Help us come up with 2017’s 11 Questions

It’s been almost four years since The A.V. Club launched our 11 Questions feature, and in that time, we’ve asked celebrities about everything from giant animals to karaoke, all while probing them about the most inane and intimate details of their lives. Each year, we’ve come up with a different list of questions to ask people, and, because you guys are great, a good deal of the ideas for those questions have come from you, the readers.

We want to do that again. Thus, we’re asking readers to help us come up with some (or all, depending) of 2017’s 11 Questions. Use the comments below to suggest a question that you think we could ask anyone, from Elvira to Harrison Ford. (One comment per question, please, and please don’t try and make us ask anything incredibly insulting.) Upvote the questions you like or would like to see in the feature, and then hopefully the best ones will rise to the top. We’ll pick the ideas we like the most, use them in 11 Questions, and send whoever suggested them some fun A.V. Club swag.


The 11 Questions we’ve asked over the past three years are below, for inspiration.
