Who would Scott Interrante (of This is the Greatest Song that I've Ever Heard in My Entire Life) cast as Jovie if Elf (2003) was being Recasted in 2022?

Happy Holidays!

Ryan has a degree in Film Studies, and he’s a musician. So, Soundtrack Your Life is the perfect intersection of his two main passions. Plus, he’s an avid music fan—hunting down rare songs from his favorite bands has familiarized him with many obscure soundtracks over the years. It's been so gratifying for him to hear fellow film and music enthusiasts share their stories of why they love soundtracks!
