New Happy Hour Game: Real Doppelganger/Fantasy Doppelganger

Remember when everyone on Facebook was setting a picture of their "celebrity doppelganger" as their profile photo? In reality, they were posting a picture of someone much more attractive then themselves, or perhaps someone that they were once told they resembled, probably by a kind Aunt or a dude trying to get in their pants at the bar.

Inspired by this trend, HB and I played a game of Real Doppelganger/Fantasy Doppelganger via IM yesterday. How do you play? Well, it's a game in the vein of f/marry/kill: totally hypothetical with the potential for hilarity and psychological insight. It's simple: just go around the room and have everyone state who would really play them in a movie, and who would play them in a movie if their mother/number 1 fan was casting the film.

Fantasy doppelganger: Cobie Smulders (that chick from How I Met Your Mother) or pre-crazy Katie Holmes

Real doppelganger: Post-anorexia (with bonus drug phase) Mischa Barton or Janeane Garofalo:

Now go play this game and report back to me on your results.
