Short version:

A director decides that he’s going to make a movie based on the lives of famous classical composers. Looking for a prospective cast, he asks Sylvester Stallone which composer he would like to play in the movie. Stallone thinks for a moment and says, “I like Mozart. Let me be Mozart.”

The director then turns to Arnold Schwarzenegger and asks him who he’d like to play. Arnold replies, “I’ll be Bach!”
