The Movie of my Life

I little mental game I like to play is this: if there were to be a movie made of my life, what actor/actress would play each of my friends? Here is my casting so far; if you aren't a friend of mine, this is going to mean nothing to you - you may as well skip it.

Sometimes I pick someone because they look right, sometimes because they act right, sometimes I don't really know why -- they just somehow feel right.

A "*" means I'm not entirely happy with that particular piece of casting, but it's better than the many friends who aren't on the list at all because I haven't come up with anyone remotely right for the part.
