Choosing who to be stuck in a lift with can be quite tricky. Obviously you want a mix of skills and looks. You want someone who is capable of getting you out, should a rescue not be on the cards. But you also want someone good looking who will be able to keep an interesting conversation going if you are waiting for hours to be rescued. It may also get pretty hot in there and you may need to take off some layers so you want something good to look at!
Now Tom Cruise has all the skill form the Mission Impossible movies, if anyone could get you out of a lift he could. He also has great strength in those arms and so he could lift you out. He is of course, good to look at but the only draw back might be the conversation. Scientology is not my cup of tea but maybe you could steer the conversation to things more interesting. If things got a bit hot, it would certainly be fun watching him take his shirt off.
From all of the action movies he has done, it is obvious that this man would be strong and able to rescue you, although whether he could work out the electronics in the lift, if he needed to would be questionable. He is certainly high in the looks stakes and conversation could be interesting. If he needed to strip off in the heat then not many people would complain.
Now Colin Firth is not so much the strong type that could rescue you, although sweeping a woman off her feet is something he is sure to be good at. It would certainly be fun having to look at him for hours and the conversation would be interesting too from such an intellect. With his action and looks you probably wouldn’t care about him rescuing you as you would want to be stuck in there as long as possible. If he got hot then you might get a see through shirt look from him like he produced in Pride and Prejudice, now that is something worth mulling over!
Now it is possible that George Clooney is getting a bit old to do the superhero rescue bit but he would certainly be interesting to talk to. Also if he just looked at you you would just melt and you would not need to be rescued, unless of course he offered to rescue you. He certainly looks strong though and so it is likely that he could carry you out if he really had to and if you hot injured he might have enough medical knowledge to help.
Richard Dean Anderson
Now Richard Dean Anderson is the obvious choice, although he obviously is not MacGyver, he certainly should have learned something from making so many episodes of that show. If he isn’t carrying a Swiss army knife, gum and duct tape then he will have learnt nothing from it. However, if he has not got them with him, you will still be able to enjoy yourself waiting to be rescued chatting with the good looking man and enjoying looking at him.
