I heard the part of douche #1(A.K.A. Halas) is between nickgbp and jj/66. Good luck jj, nick's stiff competition.

DeNiro To play Lombardi? This should be hilarious. So the famous quote from Lombardi "What the hell`s going on out here?" will be changed to "What the fuck is going on out here"?

Who is gonna play Bart Starr and "The Golden Boy"??

Ed Norton as Starr, Brad Pitt as Hornung.

Tobey Maguire could pull off Bart. I keep asking, who's going to play Jerry Kramer? Will Fuzzy get his own cameo? These are important questions, people!

Better yet...who is mean and nasty enough to play Nitschke???

I am way more concerned about Eric Roth as director. While the man has written some damn fine scripts, he's never directed anything. And directing is a whole different game than screenwriting.

Are you kidding me dusty? I'm working to get Corey and I IN the film! Hopefully we'll see you on set. ;)

dustybricks6's picture

reading the script right now, can't give away too much... the climax of the film is the Ice Bowl, and I think you and Corey could be perfect for Freezing Packer Fan #1 and Freezing Packer Fan #2.

Screw that dusty - I'm going to play Lee Remmel and Corey is going to be Bud Lea. ;)

And, who exactly will play Max McGee?
Will they show all the womanizing, 60's Style?
What about his famous meeting with Curly Lambeau?
Oh hey... what about Jimmy Ringo?
