Poll: Looking For Imaginary People To Interview

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.


    • Josh Hanagarne June 18, 2010, 9:04 am

      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.

    Neo from the Matrix movies

    • Josh Hanagarne June 18, 2010, 9:04 am

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

  • John June 18, 2010, 7:19 am

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

    Where are the women?

  • ami June 18, 2010, 7:50 am

    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, 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.

  • Jillian June 18, 2010, 8:01 am

    Buffalo Bill from the Silence of the Lambs.

  • Eric | Eden Journal June 18, 2010, 8:11 am

    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, 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!…”

    • Josh Hanagarne June 18, 2010, 9:24 am

      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.

  • Randy Hauer June 18, 2010, 9:46 am

    Pavel? (the DuCane version)

  • Jay Lampas June 18, 2010, 10:14 am

    Mickey O’Neill from Snatch

  • Brandon June 18, 2010, 10:16 am

    Lara Croft

    Cobra Commander

    Fred (from Scooby Doo)

  • Bill Jones June 18, 2010, 10:45 am

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

  • Jodi Kaplan June 18, 2010, 11:20 am

    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, 1:45 pm

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

  • Dan Kemp June 18, 2010, 11:33 am

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

  • Ellen Yates June 18, 2010, 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?

    • Josh Hanagarne June 18, 2010, 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.

  • Fallen Monkey June 23, 2010, 9:49 am

    I’m belated on this one, but…
    Max Fischer from Rushmore.
    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.
