So I've decided to do a remake of The Man Who Fell to Earth *wicked grin*
Directing this porn extravaganza, is none other than the Thin White Duke himself, David Bowie:
Playing the part of that one dude (can't remember his name *cough*) the 40 year old college professor who likes shagging 18 year old students (usually girls) is Mr. Steven Hewitt!
DO ME I'm 18!!
As much as I love David Bowie being naked and all, this just fits better with the theme: gay*cough*
Playing the part of alien (and sex god) Thomas Jerome Newton, our tall, skinny, and well hung alcoholic is: Stefan Olsdal! He's Swedish, so technically can be considered an alien...
Playing the obnoxious Mary Lou, is Sex Goddess Extraordinaire Brian Molko! It is understood that Mary Lou is a fat disgusting cow, whom we all hate. However, she also gets naked and whines a lot. Hence Brian is a perfect candidate.
Also keeping with tradition, the director sleeps with the cast. Bowie slept with Nicolas Roeg, and now he's slept with Molko, so it's all even!
And all the other characters, whom I honestly could care less about...if you have prime suspects who would do well fitting with the rockstar/gay theme, do tell! But remember to remind me who the original character was, as I've forgotten. :-/
No blasphemy meant to the original sex goddyness that is bowie's work, however as he was the only good part of the movie, I believe that Walter Tevis' brilliant book deserves another go!
