The Film Version Of Your Life
In mine, I would be played by Phillip Seymour Hoffman. There’s a fair-to-middling physical resemblance, to be sure, but mostly, I just feel like he would do a really, really great job.
I’d also like it if he would say this about me:
The world is hard, and … being a human on this earth is a complicated, messy thing.Ē Hoffman paused again. ďAnd I, personally, am uncomfortable with that messiness, just as I acknowledge its absolute necessity. I find the need to play a part like [Tim Carmody] inescapable, and I only want to do things Iím that passionate about. I know there are actors out there that present themselves as cool cats, but you better take your cool-cat suit off if you want to act. You canít otherwise.
