Casting...


I was watching a baseball movie last night with my kids and I realized that they really have no criteria for casting players in baseball movies. Tim Robbins as a pitcher in Bull Durham, or Major league where I am SURE several people that had to go through rehab after pretending to have played a game of baseball…
Up your buttJobu

And that got me to thinking about other “sports” movies that had bad casting, Woody from cheers as a basketball phenom? Michael J Fox as a basketball star in Teen Wolf? (ok not a sports movie but still funny!)
We love him as long as he plays good ball!

 And then I realized its not JUST baseball, they do it to football also! Scott Bakula in Necessary Roughness, Keanu Reeves in The Replacements, Daemon Waynes in the last boy scout…
Best part of that movie!
I hope they never make a movie about swimsuit competitions, we would end up with America Ferrera in the lead.
America Ferrera
... Also America Ferrera!


NOT America Ferrera!

  5. I don't watch many sports movies, but inappropriate casting is pretty much a hallmark of Hollywood, regardless of genre.
