Hey Walter if you meant
Gerald Mcraney

Close but don't quite think so
I'll stick with my earlier suggestion Lawrence Of Arabia/Mr Chipping

Since you seem to be obsessed with this topic it's about time you made the effort as Laurel did to understand my tutorial for
displaying pics and show your own suggestions!!!

Maybe Gord could play himself as the "older Gord" and I would be happy to play his woman!

I was amazed that Gord was so short and so skinny when I met him. I thought about just picking him up and tucking him under my arm and run like hell! But truth be known, he was a bit taller than me. I am 5' so most anyone is taller than me. I think I weighed more though, wow isn't THAT exciting!

Well John I did try to undertake your tutorial but I just couldn't get the hang of it. Getting the directions straight was a lot like trying to make sense of rap lyrics.

No reflection on you in that statemaent of course. I agree with you and Mr. Chippie! With a moustache he just might be passable. I'm not obsessed witht the topic,I just thought of it again when I watched that MASH episode.

Perhaps I am kind of grasping at straws here but I know it would be realy great movie with the right star(s) and people behind it. Well,dreamin' on...been me. Later!

I had to pull this thread up after watching "Little Miss Sunshine" on Saturday. Bryan Cranston had a minor role, and IMO he is looking more and more like Gord every time I see him. He's a dead ringer for him 70s era.

BTW...good movie.

Thanks for bringing this back up Lavender,this was one of my first really good topics,if not my first one at all.

Wow, I agree that Michael Parks is a clone of a younger Gordon Lightfoot.

Thank's B.Stone & D.S.Rose. Im really happy to see that someone else sees the resemblance. I thought for a while that it was just me...

There is also a B&W photo of a young Gord Lightfoot in the Book, Someday Soon, by: Douglas Fetherling.






Photo of Book found on Googles, courtesy of: www.lightfoot.ca/someday.jpg

Click on the photo, to go to lightfoot.ca for more books about, Gordon Lightfoot...


He does look like Conan Obrien. I wish I could find this photo on the Internet. Putting one of Conan next to it, youd be amazed. BTW, Conan sometimes play the guitar on his talk show, and when I see him, I always think about that pic from the book...

Once again,I'm not joking. I can't post a picture but I kid you not! Borderstone,outta here & Alberta Bound! Or is it Hollywood ???????
Hi Borderstone. This is the first time I saw this and it's March 13, again. Must be one of those days. 3+13+07

I say in Michael Parks we have the hands down winner for young Gordon.

Yeah Patti,03/13,pretty weird huh? Then,I always have felt this topic drifted off and was incomplete,so maybe it was destined to resurface with Mr. Parks now being in the picture.

TSwish63,Jack Palance passed away last year.

Besides,even if living he'd have been too tall to portray Gordon.

Michael Parks is a dead ringer for Gordon as a younger man!

Sam Elliot comes to mind as an older Gordon. He's a great actor. Plus they've both got lots of hair and a big 'stache! :D

Yes! Second that! (or third now or fourth), but what about an older Lightfoot?? And who could sing like Gord? They would have to "lip sync". Did
Jaqouin Phoenix (Hope he will forgive me for the misspelling of his name)do his own singing in the Johnny Cash movie??

Shouldn't Michael Parks be quite a bit older now?
I thought his series was on when our kids where young and now we are grandparents.

Or is he too tall too? Boy,if this keeps up,we may end up casting Don Knotts! (Oh,wait...too old.)
U-m-m, hasn't Don Knotts passed on?? I think so,
if not my apologies to him.

I really wish people would notice the dates of messages before they post.

Louise,I posted that humorous comment about Don Knotts back on August 16th,2004. That was a good 1 year & 1/2 before he passed on in February of 2006.

I was certainly kidding of course.

What about Jack Wagner who plays Nick Marone in "The Bold and the Beautiful?" He's not just a soap star. I've seen him in a couple of movies and he's a pretty good actor. He could easily play a younger Gordon and with makeup, etc., could portray Gordon in later years.

Just a thought.

Sorry about the repeat. I have absolutely no idea why that message was printed twice. When I try to delete one, it takes them both away. So please accept my apology.
