Ok, I’ve been sifting through the incredible amount of names I got from everyone and it’s been a hard decision. I want to interview a tall celebrity that’s famous enough that most of us will recognize them but is also B list enough that they will speak to someone that writes a blog about being tall. And from the list of name that you guys contributed, that’s harder than you think.
There was a surprising amount of names on the list that I flat out did not recognize. I had never heard of Yao Defen but apparently she is the tallest living lady in the world right now. And while that would make for an interesting interview I’m sure I’d like to focus on someone a little more main stream and who’s job would be impacted by their height not solely make up all they do.
Then I considered the first recommendation I got, which was Stephen King. As many know, Stephen King is a world renown writer. Now THERE’S someone who is definitely not known for his height. I had no idea that he is 6′-4″ tall. But can I get Stephen King? I’m thinking he’s too big a deal to try and get this time around. He’s definitely on my list though.
So what I’ve decided is to just go with 5 names and try a “spray and pray technique“. Shoot it out to every avenue that they have where I could hopefully get in front of them where they might be down to be interviewed. And here is the list you’ve been waiting for:
#1: Ru Paul
Height: 6′- 4″
Reason: I feel like she would be into it. (Bonus: My gay friends would be incredibly jealous if I pulled it off. I’m talking to you Papa)
#3: Paul Gasol
Height: 7′ – 0″
Reason: My little brother would be shocked if I got to talk to this guy. It would also give me another thing to lord over him, like any good older brother looks to do.
#4: James Cromwell
Height: 6′ – 7″
Reason: I stopped acting partly because I thought I was too tall, so I’m curious to see how he feels about it.
#5: Michelle Wie
Height: 6′ – 0″
Reason: How could I not take the opportunity under the guise of writing a blog post as a way to…. interview her. Just…. just… just interview her…. errrrr…. heart emoticon
Here is where you come in for a little bit of help: I’m putting together a list of questions to ask each person and I’d like your help. I need suggestions for interview questions, so please take a minute and fill one in. I don’t care what it is, just give me something to riff off of.
They don’t had to be tall related, but does increase the chances of me asking it. But then again, if your question just sounds awesome, I’ll ask it. What can I say? I’m a whimsical as BOO YAH!!!.
