Poll: Looking For Imaginary People To Interview

by Josh Hanagarne on June 18, 2010

clint eastwood as bill munny

We've all got it (an interview) coming...

Of all the posts I’ve written, few have generated a better response than my interviews with:

Once I noticed the trend, I squinted my reptilian eyes and thought: Hmm…time to make another non-fortune.

Not getting rich is in fact what I am best at. And this time, I’m not going to get rich by releasing a book of interviews, which will come out this fall. I’ve already booked Dalton from Roadhouse, John Mclane from Die Hard, Bill Munny from Unforgiven, and I’m considering Gizmo, but only because I want to ask him what he thought of Billy Peltzer’s hair.

Who am I missing?

Hey Josh,

Quint from Jaws.

If he’s not available, perhaps Hellboy or Lloyd from Dumb and Dumber.

Holy crap, I never would have thought of Quint. Bravo, Conor!

Dr. Emmett Brown. I really want to know more about Mr. Fusion, and if he had it to do over again, would he have chosen a Delorean.

Okay, but I may not be able to get into Neo from Part 3.

A reunion interview with the cast of Saved by the Bell. Ahh, memories of Kelly Kapowski :-)

Kelly…yes…good memories.

Josh,

Where are the women?

Josh Hanagarne June 18, 2010 at 9:05 am

You tell me, Avil. Give me some! (please)

Hmmmm – are you leaning towards big, muscle-y bad guys? How about Dracula – or, going female, the Alien from, uh, Alien. If badass but not necessarily bad, how about Ripley (simultaneous with the alien?) or Xena, Warrior princess. How about your mother (and I mean that in a nice way).

Josh Hanagarne June 18, 2010 at 9:05 am

I’m leaning towards anyone who deserves it, whether as a reward or a punishment. I’m a big fan of Ripley. She could boss me around anytime. My mom is not imaginary, although she is legendary.

Now there are some possibilities there….

Chunk from The Goonies.
Alex Rogan from The Last Starfighter
Darth Vader and/or Yoda (Yoda would be a hoot!)
Bandit from Smokey and the Bandit
Boss Hogg from the Dukes of Hazzard

Avil mentioned women, how about…
Baby from Dirty Dancing
Princess Leia
Ellen Ripley from Aliens
Sarah Conner from Terminator

Nobody puts baby in the corner. I have that entire movie memorized. It was always on in our house. The soundtrack was always in the stereo.

Kirk June 18, 2010 at 9:18 am

Not sure why no one has mentioned him, but man, I would really love to see you interview Chuck Norris. Perhaps too cliche? Perhaps too mainstream, but it would be a great interview…

It would also be cool to see interviews with Mr. Miyagi, Pony Boy from the Outsiders and the best would be John Bender from the Breakfast Club…or maybe an interview with the full group from the Breakfast Club… especially the principal: “You mess with the bull!…”

Kirk, after each interview I’ve done, I get emails asking for Chuck. I’ll have to come up with something outside of the current Chuckosphere, but one of his roles is certainly going to be in here.

Capt Kirk…I’m sure I’ll think of more.

Josh Hanagarne June 18, 2010 at 2:34 pm

I’m sure you will.

Interesting how everyone has picked TV or movie characters, and no literary ones.

So, I will. Doc from Cannery Row. D’Artagnan from The Three Musketeers. The Count of Monte Cristo. Dr. Frankenstein.

Josh Hanagarne June 18, 2010 at 1:45 pm

They’re probably just following my lead. Thank you for realizing that Frankenstein is the doctor and not the monstor.

Ron Burgundy, Buddy Lee, Steve Zissou, and Slim Goodbody.

Josh Hanagarne June 18, 2010 at 1:47 pm

Buddy Lee…HAHAHAHAHAHAHA. I love it.

Ellen Yates June 18, 2010 at 1:03 pm

No one mentioned Beatrix Kiddo of Kill Bill fame? (Or even better, the Australian stunt chick from Death Proof).

Or Dr. Strangelove?

Reply

Josh Hanagarne June 18, 2010 at 1:45 pm

Ellen, when I was a sophomore in college, I went to a screening of Dr. Strangelove in a pith helmet that said “Death to commies” on it. I thought I was pretty edgy:)

If this post produces nothing besides the Dr. Strangelove prompt, it will have been worth it. Awesome.

Bill, I don’t know if I can handle talking to him again.

I’m belated on this one, but…

Or a Muppet. Like the guy who could imitate a telephone on Sesame Street or the critical guys in the balcony who always trashed Fozzie’s jokes.
