    meh.
      Carrie-Anne Moss .... Trinity

        I like that choice, but only if she gets all the guns she had in the Matrix.

        And she can't have sex in the movie with Keanu Reeves, either.

      War is an ugly thing, but not the ugliest of things. The decayed and degraded state of moral and patriotic feeling which thinks that “nothing is worth war” is much worse. The person who has nothing for which he is willing to fight, nothing which is more important than his own personal safety, is a miserable creature and has no chance of being free unless made and kept so by the exertions of better men than himself. -- John Stuart Mill

    What, I get no mention? Geez. What's a fairy got to do these days to get a gig? Strap on wings, flutter around some kid's window and tell him to wish real hard he could fly?

    Bah. That's how I lost my last job. Stupid kids. They're not supposed to jump, it's just a metaphor.

    grumble.

      They're not supposed to jump, it's just a metaphor.

      This has been bugging me for a day now. I know I've heard that line somewhere before, but I can't think of where.

    Joe Black: Should you choose to test my resolve in this matter, you will be facing a finality beyond your comprehension, and you will not be counting days, or months, or years, but millenniums in a place with no doors.

    Rewritten as:
    Joe Black: Should you choose not to read the manual, you will be facing -- votes. Not for days, or months, or years, or millenniums but for as long at the SuperSearch exits and the NodeReaper sleeps......

    In fact, that's a good point. Joe black would do better as the NodeReaper!
    Now where do I retract my vote?

      I disagree that she'd be appropriate for that role. I upvoted you anyway, though, for the link.

    If Josephine Hull can't pull off the role, nobody can. I know of no better actress. The only thing is, we need time-travel capability to fetch her. Will that be a problem?

    Sanity? Oh, yeah, I've got all kinds of sanity. In fact, I've developed whole new kinds of sanity. You can just call me "Mister Sanity". Why, I've got so much sanity it's driving me crazy.

    Another CGI voter here. I've always pictured the vote fairy as a Tinkerbell-type. Not very creative of me, now that I think about it.

    My favorite fairy is still the Paycheck Fairy though. :) I leave my timesheet on her desk and she turns it into money overnight - woo!

    It's all fine and dandy until someone has to look at the code.

    Helena Bonham Carter .... Corpse Bride
    Claymation

    Those are redundant choices. The Corpse Bride was claymation. Unless you mean "other claymation", in which case "other actor/actress/role" is conspicuously missing.

    Yes, CGI is definitely the answer, to get us the only one magic enough - Glinda the Good Witch. Of course, Harpo would be a great stand-in. It's not only NodeReaper that gets indigestion from reapable nodes!

    My write-in is for Helen Mirren as Titania, Queen of Fairies from Midsummer Night's Dream

    emc

    At that time [1909] the chief engineer was almost always the chief test pilot as well. That had the fortunate result of eliminating poor engineering early in aviation.

      Mother of God. marto, it's those kinds of thoughts that makes 19 year old males such as myself want to wake up in the morning :-)

      meh.
        The absinthe fairy is cute and all, and who doesn't like a visit from her every now and again, but those of us who are closer to 29 appreciate the mature subtlety that Helena Bonham Carter brings. I'm kind of sorry to admit it, but that woman is damn fine whether she's playing a Shakespearean countess, a suicide girl, an ape, or a corpse.

    Of the given options I chose Alice Krige, but my first inclination was to choose Bryce Dallas Howard.

    Definitely Ned Flanders for the Vote Fairy, but also definitely Arnold SchwarZenegger as He Who Must Not Be Named.

    I always kind of pictured the vote fairy as the Nerve-Ending Fairy from Ren and Stimpy, which is disturbing, I know.

    While you're casting PerlMonks: The Motion Picture, I think you should consider who is to portray the Hand of Fate, vroom and the other various gods, many of the more important denizens (soon-to-be Master of the World -- possibly she would be adequate -- , planetscape, merlyn, brian_d_foy, chromatic, ovid,…), and The Nameless One. We could easily end up with a larger cast than a Cecil B DeMille epic.
