TWO BRADS, NO WAITING

Now there's more than enough Brad to go around. One for Jennifer, and one for Angelina.

Brad Pitt's set to star in a movie called Chad Schmitt: the plot centers on a struggling 1980s actor who wants to be a celebrity, and realizes he is identical to Brad Pitt. (I wonder who plays Brad's dad? Chad's dad? Egad! I think we've all been had!)

I guess it's like Dave, but with twice the Brad and no future of the free world at stake. Which I guess makes it not like Dave at all.

It may be a little more like Sliding Doors, actually, with dueling Gwynnies. I wonder what would happen if the two Gwynnies from Sliding Doors met up with the two Brads from Chad Schmitt. I think that would yield a Celebrity Deathmatch worth the pay-per-view charge.

More like Bowfinger? Where a film-maker finds a guy who looks like a popular action hero and puts him in a movie?

Are you talking about the movie "Dave" with Kevin Kline? He played both the POTUS and a country-type hick (named Dave) who looked just like him who the Secret Service got to impersonate the president after the President had a heart attack while hooking up with a woman, not his wife, the first lady. Oh, and the first lady was played by Sigourney Weaver! And she fell in love with the Dave who wasn't her husband, thinking it was her husband who had changed and became more considerate and charming.

Is that what you mean by "Dave?" That movie?

Yup, Janice. That's the one.

Anon, I've never seen Bowfinger. But yes, just like that.
