Heath Ledger, because then the Heath Troll would lose interest.
Agree, River - loved him
Montgomery Clift, so that all his admirers at DL can have a go at him. You're welcome.
Michael Jackson and Bruce Lee.
This thread was just here a couple of weeks ago. Put down the pipe Webmaster.
Jon Erik Hexum.
Absolutely ELVIS FUCKING PRESLEY!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Montgomery Clift. I'd cure him of all his troubles and demons and we'd fall madly in love and live happily ever after.
This is of course why I'm single
My only regret in life is never having had sex with him.
Heath. He left a beautiful little girl behind, and he had a lot of movies to make. He was such a free spirit, I am sure he would've entertained us on screen and in real life for many years.
He was an accomplished photographer and I read that he could sing. After he died I read about him. It really was a huge loss. Can I also say how much the Heath Ledger troll disgusts me?
Jesus, because he needs to knock some heads and overturn some tables.
Buster Keaton, of course.
I third River. I would have said Marilyn but I think she'd prefer to be resting in peace.
Another vote for Elvis.
Sean from Corbin Fisher.
Sharon Tate and her unborn baby.
ELVIS PRESLEY and JIMI HENDRIX.
Neil Armstrong; to learn his secrets
To hell with a celebrity. I'd bring back MLK or Bobby Kennedy or Jesus.
Louis Armstrong; to learn his recipies
Anne Frank or MLK Jr.
Abraham Lincoln, to knock some sense into his Republican descendants.
Jimi Hendrix, because he was such a loss to music. I would have loved to see what he would have done in the 70s.
Hendrix, Jim Morrison and Janis Joplin would all be 70 years old in 2013, if you can even imagine.
32 posts and no mention of Judy? You're slipping..
When was Anne Frank ever a celebrity?
R33, out of respect for Judy, we unselfishly wish her peace and rest. She missed these things in life.
Kurt Cobain, just so I could slap him for leaving Courtney with a lynch mob of teenage boys baying for her blood.
On an emotional level: Marilyn Monroe
On an intellectual level: Abraham Lincoln
On a life was/is not fair level: John Erik Hexum
Garbo. I know what she'd say when she came to: "I sink... ahv never been so tired in my life."
Celebrity - Marilyn Monroe
Politician - Bobby Kennedy
Elvis Presley & Freddie Mercury. My two favorite singers of all time.
Definitely ELVIS PRESLEY.
I can't pick one, but here is the short list:
I wouldn't bring back anyone who killed themselves. They wanted to die. That would be rude.
I gotta go with Elvis Aaron Presley.
Runner-ups would be:
Another for Gilda Radner & Phil Hartman. They are my fave SNLerz, ever. Both so brilliant, and taken far too soon.
Errol Flynn. He was deiliciously decadent.
The Eyes of Britney Spears.
ANOTHER VOTE FOR ELVIS
Dusty Springfield for her beautiful voice. - OR - Barbara Stanwyck for decent, hardworking acting talent.
[quote]You can bring ONE dead celebrity back to life.
the first one i thought of was river.
Why no mention of Jani Lane? Whatever happened to our Warrant groupie?
Bruce and Brandon Lee
Lassie, the third one. The rest of them sucked.
Rainer Maria Rilke
Mohammed, Rama, the Buddha, Jesus, Zoroaster, Krishna, Abraham...have a round table
Natalie Wood.... and find out what the heck
REALLY happened that night.
Anna Nicole Smith
Roddy McDowell--and only if he spilled what he knows about Hollywood.
Aww r84, I just watched a Hitchcock Hour with Roddy and was thinking how awesome he was.
James Dean and Rock Hudson
People should check first to make sure they don't have a do not resurrect order.
Jesus Christ, Bette Davis, Henry VIII, and Ethel Merman.
Bobby Darin so that he could meet the man who portrayed him -- Kevin Spacey.
Are there other dead celebrities who have been played in bios who you would bring back to meet their actors.
Another vote for JFK, Jr. Too bad he never embraced his legacy. He would have made a great (and gorgeous) president.
....and don't say he wasn't smart enough--not when we were stuck with fucktard "W" for 8 years.
"Are there other dead celebrities who have been played in bios who you would bring back to meet their actors."
Elizabeth Taylor so she could give Lindsey Lohan a good slap.
JFK jr and Diana Spencer, the Prince and Princess of the People. Then, Now and Forever.
Without a doubt --- Elvis Presley. I loved him so much. Greatest entertainer ever.
Whitney, so I could kill her all over again
William Desmond Taylor.. who done it?
George Carlin. No one was ever so prescient re: 'The American Dream'.
Dolores--Ziegfeld's most beautiful showgirl
Yes, John Kennedy, Jr. would be wonderful to see again.
