look or period in their career, indicate the film/show you are envisioning them in. As this is the Metaverse, we can cast through space and time.
