When I was in New York City for the past week, I saw the city that Alexander Hamimlton virtually built to be the financial capital of rht world. The $10 Dollar Founding Father is not known as well as Washington or Jefferson. But his life was very interesting. From his illigetimate birth in the Carribean, to his partake in the first s-ex scandal in American History, to his death from being shot to the face in a duel. Never a dull moment.

I had this idea shortly before I graduated from high school, but forgot about it until today: A biopic of legendary French actor and mime Marcel Marceau, with Johnny Depp playing the title role.

BIG ANNOUNCEMENT. I posted before about the idea of a biopic of legendary children's author Dr. Seuss. Now, that project has been put into motion, with Johnny Depp's production company, Infinitum Nihil, and Illumination Entertainment. Depp will produce and possibly star in the title role:

Whoa! Thanks for the update, that is exciting news. I hope the movie goes into his work in WWII propaganda and his collaborations with friend and animator Chuck Jones.

I would really be interested in seeing a biopic of Tennessee Williams; I don't believe one has been made yet.

There's been a fake theatrical poster for a Walt Disney biopic starring Ryan Gosling and directed by Ron Howard circulating on the internet.

Here it is:

That makes me mad, because I would love to see that movie in real life.

Why doesn't Ron Howard just actually make that movie?

If that film were actually attempted based off that poster, they'd have to get every single actor and crew that is credited to agree to doing the film. It would be nothing but a huge mess. Still, does Ryan Gosling sound like a good candidate to play Disney?
