Everyone knows that thanks to the magic of MySpace, we can all be “friends” with famous people. Even famous dead people. But did you know that you can also buddy up with famous inanimate entities? Neither did I, until my cubicle neighbor Adam Markovitz happened upon the personal site of Love in the Time of Cholera — y’know, this fall’s Oscar-bait film adaptation of the classic novel by Gabriel García Márquez.
Like any prospective friend, I wanted to know a little more about this Love person before signing on. Good thing it filled out that MySpace profile! Turns out Love in the Time of Cholera is a 27-year-old woman living in the U.S. Who knew? And she’s got plenty of cool friends: Her all-important Top Eightincludes Benjamin Bratt and John Leguizamo, who both appear in themovie, and Shakira, who’s working on the soundtrack, as well as regularfolks like “Roxy,” “Johnny Faith,” and “Endless Mike.” (Co-stars JavierBardem and Giovanna Mezzogiorno, meanwhile, are conspicuously absent. Talk about a snub.) Most importantly of all, Love in the Time of Cholera is single, her sign is Capricorn, and she doesn’t want kids. What are you waiting for, magical-realism lovers? Message her now!
Anyway, P-Dubs, are you MySpace friends with any movies or TV shows? And if you are… um, why?
