30.) role from one of your favorite movies that you could picture RA playing
Joe Fox from You’ve Got Mail
This is such a cute movie, I adore it! Kathleen Kelly owns a sweet little children’s book store, which holds sentimental value in relation to her deceased mother. Joe Fox, part of a well-known franchise family, suddenly becomes her competition. They’re business rivals…but little do they know that they’re anonymous on-line friends as well. friends who are moving towards being more than friends. It’s all about getting to know the real people we are underneath, as opposed to the one we show the world. also, what it means to have the freedom to share your true thoughts with someone, particularly someone who doesn’t know that other face.
Why can I picture Richard in this role? because although Joe Fox can be arrogant, he is also quite funny and charming. he’s a sweetheart underneath that family label, who is ready to break away from expectations. I think Richard would do really well with the comedic delivery that makes up the character, while also adding that extra swoon-factor to the understanding friend aspect. No offense to Tom Hanks, he’s quite enjoyable in the role, but he’s always reminded me of my brother. so it would be nice to have a Joe Fox that could melt me.
music question: a song from your favorite movie
Anyone at All-Carol King-You’ve Got Mail
this song is special to me because it reminds me of my son:
You could have been anyone at all
A stranger falling out of the blue
I’m so glad it was you
and the struggles he went through in regards to an early childhood speech disorder. first, with the frustration when he just couldn’t make the words come out, and then when he started school and no one could understand him. he attended speech therapy for a few years, which helped put him on the track to eventually outgrowing it. now as a smooth voiced teenager, you would never know what he went through to find that voice.
Words can hurt you if you let them
People say them and forget them
Words can promise
Words can lie
But your words make me feel like I can fly
