If somebody made a movie about the Reds, who would play what parts?

Let's see if we can come up with most of the team.

Adam Dunn: Will Ferrell
Austin Kearns: Victor Garber (Kearnsy is a dead ringer when his ears are covered.
Ryan Freel: Verne Troyer

Who's got input?

    Starring as Javier Valentin:

  2. Red Hot Mama says:

    Playing the role of Bronson Arroyo:

    I was going to say Officer Tackleberry (David Graf) for David Weathers, but he passed away 5 years ago:

    So, we’ll have to go with Biff Tannen (Thomas F. Wilson):

    Bronson Arroyo, played by:


    Chad Michael Murray (with a wig or some sort of piece).

  5. DevilsAdvocate says:

    By the way, I found it interesting that the Chad Murray photo I found comes from his appearance at the launch event for a Paris Hilton perfume.

    Todd Coffey, played by:

    Oh, Will Ferrell is great for Dunn!

    Too bad Lou Diamond Phillips is so old – I think he’d make a great Felipe.

    Kevin Costner could play David Weathers – old and awful at his job (even if he did play in three of the greatest baseball movies ever. Even Weathers has had good days.) Minus the looks, of course.

    Phillip Seymour Hoffman rocks, but I don’t think he’s a Coffey. He’s more like a Narron.

  7. DevilsAdvocate says:

    I thought Hoffman would bring some gravity and sould-searching angst to the role of Coffey: “O Fate, why hast thou made the sole reliable reliever me?” And he looks a little like him too.

    Narron: R. Lee Ermey? Or is that too much?

    Just so it can be picture, Adam Dunn, played by:


    Will Ferrell. Not the most graceful guy, very funny, and a giant amongst his peers.
