Who Do You Think Should Play O’Grady?

President Clinton first brought the idea before the American people - that the Scott O’Grady story would make a terrific movie - and Hollywood honchos have been drooling ever since.

The script has plenty of drama: An Air Force fighter pilot eludes Bosnian Serbs for six days after being shot down, eating bugs and drinking the sweat from his socks.

Now, the biggest question facing the nation is which actor should portray Spokane’s newest favorite son?

Keanu Reeves? He’s leaped out of doomed vehicles, in “Speed.”

Tom Cruise? He’s flown fighters, in “Top Gun.”

Chris O’Donnell? He’s a hero, in “Batman Forever.”

Brad Pitt? He’s survived in the wild, in “Legends of the Fall.”

Christian Slater? He’s hidden from bad guys, in “Gleaming the Cube.”

Just for some fun, who would you pick? One of them? Someone else?

Let us know by calling Cityline. Here’s how:

A touch-tone phone is required. In Eastern Washington, call (509) 458-8800 and once the connection is made, enter category 9890. In North Idaho call (208) 765-8811, category 9896. Cityline is free, but normal charges apply to long-distance calls.
