One of my favorite weekly podcasts is Nerd Lunch, where the hosts (and two fellow League members) CT, Paxton, and Jeeg, talk about a variety of pop culture topics and “What Ifs.” On a recent episode, they talked about the Expendables movie, and put together their own dream cast for a movie. I absolutely loved this idea, and asked CT if I could steal it for this week’s League topic. He graciously agreed, so here is your challenge for this week:
You are a big shot Hollywood movie producer with an unlimited budget. You need to assemble the ultimate ensemble cast for a movie that is sure to fill every movie theater seat around the world. Who do you hire and what kind of film are you going to make?
(If you’re looking for some inspiration, go listen to the Nerd Lunch podcast #22.)
Once you put up a post on your site add a comment below with the URL. Next Monday, I will put up a post here on Cool & Collected with a list of all the contributing blogs. Once that list is posted, if you haven’t already done so, try to incorporate at least three of your fellow League members’ links (but more would be great!) into the article you wrote on your site.
By cross-posting like this, we will help each other out by sending new readers to each other’s sites. Have fun!
(Wondering what the heck this is all about? We’re recruiting for this loose-knit, rag tag crew! Here are the details for joining The League.)
Brilliant! And i have just the ideal too. : )
Can’t wait to see what you come up with Jboy!
I haven’t been able to do the last couple of challenges and I don’t want to miss out on this one!
Where have you been?! Did they take away your twitter priveleges at work? 😉
HAHA! Damn near! It’s been so busy I’ve hardly had time to check Twitter. I’ve also finely got some motivation to work on a few scripts that have been laying around for over a year. It’s amazing what you can get done if you get off the grid every now and then. 😉
Paxton Holley says
Aha! Yes, this is a great topic. One of my favorites that we’ve done.
I’m going to do this, but CT is probably going to yell at me to “SAVE IT FOR THE PODCAST!” I’m going to go by the rules of the podcast in that the actors/actresses have to still be living.
Now, for the genre……..
I remember listening to you guys during the podcast and wanting throw a few names into the ring, and I’ve been looking forward to posting this topic for a while. It should generate some fun responses.
Glad you’re going with this topic. And I’m anxious to jump back into League posts, but until I get done with my schooling, I don’t see that happening. Looking forward to seeing what everyone does with this topic!
I just found out about this so I’m new to the game, but I am going to try this out. I’m excited about it. Such a fun topic! and such a good idea!
Glad you signed on this week, Ashley! You win the honorary prize for the first entry of the week, stealing the title from Mr. Tupa who has won it every week so far! Nicely done: http://www.lifewithfandom.com/2012/03/leugue-week-5-my-hollywood-blockbuster.html
Paxton Holley says
Brian, mine is mostly done. It should post on Friday morning.
I casted a team of computer hackers.
Interesting! I’m looking forward to it!
Kevin Hellions says
Another awesome League assignment! Mine is far too long and hopefully just as awesome.
Kevin, you had me at Eliza Dushku. 😉
Here’s mine – sorry it took me until today to get this posted, but I’ve been really busy all week!
I love the casting in this one! There is one person who keeps showing up in this week’s responses. It seems like this Kate Beckinsale gal is fairly popular.
I think she’s the go-to girl for ”strong, independent women” – i.e. she wears tight clothes and shoots guns in slow motion.

Here’s mine! Close call as always, LOL
