With all of the documentary activity going on in the Squid Cave (Steve and Kat's laboratory), and the promise of yet more exciting discoveries to come, perhaps Hollywood will finally get around to developing a property or two about big teuthids and the men and women who love them. If that happens, who should play Steve O'Shea, and who should play Kat Bolstad?

You're waaaay off. I'd say John C. Reilly and Mandy Moore.
Ladies & Gentlemen,

This is the end. This is the end of poll-taking.

ps: "joelozito," we all know your real name is Paul Thomas Anderson, so just stop it.

OK, first of all, if Johnny Depp's involved, I'm playing my own sweet self.
But I have to say, it would be cool if Julia Stiles would do the honors, since her film career seems to be tracking my life anyway (with a few exceptions) - first Kat in 10 Things I Hate About You and now a student at Wellesley, in Mona Lisa Smile. People keep telling me I look like her, but for the record, I'm older, so she looks like me. She's my stunt-double, you know. :P
And we did come up with someone for Steve not too long ago... there have been suggestions of Tom Cruise, but I'm sure someone much more suitable has also been mentioned...

For those really dangerous jobs, like crossing the office to remove certain articles featuring certain entertainers from certain bulletin boards.

Steve: You...complete...me.
Kat: You had me from "Sort through these stomach contents."

I'll update the poll as suggestions come in.

I'm not sure who that Emily person is (out of touch), but I like the idea of Bill Murray as Steve.

:oshea:, chasing squid instead of groundhogs...

Emily Watson is FAAAABULOUS! My favourite actress, actually. Amazingly talented. She's been in Breaking the waves, The boxer, Hilary and Jackie, Red Dragon, Punch drunk love, and others I can't remember right now. She hasn't done anything hugely mainstream, so its easy not to have heard of her.

Windsor Davies and Gillian Anderson.
Phil, who is Windsor Davies?

Steve, Johhny Depp would do you proud; he incarnated Hunter S. Thompson in Terry Gilliam's "Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas," Ed Wood in Tim Burton's "Ed Wood" and a polymorphously perverse pirate in Gore Verbinski's "Pirates of the Carrribean."

I just hope the parts aren't taken by some irksome real-life couple eager to blur the work/home boundaries. Ford and Flockhart, Affleck and -Lo, I'm looking in your direction.

I've made a few adjustments to the poll, and removed my own bit of perversity, the Benigni & Paltrow pairing. Don't want to give Harvey Weinstein any ideas.

Steve should be played by Bruce Campbell.
Scarmig,

In place of one arm, would he attach a small net? Or a gas-powered ceramic peanut?

With Campbell on board, Sam Raimi might be interested in directing.
