question of the day: Who is your dream celebrity casting of a celebrity?

Confused? See, it’s like this: This week we learned that Rachel Weisz will play Jackie Kennedy in an upcoming movie by Darren Aronofsky about the first lady’s life just after her husband’s assassination. And we learned that Robert Pattinson will play Kurt Cobain with Scarlett Johansson as Courtney Love in an upcoming movie from David Fincher.

John Lennon will be played by two wildly different actors in two very different projects. We recently saw the first clips from Christopher Eccleston as the post-Beatles Lennon in Lennon Naked, which will air on BBC Four later this year — enjoy this clip via Blogtor Who:

And Aaron “Kick-Ass” Johnson stars as the very young Lennon in Nowhere Boy [official U.K. site/IMDB], which played theatrically in the U.K. this past winter, and is available for preorder on Region 2 DVD; it’ll open in North America in October.

Oh, and Logan Lerman may (or may not) be playing Spider-Man… except Peter Parker’s not a real person, I’m told.

Anyway, that’s the scoop: Famous dead person needs to be played by an actor in a movie. Who do you pair up? Who is your dream celebrity casting of a celebrity?
