Oh, I defenitely agree that a John Lasseter biopic would be great! Especially for us Pixar crazies. I just don't think it'd be commercialy successful.

I agree, Love, because no one would know who he is, even though he's at least a demi-god in my eyes. :cry:

Um, everyone knows who John Lasseter is. His name is plastered on some of the most beloved films of all time!

But every time I say his name to my family or classmates, they say, "Who in the sam heck is that?"

So I think he's kind of random to anyone except for we religious fans. :) I love John Lasseter.

I recently read that Jesse L. Martin is working on a Marvin Gaye biopic! OMG< how awsome would that be? I hope this is true.

Here is one figure that desperately needs a feature-length biopic in my opinion - Charles Dickens.

Although Dickens's life has been the subject of at least two TV miniseries and two famous one-man shows, he has never been the subject of a Hollywood big screen biography.

I agree, I'd love to see one of him.

I think that there should be a biopic of Alexander Hamilton.

Nobody knows who he really is, but he's a fascinating man in American history. Most people know him from his fatal duel with Aaron Burr. Hamilton was an illigetimate child born on a random island in the Caribbean, and grew up to be an important figure in the American Revolution and the years that followed. He is best known for wanting a strong centeral government, being a federalist, and wanting to open a National Bank. He was also involved in the first major politician to have an affair scandal in the United States. His life is fascinating!

You can call us Aaron Burr from the way we're dropping Hamiltons.

Great idea for a biopic.

Yay, I'm glad someone else agrees! And I love that quote, thanks so much for that Saturday Night Live reference!

Mick Foley. Former pro-wrestler/WWE champion, actor, and NY Times best-selling author.

People have been trying to start the movie version of his first autobiography for years. It's one of the greatest books I've ever read. His life has been extraordinary and he is an amazing person.

I've been thinking, I'd also love to see a biopic on Sacagawea! In 5th grade, my school had a wax museum, and I dressed up and reported on Sacagawea. I think more people should know about this remarkable 16 year-old mother who helped Lewis and Clark across the continent with a baby on her back!

I think a Robert Downey, Jr. one would be pretty cool. His drug problems, multiple arrests and a very big, award-winning comeback.

One name - Dean Martin. I could see it so well.

I have gotten this rather interesting idea - a biopic of Rondo Hatton. He was a horror actor in the 1930s and 40s, who was the only actor to have acromegaly.

Here's his Wikipedia article:

I could definitely see this happening in maybe 20 or 30 years.

I am amazed that this has not been done yet - a biopic of legendary horror writer H. P. Lovecraft:
