"The University of Illinois is also in turmoil. The university sports an Interim Chancellor, an Interim Athletic Director, and an Interim Football Coach; the game will be played at Soldier Field, making this an Illini Interim Home Game."
Who doesnt love Todd Packer?
He's still more Lloyd.
I'd say John O'Hurley (J. Peterman) as Greg Robinson.
I just laughed out loud.
Rich Rod-Eddie Murray
Three and Out - The Star Trek Version
Robert Beltran as Rich Rodriguez
Armin Shimmerman as Bill Martin
Kate Mulgrew as Mary Sue Coleman
Rene Auberjonois as Lloyd Carr
Wil Wheaton as Tate Forcier
Michael Dorn as Denard Robinson
Roger Charles Carmel as Justin Boren
Colm Meaney as GERG
Scott Bakula as Dave Brandon
and William Shatner as Brady Hoke
(note: ...sorry, no picture of Kirk pointing, so I had to settle for "Khan!")
I wouldn't want to see the movie. The book is a very well told reiteration of real life. We all, for better or worse, had to live through that. Even though we have some weaknesses and its not all that realistic, I would love to go 11-1 with a BCS bowl win exclusively for all the tough kids who stayed and fought through all that garbage.
Rich Rodriguez: Kyle Chandler (shucks, who else?)
Lloyd Carr: James Cromwell (in imperious LA Confidential mode) (and I like Lloyd)
Mary Sue Coleman: Sigourney Weaver (same tight lip grimace thing)
Bill Martin: Christopher Lloyd (crazy genius unfortunately crazy at wrong time -- though Kurtwood Smith IS a dead ringer)
Dave Brandon: Ben Affleck (Alec Baldwin is also good -- a guy who can be smug, liked by some, loathed by others)
Michael Rosenberg: Justin Bieber
Samuel L. Jackson could play Ron English.
If Macho Man were still alive, he'd make a good Barwis.
Justin Bieber could play Tate Forcier.
Michael Clarke Duncan would be a better Coach Ron-Ron
as Brian Cook. (Cary Grant is unavailable.)
So I gues we're assuming Chad Kroeger is busy making his glorious music?
/braces for Bolivia
"What's a countable hour!?! You Dolphin puncher!!"
Played by Artie Lange
Played by Meryl Streep!
male viewers, right? Most of the actors are representing male characters . . . still with me? Then Mary Sue Coleman's character clearly needs to be played by someone like:
That's all I got.
Rich Rod - Tommy Lee Jones
Mrs. Rodriguez--Heather Locklear
Brandon - Richard Gere
Hoke - Kevin James
President Coleman- Judi Dench
Bill Martin -- Kurtwood Smith
Rosenberg-- Dustin Diamond
GERG-- John O Hurley
Mattison-- Ed Harris
Borges-- Don Rickles
Denard-- Omar Epps
John U. Bacon-- Matt Damon
Lloyd Carr-- Pat Boone
I'd say Martin Sheen as Greg Mattison. Not for resemblance, for awesome.
Burn Notice Dude- Jeffrey Donovan...
Jim Carey is too obvious...
That is cold blooded.
It was just announced:
Mark Dantonio is being played by Mr. Hankey
Scott Baio (Charles in Charge)
Seems more like a creepy Crispin Glover kind of guy.
Mr. Magoo as tOSU Compliance Guy.
Everyone being played by John Malcovich
Dave Brandon = Tony Soprano
Mary Sue Coleman = Dr. Melfi
Coach Hoke = Bobby Bacala
Bill Martin = Uncle Junior
Justin Boren = Anthony Jr.
Rich Rod = Little Carmine
Tim Tressel = Pasty Parisi
Not casting related, but maybe Josh Groban could do the soundtrack?
