Bit of fun.
Who would you cast as your partner or husband (or wife) in a film.

My partner would have to be played by Alan Davies (complete with duffle coat) or that bloke who played the Facebook creator in The Social Network.

In my eyes - I would be Drew Barrymore but that's neither here nor there. So.,,,, how about yours?

Matt Damon! Just so I could perv on him on set wink

John Cleese in Fawlty mode.

DH is a silver fox, so it would have to be George Clooney, who else!

Python here too: Graham Chapman. He'd be perfect. If only he were still alive.

Yummy Idris Elba grin

CuntyBunty Thu 24-Apr-14 19:27:16

Either Simon Callow (DH has a big booming voice), or Tim Robbins (DH is the thinking woman's crumpet, to me, anyway).

If you are going for real life, Ray Winstone with much less hair and a Northern accent.

If you are going for fantasy, Yul Brynner even though he's dead, or Bruce Willis grin

Neil Morrissey if we go on looks grin

Steve Coogan or Rob Brydon (specifically in The Trip) for the personality.

Bogeyface Thu 24-Apr-14 19:32:01

He says Will Smith

I say Morgan Freeman wink

My ex h was a dead ringer for Marty pellow, back in the day. Current DH.... Hmmmm. Medium height, stocky, short beard, very high forehead indeed with sticky up hair like a bog brush. Can't think of anyone who looks remotely like him. I'm aware I'm painting an attractive picture but he's a handsome devil in his own, unique way....

In real life, Beaker and I would be played by Miss Piggy in a dowdy wig. She'd get an Oscar, a bit like Charlize Theron for her performance as Aileen Woronos.

In my fantasy it would be David Tennant. Similar size and build, similar eyes..... after that he'd have to rely on acting talent

wishinwaitinhopin Thu 24-Apr-14 19:49:13

Sorry. To clarify. I meant who would play your actual RL partner.... Not a fantasy. Otherwise obvs it would be Mr Clooney.

TheSlagOfSnacks Thu 24-Apr-14 19:49:28

Lol @ Basil Fawlty.

My DP is also a silver fox, so it'd have to be George Clooney. Although my friends also told me when we first stared dating that they thought he looked like a cross between Brad Pitt and Brian Cox!

<stealth boast>

LaQueenOfTheSpring Thu 24-Apr-14 19:57:44

For looks definitely Matt Le Blanc, they could be brothers...

Personality though...not sure? DH very, very techy and mathematical, with zero patience and quite sarcastic...still no idea??

Peter Sarsgaard

but with hipster glasses smile

Have heard this from other people so not just wishful thinking for me!

SweetErmengarde Thu 24-Apr-14 20:09:01

I'd never tell him, but my DH does bear a (superficial but undeniable) resemblance to Rake Yohn from Jackass. He is better-groomed though!

And certainly an improvement on an ex of mine, who resembles Meat Loaf circa Paradise By The Dashboard Light!

A blonde Nick Frost. Not everyone's cup of tea granted, but I loves him grin

RosegoldRuby Thu 24-Apr-14 20:11:10

Tom Cruise. For many different reasons.
sad
Except Scientology, thank fuck.

Not my DH/DP, only BF, but the nearest would be Idris Elba (right build, height and age, similar colouring). I'd have to be played by Jessica Chastain grin

dementedma Thu 24-Apr-14 20:24:46

Homer Simpson

whitsernam Thu 24-Apr-14 20:25:11

Richard Gere!!

makoshark Thu 24-Apr-14 20:28:56

A younger Nick Nolte or a more beat-up/life-raddled Daniel Craig grin

Snapespeare Thu 24-Apr-14 20:32:38

BF would be played by Aiden Gillen, according to Dcs. I can kinda see it.

CoffeeChocolateWine Thu 24-Apr-14 20:32:42

My DH used to get told a lot that he looks like 'Adam from Spooks'...so Rupert Penry-Jones I guess! Suits me fine!
