The movie producer was planning his next blockbuster – an action docudrama about famous composers. So he set up a meeting with Jean-Claude Van Damme, Sylvester Stallone and Arnold Schwarzenegger and offered them the chance to select which famous musicians they’d portray.
“Chopin has always been my favorite,” said Van Damme. “That’s the part for me.”
“I’ve always admired Mozart,” Stallone said. “I’d love to play him.”
The producer turned to Schwarzenegger. “And you, Arnold? Who do you want to be?”
There was a long silence, then he replied, “I’ll be Bach.”
