Charles Barkley

Who wouldn't want Siri with storytelling abilities? For anyone who has watched Sir Charles on TNT, you know a simple question often turns into a long story about a crazy exploit. After years at Apple, we're sure Siri has some tales.

Jon Stewart

Who wouldn't want to ask Siri a simple question on current events and receive five minutes of acerbic hilarious wit for your answer? It would make asking Siri, "What happened in Kabul today?" an evening's entertainment.

Coach Taylor

Isn't the answer to everything "Clear eyes, full hearts, can't lose?"

Warren Buffett

User: Siri, can you tell me where to find oranges? Warren Buffet Siri: I would advise against investing in oranges right now. You can find apples at these markets.

Ryan Gosling

You: Siri.
Siri: Hey girl.

Judi Dench

Adding instant gravitas to even your dumbest questions.

Judge Judy Sheindlin

Ever need to resolve a quick dispute between friends? Siri could be incredibly useful with Judge Judy as her inspiration.

Giving Siri A Personality: A Possible Job Listing Has Us Thinking

Who would you want to talk to in your iPhone?

According to a report on 9 to 5 Mac, Apple is (possibly) looking for a special someone to help them "evolve and enrich Siri." The person, according to the job listing (which is no longer viewable online), must be "a uniquely creative individual to help us evolve and enrich Siri, our virtual personal assistant" to "help the Siri team evolve Siri as a distinct, recognizable character."

Since her introduction, there have been a variety of characters imposed onto Siri: the snippy one, the funny one, the charming one, the affectionate one, the fake girlfriend one, the constantly confused one, and the one who got in trouble with a lot of pro-choice groups for not being able to tell you where the nearest abortion clinic was.

So with Siri (possibly) taking on her own personality a little more, there's a lot of options on who she should aim to be like. Though this whole job post may be a hoax (we have some major questions), we've nominated a list of celebrities we think could be a great inspiration for our favorite pocket assistant, just for kicks.

Tell us your favorite...and who we should add!
