Locker Room

Being Sarah Jessica Parker

Editor's note: I decided to move the "Being" polls over to articles, because it works and we just don't have enough Locker Room blog activity. Let's do this...

I don't hate SJP. I don't really have strong feelings one way or another about her. Sure, sometimes her whining can be annoying, and with the Broncos' love for QB's with faces that look like horses she could probably get a contract. But she's been in a lot of movies I really like, and I've enjoyed TV shows she's been in occasionally. I am envious of her hair most of the time, and her gorgeous eyes...and her shoe collection of course. 
 
Blog Photo - Being Sarah Jessica ParkerI figured since we've covered quite a few guys with Tom Cruise, Kevin Costner, Tom Hanks and Nic Cage, we'd recast a lady. I don't know if she's a good or decent actress...I think she kind of plays similar characters often...but she does comedy well. She's also been around for a long time, so there's a lot to work with.
 
Recast SJP with anyone else in anything she's been in. Maybe you think someone else would be just as good or better, or maybe you just want to see a different perspective. 
 
Just pick a movie and recast. If the one you want isn't here, use it anyway!

Damn..Nick beat me to the horse picture.  Also..does she know her husband is gay?

Hmmm, I have seen all those movies and honestly, except for a handful didn't realize she was in them. I loved her in Square Pegs and her having her head on a dogs body in Mars Attack was hilarious....Sex & the City worked with the ensemble it had and I am not sure I would like it so much without all of them.
Footloose? is that the original or remake.....Rachel Weisz in Dudley Do-Right (i like her chemistry with Brendan Frasier)

I don't find her acting to be more than a'ight. I just looked through that list and have seen most of those movies, I don't even remember her. I've only seen Hocus Pocus and Failure to Launch more than once, and those were for the other characters. I would recast Kristen Bell in Failure to Launch, and Kate Hudson in Sex and the City.

Both great choices. I love Failure to Launch (I don't care who knows it) but I think it would be at least as good with Kristen Bell in it...probably even better.

I think the horse face works for her.  I don't dislike her either. 

In the meantime, I gotta think on this one for a bit.

I'll be back.
