So WSI member VIVAMEDIASB'S started a thread about "Greatest Sports Actors" and I really couldn't think of any, however that got me thinking about something else.....

Suppose they were to make a White Sox movie. The story of the 2005 White Sox. Of course there is 8 MEN OUT about the Sox, but that's more about the scandal then the actual team.

But anyway, let's say they make a movie about the 2005 White Sox that is a story of everything that happened both on the field and off. It wouldn't be just a documentary like the SOX PRIDE dvd, but a movie about what the whole team went through, like an actual Hollywood movie with actors playing everyone on the team, someone playing Ozzie, someone playing Kenny, someone playing the mayor, and so on like that.

I was wondering what some of your suggestions would be, who should play who?? I think this could be a cool thread. I haven't given it that much thought but here are a few suggestions....


Ozzie Guillen=Al Pacino

Kenny Williams= Kayne West or Chris Tucker

AJ= the guitar player from Staind (I know he is not an actor, but they look VERY similar)!

Jon Garland= Colin Farrel

Lisa Dergan= Lisa Dergan

Cotts= Adam Brody

JR= Jerry Stiller

Crede= Jack Osbourne

Ozzie Guillen Jr.= Wilmer Valderrama

Iguchi= Jet Lee or Jackie Chan

Uribe= Tracy Morgan

Rowand= Jude Law

Dye= Lawrence Fishborne

Viz= that actor who played Urkel! Lol! Its the ears!

Jenks= Bubba Sparx

Konerko= Russel Crow

Polite= Kevin Costner

Moronotti=Horatio Sans from SNL (although that is an insult to Horatio).

Hawk= Steve Martin

DJ= Usher


And so on like that! I know it's a silly idea but it should be cool to see who everyone comes up with. I know that there are better actors that match up better with the people I have mentioned, but like I said, I did this on the fly, didn't really "analyze" it so much.

So who do you guys think??? I know it's just a fantasy but this could be an awesome movie! :D: Let's hear it!

Crede = Matt Damon
Harris = Wesley Snipes
Geoff Blum = Gary Busey's kid (Jake?)
Frank Thomas = Michael Clarke Duncan (who narrated our WS video)

WOW! I can't believe I forgot that one! I think he looks EXACTLY like him. And SANTODORF, good call on Blum as Busey's kid. I remember seeing him in Starship Troopers and now that I think of it, he would be a PERFECT fit!

Nicely done!

Your "nitpicking" made me realize that I made the title of this thread say "MOVE" instead of "MOVIE", my fault, I would change it but I don't know how to edit titles.

Damn your nitpicking!!!

HAHA! Your SOOOO wrong! Don't you remember Waterworld??!? That movie cleaned up mad style at the box office! I know a guy who saw it once.

But like I said in the thread starter, just tossing out ideas, I'm sure there are much better ones then I mentioned, and that's kinda why I want to see what people come up with. Like the person who posted about that guy from Smallville or whatever looking like Cotts, that was pretty dead on!

Hopefully by the time this thread gets tired and annoying we will have the full cast!

I must say that most of the names thrown around in this thread are HORRIBLE for these roles. Ray Liotta as Konerko? Jack Osbourne as Crede? Snoop Dogg as KW? You've got to be ****ing kidding me.
However, John Leguizamo as Ozzie is dead on.

Well, add to the list instead of poo-pooin in my cocoa puffs.

BTW, Ray Liotta would make a BADASS Konerko and I shouldn't have to explain Snoop as KW....

I do agree, i wanted to comment, one role for pacino makes him the best figure to be a latino person? This is more a "yeah i wanna put who is cool now and would make the sox hip" type thing. Im surprised i aint seen kanye as some sort of sox role yet for this now becoming stupid concept.

How bout the guy who does the voice of prof. frink in simpsons do willie harris since they do sound similar, or hell, make willie CGI and have the guy who does frink do willies voice, it will only be a few moments anyhow

edit-sigh i see already the first post said kanye for kenny williams....whatever....why not make dave chapelle as ozzie since we're throwin out who's cool now and is humerous

Well, Snoop looks nothing like KW, sounds nothing like KW, and would probably be too stoned to remember his lines. Why not just go with Flava Flave?
Ray Liotta doesn't even resemble Konerko the slightest bit. He can act, but he is still not a good choice. The actors don't have to be dead ringers for the players, but they should at least have the same hair and eye color, similar heights and facial features.

Roman makes good points...i mean hell if u wanna just put people u like into roles because u like em and have no bearing on looks or true aesthetic appeal, then i want tom cruise as ken williams, cuz of his dynamite role of jerry mcguire, he would fit the ideal role of kenny makin his trade

and i say trey parker should be ozzie cuz he can make funny voices

Ok, nevermind the Snoop thing...joke was lost. BUT, put a freakin goatee on Liotta, give him some lines, and it could work. Think OUTSIDE the box.......Although, I think Russell Crowe (previously mentioned) is a better option....

Russell Crowe, maybe. He wouldn't look like Konerko, but he could pass with a dye job. I am pretty sure Liotta couldn't grow a goatee. Even if he could, he would still look nothing like Paulie.

No, I just mean he has a baby face and doesn't look like he is capable of growing facial hair.

I finally thought of one, Ryan Reynolds as Garland.

Put a goatee on tom selleck and some lbs, he can be be a 1st base homerun hitter again. This time he'd be takin away from big hurts' play time and nike comercials

Tom Selleck was born to play one role in this movie-

Jose Valentin.


And I thought your cast was funny, Captainballz.:thumbsup:

Eric Bana would be a pretty sweet Konerko.

Politte should be played by 'Sloth' from the Goonies.


Even though I believe that actor has been dead for over a decade.
