You can bring one dead celebrity back to life

Who would you resurrect?

by Lazarusreply 23107/25/2016

Probably River.

by Lazarusreply 102/14/2013

Heath Ledger, because then the Heath Troll would lose interest.

by Lazarusreply 202/14/2013

Ken Russell or Stanley Kubrick

by Lazarusreply 302/14/2013

Abraham Lincoln.

by Lazarusreply 402/14/2013

Agree, River - loved him

by Lazarusreply 502/14/2013

John Lennon

by Lazarusreply 602/14/2013

Montgomery Clift, so that all his admirers at DL can have a go at him. You're welcome.

by Lazarusreply 702/14/2013

Michael Jackson and Bruce Lee.

by Lazarusreply 802/14/2013

Phil Hartman.

by Lazarusreply 902/14/2013

This thread was just here a couple of weeks ago. Put down the pipe Webmaster.

by Lazarusreply 1002/14/2013

Jon Erik Hexum.

by Lazarusreply 1102/14/2013

Absolutely ELVIS FUCKING PRESLEY!!!!!!!!!!!!!

by Lazarusreply 1202/14/2013

Montgomery Clift. I'd cure him of all his troubles and demons and we'd fall madly in love and live happily ever after.

by Lazarusreply 1302/14/2013

Rick Nelson.

My only regret in life is never having had sex with him.

by Lazarusreply 1402/14/2013

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?

by Lazarusreply 1502/14/2013

Jesus, because he needs to knock some heads and overturn some tables.

by Lazarusreply 1602/14/2013

Buster Keaton, of course.

by Lazarusreply 1702/14/2013

walt whitman

by Lazarusreply 1802/14/2013

I third River. I would have said Marilyn but I think she'd prefer to be resting in peace.

by Lazarusreply 1902/14/2013

Another vote for Elvis.

by Lazarusreply 2002/14/2013

Sean from Corbin Fisher.

by Lazarusreply 2102/14/2013

by Lazarusreply 2402/14/2013

Neil Armstrong; to learn his secrets

by Lazarusreply 2502/14/2013

To hell with a celebrity. I'd bring back MLK or Bobby Kennedy or Jesus.

by Lazarusreply 2602/14/2013

Tyrone Power

by Lazarusreply 2702/14/2013

Louis Armstrong; to learn his recipies

by Lazarusreply 2802/14/2013


by Lazarusreply 2902/14/2013

Anne Frank or MLK Jr.

by Lazarusreply 3002/14/2013

Abraham Lincoln, to knock some sense into his Republican descendants.

by Lazarusreply 3102/14/2013

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.

by Lazarusreply 3202/14/2013

32 posts and no mention of Judy? You're slipping..

by Lazarusreply 3302/14/2013

Bob Marley

by Lazarusreply 3402/14/2013

When was Anne Frank ever a celebrity?

by Lazarusreply 3502/14/2013

Princess Di

by Lazarusreply 3602/14/2013

R33, out of respect for Judy, we unselfishly wish her peace and rest. She missed these things in life.

RIP, Judy.

Kurt Cobain, just so I could slap him for leaving Courtney with a lynch mob of teenage boys baying for her blood.

by Lazarusreply 4502/14/2013

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."

by Lazarusreply 5002/14/2013

Celebrity - Marilyn Monroe

Politician - Bobby Kennedy

by Lazarusreply 5102/14/2013

Erich von Stroheim

by Lazarusreply 5202/14/2013

MLK for not-celeb, Elvis for celeb.

by Lazarusreply 5302/14/2013

Lennon. What music would he have made after Double Fantasy, which is awesome? We'll never know. The world was robbed.

by Lazarusreply 5402/14/2013

Freddy Mercury.

by Lazarusreply 5502/14/2013


by Lazarusreply 5602/14/2013

Madeline Kahn. No question.

by Lazarusreply 5702/14/2013

Elvis Presley & Freddie Mercury. My two favorite singers of all time.

by Lazarusreply 5802/14/2013


by Lazarusreply 5902/14/2013

I can't pick one, but here is the short list:

Florence Ballard

Judy Garland

Princess Diana

Gianni Versace

Andy Warhol

by Lazarusreply 6002/14/2013

I wouldn't bring back anyone who killed themselves. They wanted to die. That would be rude.

by Lazarusreply 6102/14/2013

I gotta go with Elvis Aaron Presley.

Runner-ups would be:

John Lennon

George Harrison

Jimi Hendrix

Freddie Mercury

Steve McQueen

Bon Scott

Lee Marvin

by Lazarusreply 6202/14/2013

Another for Gilda Radner & Phil Hartman. They are my fave SNLerz, ever. Both so brilliant, and taken far too soon.

by Lazarusreply 6302/14/2013

Franz Schubert

by Lazarusreply 7202/14/2013

the first one i thought of was river.

by Lazarusreply 7302/14/2013

Why no mention of Jani Lane? Whatever happened to our Warrant groupie?

by Lazarusreply 7402/14/2013

Bruce and Brandon Lee

by Lazarusreply 7502/14/2013

Lassie, the third one. The rest of them sucked.

Roddy McDowell--and only if he spilled what he knows about Hollywood.

by Lazarusreply 8402/14/2013

Keanu's career

People should check first to make sure they don't have a do not resurrect order.

by Lazarusreply 9502/15/2013


by Lazarusreply 9602/15/2013

Jesus Christ, Bette Davis, Henry VIII, and Ethel Merman.

by Lazarusreply 9702/15/2013

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.

by Lazarusreply 9802/15/2013

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.

by Lazarusreply 9902/15/2013

"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.

by Lazarusreply 10002/15/2013

JFK jr and Diana Spencer, the Prince and Princess of the People. Then, Now and Forever.

by Lazarusreply 10102/15/2013

Without a doubt --- Elvis Presley. I loved him so much. Greatest entertainer ever.

by Lazarusreply 10202/15/2013

Whitney, so I could kill her all over again

by Lazarusreply 10302/15/2013

Freddie Mercury

by Lazarusreply 10402/15/2013

William Desmond Taylor.. who done it?

by Lazarusreply 10502/15/2013

George Carlin. No one was ever so prescient re: 'The American Dream'.

by Lazarusreply 10602/16/2013

by Lazarusreply 11502/16/2013

Yes, John Kennedy, Jr. would be wonderful to see again.

by Lazarusreply 11602/16/2013


by Lazarusreply 11706/06/2013

Bambi's Mother

by Lazarusreply 11806/06/2013

Elizabeth Taylor - my favorite movie star/humanitarian. I still miss her.

by Lazarusreply 11912/01/2014

I have an autograph of Elizabeth Taylor's, R119.

Why are people so crazy about River Phoenix?

Also, OP wrote "ONE" person to bring back, sadly, his powers of resurrection are not unlimited!

I'd also vote for Jesus, if he's a "celebrity". He's got a lot of splainin' to do.

by Lazarusreply 12012/01/2014


by Lazarusreply 12112/01/2014

Freddie Mercury

by Lazarusreply 12212/01/2014

Carl Sagan

Neil Armstrong

by Lazarusreply 12312/01/2014

Joan Rivers. Horrible way to go for someone who still had a lot of life left, even at her age.

Madeline Kahn. I'd like to think she'd still be hilarious.

Laura Branigan, even though she would probably still be underrated.

by Lazarusreply 12412/01/2014

I'd need to write out a list of who I'd bring back, but off the top of my head I can definitely think of one I wouldn't.

by Lazarusreply 12512/01/2014


by Lazarusreply 12612/01/2014

"One"! You can only have one! Choose, Sophie!

by Lazarusreply 12712/01/2014

Jon-Erik Hexum!

by Lazarusreply 12812/01/2014

Dean Martin

by Lazarusreply 12912/01/2014

Jonathan Brandis. It was such a tragedy, he was way too young.

by Lazarusreply 13012/01/2014

Anna Pavlova

by Lazarusreply 13112/01/2014

Dean Martin was dead ten years before he died, R129.

by Lazarusreply 13212/01/2014

[quote]Jesus, because he needs to knock some heads and overturn some tables.

He'd be sent to GITMO once his more fanatical followers saw him.

by Lazarusreply 13312/01/2014

I have a three-way tie.

Nat King Cole

Patsy Cline

Johnny Carson

by Lazarusreply 13412/01/2014

James Gandolfini. I just loved that man.

by Lazarusreply 13512/01/2014

I'd love to see Jesus critique all the Tea Partiers who go around insulting people in his name, or the woman who had to "pray for hours" to decide it wasn't nice to attack the President's daughters. Personally, I think he would die of apoplexy about five minutes after hearing all the crap Republicans say he was for, but still...

It would be fun to see Republicans discover that camo-wearing, AK-47 carrying Jesus was actually a dirty Commie hippie with sandals and long hair that told rich people to pay their taxes and give all their money away to the poor. You would have to wear a coverall to protect yourself from all the heads exploding.

by Lazarusreply 13612/01/2014

Natalie Wood .... she should've been here another 40 years.

by Lazarusreply 13712/01/2014

Some of you apparently haven't read "The Monkey's Paw."

This won't end well AT ALL.

by Lazarusreply 13812/01/2014

Another just occured to me. I wish I could bring back Audrey Hepburn.

by Lazarusreply 13912/01/2014

[quote]When was Anne Frank ever a celebrity?

She was planning to be one -- she wanted to come to Hollywood and be a star. There is a memorial to her at Hollywood cemetery commemorating this.

by Lazarusreply 14012/01/2014

Male: Henny Youngman

Female: Gilda Radner

by Lazarusreply 14112/01/2014

Freddie Prinze. Shocked when he died.

JFK, Jr. for his pure beauty.

Brian Jones (Rolling Stones). Who killed him or did he really just drown?

by Lazarusreply 14212/01/2014

Jimi Hendrix!

by Lazarusreply 14312/01/2014

Reincarnation is real!

by Lazarusreply 14412/01/2014

Jon-Erik Hexum

by Lazarusreply 14712/01/2014

Jeff Buckley

by Lazarusreply 14812/01/2014

I think bringing back JFK Jr. might be best for everyone.

There are too many celebs to name, maybe Chris Farley?

by Lazarusreply 14912/01/2014

Tallulah Bankhead

Ted Knight

Agnes Moorehead

by Lazarusreply 15012/01/2014


by Lazarusreply 15112/01/2014

Janet Jackson.

by Lazarusreply 15212/01/2014

Debby Boone.

by Lazarusreply 15312/01/2014


by Lazarusreply 15412/01/2014

Wilfried Knight.

by Lazarusreply 15512/01/2014

My heart broke when Jeff Buckley died. So underrated as a songwriter.

by Lazarusreply 15612/01/2014

Judy Garland, so she could go to rehab, play Carlota in "Follies" and go die again, most likely!

by Lazarusreply 15712/01/2014

Stritch. But the Stritch of the early 2000s when she still had (most) of her wits about her. There is, quite simply, no one like her.

by Lazarusreply 15812/01/2014

Orange Octopus

by Lazarusreply 15912/01/2014


by Lazarusreply 16012/01/2014

Elliott Smith

by Lazarusreply 16112/01/2014

Oh, Elliott, R161. God, I wish he was still music.

by Lazarusreply 16212/01/2014

Heath Ledger

River Phoenix

Curt Cobain

Paul Walker

John Eric Hexum

Those are my top five, in that order.

by Lazarusreply 16312/01/2014

Beatrice Stella Tanner

by Lazarusreply 16412/01/2014

Mae West

by Lazarusreply 16512/01/2014

Dominick Dunne so he can keep doing "Power, Privilege and Justice."

Harvey Milk

by Lazarusreply 16612/01/2014

Joseph Patrick Kennedy, Jr. He was gorgeous and wonder if he would've become President.

by Lazarusreply 16712/01/2014

r166. That is eerie, I was going to say Dominick Dunne too because I loved his books and VF articles. Cue the Twilight Zone theme...

by Lazarusreply 16812/01/2014

Lenny Bruce

Pope John Paul the first

by Lazarusreply 16912/02/2014

R168 Why is it eerie? Many of his books are of the very same nature as the TV show.

by Lazarusreply 17012/02/2014

Stylish English actress Kay Kendall who died far too young in 1959. We would love to have her around now.

by Lazarusreply 17112/02/2014

Young Marlon Brando. I'm obsessed

by Lazarusreply 17212/02/2014

Then bring back James Dean.

by Lazarusreply 17312/02/2014

They were lovers. So bring them both back and have a kiki

by Lazarusreply 17412/02/2014

Elizabeth Taylor, Anne Bancroft, and Lucille Ball

by Lazarusreply 17512/02/2014

Not exactly celebrated (in most circles), but Lee Harvey Oswald might be good value in an open-ended interview broadcast live.

by Lazarusreply 17612/02/2014

Albert Einstein.

Abe Lincoln.

Jon Erik Hexum- For my own pleasure exclusively.

Ben Franklin.

Leonardo Da Vinci.

Rodney Dangerfield because he was one funny man. George Carlin too. Thomas Jefferson and George Washington.

by Lazarusreply 17712/02/2014

Robin Williams.

by Lazarusreply 17812/02/2014

Nicolas Tesla

by Lazarusreply 17912/02/2014

Sorry to be a killjoy, but some of these men and woman lived full lives. Ben Franklin, Eileen Stritch, Liz Taylor, others. Part of the fun of living is knowing that there are no return engagements. You've got one shot. I can see the fun of thinking about Jon Eric Hexum, an empty-headed blond, but what a man! He died too young, and it would be fun to have seen him turn into decrepitude. But, as much as I loved Henny Youngman, and think his comedy deserves to be required viewing for the youth of America, the man was so far past his freshness date he was lucky he wasn't buried prematurely. Some people earned their eternal rest!

by Lazarusreply 18012/02/2014

R179, that's it? You get one vote, and it's Tesla? Are you a nerd? I think you must be going for your certification as a third degree nerd at Nerd U. What about Newton? Possibly the most intelligent man to have ever lived? Or Darwin, perhaps?

by Lazarusreply 18112/02/2014

Fred Astaire

by Lazarusreply 18212/02/2014

That little boy they killed every week on South Park, Timmie.

by Lazarusreply 18312/02/2014

I think you mean Kenny, R183.

by Lazarusreply 18412/02/2014

The other Judy--Judy Holliday. A terrific "comedienne" with a genius IQ and she was only 44 when she died.

by Lazarusreply 18512/02/2014

Ethel Merman.

So all those theater queens who think Bernadette Peters or Patti LuPone were the 'definitive Rose' could see how it's really done.

by Lazarusreply 18612/02/2014

Do they still kill Kenny?

by Lazarusreply 18712/02/2014

[quote]So all those theater queens who think Bernadette Peters or Patti LuPone were the 'definitive Rose' could see how it's really done.

Can you wait until I finish mine?

by Lazarusreply 18812/02/2014

R170 is that you, Keanu?

by Lazarusreply 18912/02/2014

Katharine Hepburn

by Lazarusreply 19012/02/2014

Bob Hoskins.

He was both menacing and charming. Not very many actors today could pull off what he did.

by Lazarusreply 19112/02/2014

Kirsty MacColl

Joe Strummer

Anita Morris

by Lazarusreply 19212/02/2014

Spalding Gray.

by Lazarusreply 19312/02/2014

Not as often anymore, R187. I think it's more infrequent now. They killed him off in so many ways, they started running out of ideas on how to do it.

by Lazarusreply 19412/02/2014


by Lazarusreply 19512/02/2014

I was watching Clueless last night and realized how much I miss Brittney Murphy (when she was chubbier & had more personality).

Fred Ebb.

by Lazarusreply 19812/02/2014

I thought maybe Janet, but no, she couldn't get any colder.

by Lazarusreply 19912/04/2014

If JFK had never been assassinated... what would be different now? Or did he "have to die"/whatever (I don't think anything GOOD came out of it though).

by Lazarusreply 20012/04/2014

Liberty Vallance. If I brought him back to life, I could kill him, and get away with it, right? Because that would be kinda cool.

by Lazarusreply 20112/07/2014

Elvis Presley for the win. Could you imagine (even fat) Elvis still touring every so often like nothing .

by Lazarusreply 22607/25/2016

Lennon - not for his music, but rather his running commentary. Although I would have liked to go to one of his old man shows.

He also could have 'mentored' Kurt, instead of Kurt having to make do with Sonic Youth and Neil Young.
