Famous People Meme — (sorry, I forget who challenged me on this)

Which famous person in each of the following categories would you like to meet?

Author — Stephen King. My writing and reading idol since I picked up my first "adult" book at the tender age of 12.

Movie Actor — Gerard Butler. Man, he's hot.

TV Actor — Steve Carell. Man, he's funny.

Musician/Singer — Ella Fitzgerald. The first lady of song. One of the most influential jazz vocalists ever.

Historical Figure — Alexandra David-Neel. Female explorer/ adventurer/ author. No other western woman ever traveled to and explored so many places.

Fictional Book Character(s) — Rhage and Mary from Lover Eternal, or maybe Acheron and Simi from Kenyon's Dark Hunter books, or Anita Blake from LK Hamilton's series, or...I could really go on and on here.

Fictional Movie or TV Character — Blade. You gotta love a badass half-vampire with a shiny sword and a hero complex. I never liked the short-lived television show, but the movies rocked. And definitely, of the three, Blade: Trinity is my favorite since I get to see Wesley Snipes AND Ryan Reynolds.

Okay, tell me your picks.

This is a great meme, and I have to agree Gerard Butler is king of hotness. I wonder if he realizes how many romance writers base their characters on him?

No kidding! Wow.

I'm with you on Stephen, Gerard, Steve and Blade Trinity (mixing horror with good comedy worked well for me).
Good taste, my friend!
