We asked each of the Forty Under 40: They’re making a movie of your life. Is it a drama or comedy, and who plays you?
Comedy and anyone who is a sports fan.
Comedy, anyone but Carrot Top.
Comedy … Bradley Cooper (only because it would allow my wife to finally meet him).
Comedy for sure. Dev Patel would be great, although I wish I had his hair!
Drama and Michael B. Jordan.
Definitely a comedy. Adam Sandler.
A comedy, starring Will Ferrell.
Comedy and John Krasinski.
Drama, Tom Hardy.
Dark comedy. I would be equally thrilled with J Law or J Lo.
It would be a dramedy and the actor would be Jay Ellis, who plays Lawrence on HBO’s “Insecure.”
Drama and Matthew McConaughey.
Drama, John Legend.
Comedy, played by Idris Elba (my wife loves him).
Comedy, Kate Hudson.
Definitely a comedy, and if we’re going comedy I’m doing everything I can to get Will Ferrell to play me. He’s the best.
It’s a comedy, probably with somebody like John C. Reilly.
Comedy, Jonah Hill.
Comedy, John Krasinski.
Comedy and John Cho from “Harold & Kumar.”
It’s probably a comedy. Now that I’m married, perhaps it’s a romantic comedy? Who plays me? Someone once told me that I look like Elijah Wood, so maybe him although being compared to the Hobbit wasn’t the most exciting thing I’ve ever been told. If I had my way, I’d pick someone like Mark Wahlberg.
Comedy, Priyanka Chopra.
Let’s go action/comedy — Jason Statham.
A comedy starring Jeff Goldblum.
Definitely a comedy starring Seth Rogan.
My life rights aren’t for sale, SBJ.
It would be a dramedy with elements of drama, comedy and all the pieces in between that make life beautiful and I would be played by Amandla Stenberg (young me) and Kerry Washington (current me).
Definitely a comedy and the actor would be cousin Ryan Reynolds (not really my cousin, but seems like a fun guy to hang out with).
It’s an uplifting Moneyball-esque movie with comedic elements starring my Hollywood doppelganger who can bring the laughs: Seth McFarlane.
It is definitely a dramatic comedy — some ups and downs but overall the funny and bright moments outshine the others. Since the movie isn’t likely to warrant big studio attention, I’d like to give myself a shot at playing the role.
Comedy, Benny from the “The Sandlot.” He’s the only actor I’ve ever been told I look like.
Drama and Rob Schneider, of course.
Dramedy, Mark Wahlberg.
God, I hope it’s not a drama. Maybe a dramedy with a happy ending. Sandra Bullock.
Sitcom, starring (a younger) Ty Burrell.
Definitely a comedy, Will Ferrell.
It’s a drama and I have to say Jim Carrey because people say I look like him.
A comedy starring Ron Howard.
Drama. Sandra Bullock.
