When your life story is made into a movie, who should they cast as you?

The Kite Runner and A Thousand Splendid Suns by Khaled Hosseini. They're page turners!

My mother. Her life has been a gift to all who have met her.
If you could trade places with anyone, living or from history, for a week, who would you choose?
