FC Barcelona: The Movie (Part 1)
Oh, and wasn’t Alive about a rugby team that crashed in the Andes!? ..but I guess since it was more about cannibal action than actual sports moments, it doesn’t count..
But never mind, my point is: You people in Hollywood can make great sports movies which is why I think a movie should be made about one of the greatest soccer teams ever: FC Barcelona.
And to speed up the process, I have taken it upon myself to help out with the casting. Here is the first part (of 3) wherein I present which actors I think should be cast as the players when FC Barcelona: The Movie becomes a reality.
And yes, I have taken the “lookalike” approach since I believe looking like the person you are about to portray, helps the actor to get into character. ..AND because lookalikes makes it more fun..
I know what you’re thinking: “any semi-bald actor could portray head coach Josep “Pep” Guardiola”! Well, sure. But even if you’d argue for a “Richard Jenkins” or a “Bruce Willis”, no other actor is as semi-bald as Stanley Tucci.
This casting choice took me days to find. I rummaged through the Internet googling phrases like “cute white actors”, “handsome caucasian actors” with no luck before I got creative with my search. I guess this casting choice proves the phrase “Once you go black..” right.
In Spain Gerard Pique is known for being a soccer player. In the rest of the world he is known as “Shakira’s boyfriend”. Paul Walker is the perfect choice to play such a dynamic character.
I don’t want to get ahead of myself, but do I smell an Oscar nomination for Zachary Quinto‘s portrayal of Cesc Fabregas in this movie I just made up? I sure do!
This could possibly be the greatest lookalike picture ever! We have posted this before as a stand-alone lookalike picture, but it’s too good to not use again. I have to give props to Janne the Director for coming up with it. It might be the best thing he’s ever come up with. And he comes up with a lot of good stuff. Yeah, It’s THAT good.
If Jim Henson was still alive, I suspect he would sue Carles Puyol for copyright infringement.
Maybe it’s just me, but with their forehead glare and rosy cheeks, doesn’t Xavi and Josh Radnor always look like they “just had sex”?
Admit it, you would love to see this happen too.
