    Sean Astin, of course! He has shown that he can lead his friends through caves to find a pirate treasure, sack the quarterback of the opposing team, and carry his friend up an active volcano to get rid of a pesky Ring. He has defeated terrorists at his prep school, knows the three special steps to do anything, looks awesome in a mesh shirt, can dig up cave men, and is an expert with a pair of sais. What more could you want??

    (The Goonies, Rudy, Lord of the Rings, Toy Soldiers, Special Agent Oso, 50 First Dates, Encino Man, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles)

    IF it had to be someone I know I would choose my son. If it was an actor I would choose Jason Statham.

    Kate Upton. I’d probably die but I’d die happy.

    My Guardian Angel: who has pulled me back from the brink when I’ve nearly been killed many times. A psychic medium told me that he’s my Mother’s first fiancé who was a bomber pilot shot down in World War II.

    Chris Rock. If there’s a possibility of dying, you might as well have a good laugh before going down.
