Ya Gotta Be In It To Win It, Kids.

Clock’s ticking, cats and kittens.  You have four more days to enter the First Annual LET’S CAST… Contest.  Just go here and leave a comment telling me what movie you’d like me to cast.

I serve at the pleasure of the President.

No…wait, that’s Rob Lowe, Richard Schiff, and Allison Janney…

Yes.  I just made a West Wing reference.

The First Annual LET’S CAST… Contest

Drown the kids and shoot the neighbors, it’s time for the FIRST ANNUAL LET’S CAST… CONTEST!

That’s right, folks.  It’s time for you, my loyal readers, to submit ideas for my next LET’S CAST… post.  What does that mean, exactly?  Well, for starters, it means that I’ve run out of my own ideas and, like every other hack writer before me, I’ve decided to strip mine the brains of others.  The plump, sweet, juicy, life-sustaining brains of others.  But, it also means that you will get to make me your own private dancing monkey for however long it takes me to crank out a brilliantly witty dream cast for whatever project wins the coveted first place slot.

So, what are you waiting for?  Have a favorite book, comic, play, or old TV show that you’d love to see on the big screen?  Was there a movie that had a really cool premise, but whose cast was so horrible that it made you wanna go out and drop kick the first three-legged blind puppy you saw?

If you answered “Yes” to either of the above queries, simply leave a comment and tell me which movie you’d like me to cast.  Whichever suggestion is the most interesting (or, depending on my mood, the easiest) will win and you’ll get to see your entry after it’s been smacked around by the enchanted LET’S CAST… Shillelagh (trust me, like laws and sausage, you do not want to see how a LET’S CAST… list is actually made, it ain’t pretty).

What are you waiting for, Sally?  Make with the comments…
