Thursday Morning Massacre: The Movie

With discussion of the Thursday Morning Massacre taking on a cinematic bent -- and because we like flogging a dead horse -- we're certain that it won't be long until the Pittsburgh Film Office starts lobbying for the inevitable movie to be made here in the Burgh.

Wanting to keep in tune with Pittsburgh's new hi-tech rep, we've turned to myheritage.com's face recognition technology to cast the film.

Just keep in mind: My Heritage is the same website that claimed that Wendy Bell looks like Pamela Lee Anderson and that I look like Keira Knightley with my glasses off and Samuel L. Jackson with my glasses on.

(I'm only the messenger! Do not try this at home! Your results may vary!)

Brilliant. I can't decide what is funniest. I think it might be Zach Braff as Peduto.

Zach Braff is hysterical ...Its a man crush dream come true.

PtBreeze said...

Is it true that Bodack is running for City Controller?

Wow! This is going to be an epic, like one of those disaster flicks from the '70's with an all-star cast. Looks like Skrinjar will have to play himself.

Maria said...

Disaster from the 70's -- yep, that about describes much of Pittsburgh city government.

Maria said...

Maybe that's why they want to cut the size of council -- it will save on the budget for the talent.

You've outdone yourself this time, Maria. My goodness. How do you ever expect to get a job in city gov'ment after this atrocity? Holy smokes!!!

This is truly inspired work, Maria!

Funny, but when I input Skrinjar's mug into myheritage.com, he came out a dead-on doppelganger for Pamela Anderson. In fact, so did Tony.

Believe it or not, I usually went with the most flattering choice -- you should have seen who some of these people came up as...males as females, females as males, etc.

Though how Koch came up as Brad Pitt, I'll never know...that was his #1 match.
