Movie Roles you'd LOVE to play...

What is the one (or two or three) movie roles of all time that you would have LOVED to have played (assuming, yes, that you were an actor of Oscar calibre).

I would have loved to have played Tom Hank's role in Apollo 13. Heck, to have simulated all that space stuff, the weightlessness, etc. It would have been amazing. Alas, I am a female, thus that might have proved somewhat difficult. I might settle for Debbie Reynold's role in Singin' in the Rain. That girl could tap! And to play opposite Gene Kelly

Honourable mentions: Dorothy in the Wizard of Oz...although, when confronted by the actual reality of being surrounded by all those munchkins, plus people in tin/lion/tree/witch costumes, I don't knowif I'd be able to handle it...Embeth Davidz in Schindler's List. Something about the way she plays out those lines. As small as her part is, it's very moving. Matt Damon's role in Good Will Hunting. Genius. Angst.

Oh, and anything where I might have played against Matthew McConaghey....

Everytime I watch The Sound of Music, I'm envious of Julie Andrews.

I know ALL the words to the Sound of Music songs. I watched that movie religiously (get it? Religiously, she's a nun?) as a kid.

I was in my high school's production of it. I had been too scared to try out for it cuz I thought I was too ugly to be onstage. But my choir teacher needed another nun who could sing the soprano 1 part, so he asked me to be in it. I figured I'd be safe, hiding under a nun's costume...can't really see what I look like.

Well, I was part of the chorus, so we sang the "Overture and Preludium, the "Morning Hymn/Alleluia", "Maria", and "Climb Ev'ry Mountain"...man, those high notes on that last song were incredible to hit.

I wish I could still hit those notes...my voice isn't what it used to be, which is sad...that was only 4 years ago.

Aw! Kat, you look so cute! That's awesome!

I'm a soprano too. We did Godspell in high school. I swear, my voice has lost its range too....I should practice more in my car. unfortunately, singing along to rock songs doesn't really strech my vocal chords that far...

"How do you solve a problem like Maria?"

I can totally relate.

I was just thinking about this song I had learned...it's a German song called "Gretchen am Spinnrade". My instructor had helped me prepare it for competition, and he said that if I performed it, it would probably be one of the hardest performances any of his students had done. But...I got too busy with work and school and punked out.

I just did a search online and found an audio file of it...I can't believe I used to be able to sing that song. Granted, I wasn't as good as that performer...wow...to sing like that... I used to dance around the house, singin' that song.

One of my all time favorite movies is Breakfast At Tiffany's so I would love to play Holly Gollightly. Another one would be Eve from All About Eve.

Ever since I saw the musical Chicago a couple years ago and now with the movie I'd have to pick Velma Kelly. I'd love to to the Fosse like dance numbers and sing All That Jazz...even though I couldnt carry a tune to save my life!

Ooooh....I'd have all the good parts then.

Lara in Dr. Zhivago

Viola in Shakespeare in Love

Arwen in Lord of the Rings

Satine in Moulin Rouge

either of the female roles in Braveheart

I can't think of any comedies though...

This one is kinda lame but I'm gonna say it anyway "Belle" from Beauty and the Beast.

When I was little I wanted to be Dorothy from the Wizard fo Oz.
