We love to love smartass Juno screenwriter and ex-dancing girl Diablo Cody. But not in a weird way, like this guy. He wrote an essay about the "at least nine things" they have in common, and recently accosted a lookalike screenwriter on the WGA picket line, mistaking her for Cody. "My sign today on the picket lines at NBC," he blogs. "ASK ME ABOUT THE NINE THINGS I HAVE IN COMMON WITH DIABLO CODY." OK, fine. What are they?
I'm not talking about stuff like we like the same beers, movies, books, NONE OF THAT-what I am talking about are the things that make a person who that person is-background, specific directions within a chosen career path, things that happen to us all-some voluntary and some involuntary-that have shaped her and I into the people we are and are becoming.
...I'm not revealing all of them because I did so in a personal E-Mail to Diablo/Brook and I'm looking forward very much to talking with her.
...Diablo/Brook is a terrific person from everything I know about her and like the real life girl in this project I am looking forward to what I hope with all my heart is a lifelong friendship.
My sign today on the picket lines at NBC:
SIDE 1: "ASK ME ABOUT NINE THINGS I HAVE IN COMMON WITH DIABLO CODY"
It's OK, man. We all harbor unrealistic crushes.
