What's My Line?
Who's Line Is It?
The Life And Times of a Lowly Scrivener
Fear And Loathing in the High Tech World
Look Who's Writing

No lack of ego here. I should appear as myself, of course: The Curly Surmudgeon
But if you need more box office clout, I suggest Anthony Hopkins

Deb Ray - Mother Theresa
Eric Ray - Pope John Paul II
Andrew Plato - Johnny Depp or George Carlin
Arlen P. Walker - Karl Malden, Karl Malden
Keith Cronin - Howard Stern
Geoff Hart - John Houseman
John Posada - Marlon Brando
Jane Carnall - Meryl Streep
Maggie Segura - Carrie Fisher

The rest of the list could be played by the Munchkins.
