Whatever happened to Bjergen Kjergen?

An aside from Lisa in her examination of NBC’s comedy series Community:

I have a long standing order in to Hollywood that Drew Barrymore is to play me in all TV and film adaptations of my life.

A perfectly reasonable choice. I have no idea whether there’s any physical resemblance, and really don’t care — heck, Morgan Freeman could play Abraham Lincoln and make it work — but Drew’s Barrymore DNA, or something, makes her eminently watchable, and inasmuch as she sowed all her wild oats at a comparatively-tender age, she’s not likely to be a source of embarrassment in the future.

Should someone be insane enough to document my life, I have no one in particular in mind to play me, though it’s not like the subject has never come up before.

(Title sort of explained here.)

    Drew and I do share a resemblance. Well, back when I was in my early twenties, on a good day for me and a bad day for Drew, we could have been mistaken for second cousins once removed. If the sun had already set or the lights were low.

    And someone once suggested a “seasoned” Sean Connery without the accent for you. I second that. It’s Hollywood, after all. Or maybe Chevy Chase, who is starting to look surprisingly Connery-esce. In a comedic sort of way. And without the accent.

    I still like the suggestion of Maury Chaykin from the earlier post. Then again, I have a tremendously soft spot for that short-lived A and E Nero Wolfe series.
