FC Barcelona: The Movie (Part 2)

April 17, 2012

Yesterday I suggested that since Hollywood are great at making awesome sports movies that are based on true events, they should make one about one of the greatest soccer teams ever: FC Barcelona.

To speed up the process and help them out, I have taken it upon myself to do the casting. Here is the second part (of 3) wherein I present which actors I think should be cast as the players when FC Barcelona: The Movie becomes a reality.

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.

Perhaps you remember, I did another Iniesta lookalike picture a couple of years ago, and even if that one was funny I decided to make a different casting pick here, since FC Barcelona: The Movie is a live-action movie and not a cartoon. Karl Pilkington is the only other person I know that is as bald and pale as Andres Iniesta. It’s the perfect pick!the animated comedy series and blog lunki and sika

If you haven’t watched Sons of Anarchy you have no idea who Theo Rossi is. And if you have, it doesn’t matter because you will not be able to recognize him when he portrays Alexis Sanchez in this movie. His hair will be grown back, no visible head tattoos and no Samcro leather vest to help you identify him. He will nonetheless do a great job here, since looking like the person you are playing ensures a great performance!the animated comedy series and blog lunki and sika

I’m not saying that Leo Messi looks like a fat kid (well, kind of actually), but it was either this casting choice where Chunk from The Goonies plays him, or Sam Rockwell with a bad haircut. And when those are the choices, you always go with Chunk.the animated comedy series and blog lunki and sika

Hey, it’s that actor from that movie I saw once, I think.. I’m not really sure, but at least they look alike..the animated comedy series and blog lunki and sika

Fred R. Barnard coined the phrase: “A picture is worth a thousand words”, and I think it has never been more applicable. the animated comedy series and blog lunki and sika

Okay, so this is how I see this play out. I offer Jon Cryer the role of Javier Mascherano. I say it’s because he’s a great actor, but really it’s because Jon Cryer only need to stop shaving for a couple of days to get into character. He accepts, but has to quit Two and a Half Men in order to do it. He does, which ultimately leads to that show being cancelled. Millions of people cheer and parades are happening in cities all over the world. I get knighted by the Queen of England because I made it all happen. the animated comedy series and blog lunki and sika

I think Janne the Director suggested Hillary Swank for this one, but since there isn’t a single picture of her on the Internet where she’s NOT smiling, the second best choice was a serious Dave Chappelle.
