How about Heath Ledger? That's hitting both birds with one stone!

Oh, too soon, CoyoteLongshot, too soon.

Actually, I'd like to meet Maynard James Keenan, the lead singer of Tool. I bet that guy has got some interesting stories to tell, looking at a lot of his lyrics.

Either him or Leslie Nielsen. Just to be able to say that Leslie Nielsen is my homeboy would be awesome.
I'm on the Hairway to Steven, baby!

Ben Franklin. I think he'd be fun to hang out with.

Maybe Jesus Christ. Less fun, but almost certainly an interesting experience – or maybe not Jesus but the disciples; since they are writers/storytellers, so it would be fun talking to them. Speaking of storytellers, add Homer to that list too. Of course, none of this would be any fun unless I understood the language they were speaking or they could speak English. If not, I'll just stick with Ben.

If we're talking more contemporary, I think Steve Irwin. He was a character, and some of my best friends (and my mentor) in graduate school were herpetologists, so I know we'd have things to talk about.

This is tough, man…

What about Frank Miller?

Nadya- a tale about what happens to SOME of us when we die.

Currently: Nadya is awake and asking more relevant questions.

I want to put Walt Disney and Michael Eisner together in a thunderdome-like cage, and have them duke it out in a no-holds-barred deathmatch.

And after that, I want to go on a picnic with Jim Henson.

Jesus.

Maybe he can explain to me why my life sucks.

putting your own quote into your sig is the post pretentious and pathetic thing anyone could ever do.

I used to say Walt Whitman so I could smack him for being awful. But I think I'll change my answer to Alexander the Great - I bet he'd have some interesting things to say.

Ian Anderson. He isn't dead yet, but I would've liked to have met him when he was younger.

Apart from that, Beethoven.

Charles Dickens

And I'd ask him how “The Mystery of Edwin Drood” was supposed to end

Ahmad Shah Massoud. To shake his hand, if nothing else.

In the perhaps less impressive category - Terry Pratchett. I want to tell him just how awesome he is, and hug him. ‘Cause he’s just that awesome. :)

Don't take this as an insult, but I think it's funny when people think celebrities would be so neat to hang out with. They're just regular ol' people like you and me. If you meet them at conventions and such, they're actually quite boring. Which is why I enjoy meeting them at conventions, because it puts a big shock of reality into me. It tells me, “hey, these people are just like me.”

In my past convention visits, I've seen Keanu Reeves, Angelina Jolie, Jude Law, Halle Berry, Frank Miller, Jessica Alba, Kevin Smith, Jason Mewes, Lucy Lawless, Karl Urban, Ted Raimi, the entire cast of Firefly, most of the cast of Farscape, Hugh Laurie, Calista Flockhart….anyway, they were all pretty damn normal when I saw them. In fact, Angelina Jolie was so shy, you could barely hear her. She clammed up like a little girl and mewed like a kitten in the microphone. It was very strange; she was the opposite of her bold persona on the red carpet. …Keanu was…well, Keanu. lol!

I'd like to meet Paul Lynde. He's my favorite of all dead celebrities. Very, very funny man!

John Bardeen, Walter Brattain, and William Shockley, these 3.

Because they pretty much shaped what is the modern world. I just want to show em how little has changed since their deaths (around late 80s or very early 90s).

I wouldn't really like to meet a dead person, I don't think they could keep up a conversation too well.








Also, I got nothin'.

The guy who made Dungeons and Dragons, Gary Gygax. If not for his invention my teenage life would've been very different (and very boring… almost became a Priest)…

I was going to say Freddy Mercury myself, but you already covered that. You're awesome.

Aw… Freddy, I wish you were back… Queen will never be the same.

Also, like alibaba said, da vinci would be a great choice.

This year, school's full of BS!!!

The ghost of Vincent Price.
Why?
I know I'll always get my thrill in that house on Haunted Hill
I know that life can be a gas locked inside that house of wax

Some people prefer the finer things in life
I'm alright just hanging out with the ghost of Vincent Price

This is probably a pretty typical answer, but I've always thought it would be cool to take George Washington into our own time and show him all the mistakes we've made and the effects they've had on our country, in order to bring him back and have him make sure they never happen.

On the celebrity side of things… I dunno if he can technically be considered a celebrity, but Bill Watterson. He's smart as I dunno what, and in my eyes, the best comic book artist alive.
