OT - Who would you choose in a football movie?

Submitted by canzior on July 17th, 2013 at 12:22 PM

For all the movie fans out there, a little bit of fun on the board today.  I was watching Paparazzi last night and noticed that Cole Hauser looks like a prototypical pocket passer.  So my question to you is: 

If you are casting a football movie (on any level) which actor would you pick for a coach?  qb? any other key positions?

Vince Vaughn as head coach who is a former NFL player turned high school coach, QB would be Zach Galifianakis playing a the son of a drunk, former high school all-america played by Clint Eastwood

Cause once you step on that bus you aint got your mama no more. You got your brothers on the team and you got your daddy. You know who your daddy is, doncha? Gary, if you want to play on this football team, you answer me when I ask you who is your daddy? Who's your daddy, Gary? Who's your daddy?

QB - Scott Bakula as the legendary Paul Blake

Coach - Robert Loggia - "HE PLAYED LIKE A GODDAMN WILDMAN! NO! LIKE A GODDAMN RAMPAGING BEAST! And that's the way you got to do it! YOU GO OUT THERE! YOU TEAR THEIR FUCKING HEADS OFF, AND YOU SHIT DOWN THEIR NECKS!

Let us pray."

Use the cast of "The Expendables."

Crews and Lundgren at OL or DL

Statham at receiver

Li in the slot

Stallone as short-ass option QB

Couture as beefy halfback

Rourke as coach.

Oh, and maybe Liam Hemsworth as waterboy or something.

Kevin Spacey as the coach that the players hate until halfway through the movie he steps up for them in a big way and earns their respect.

would be the Jordan Kovacs story because it would be a hell of a lot better than Rudy. I would have Mark Wahlberg playing kovacs and would choose John Goodman to play Brady Hoke. Patrick Stewart couldplay Mattison (but he'd have to gain a little weight). Jason Alexander could take a stab at Borges (I think they have a similar tempraments as I can see Al having a fit about the pretzels making him THIRSTY). I know in the Jordan Kovacs story Al would oonly play a very small role, but I think Alexander could do it justice. 

For the old staff (who would have to be involved in the story the main guy would have to be Gerg and the only actor I can think of who may be able to do his mane justice is George Clooney. The stuffed animal could be played by the gopher from caddy shack. O.K., I'm outta suggestions now.

Head coach:

 

 

Defensive Coordinator:

Jeffrey DeMunn Picture

Needs to gain some weight but has the look down. HOW DOES HE LOOK IN SHADES?

Offensive coordinator:

Anybody who's ever played Uncle Fester.
