Not-Bobby

There’s discussion over at Mig’s Daily Dirt about a Bobby Fischer movie and who should star as the man. Tobey Maguire not well received there; Josh Lucas and Ryan Gosling both put forward as better suggestions for looks and/or ability.

More interesting: What would be the WORST choice for playing Bobby? Remember, Bobby was tall, intense, moody, dashing, charming at times, and incipient-crazy.

So, for starters: 

  • Sylvester Stallone
  • Kevin James
  • Leslie David Baker (Stanley Hudson from The Office)
  • Charlene Tilton*  (*I make one Charlene Tilton joke per year because Matt P laughed at the first one.)

Your nominees?

UPDATE: Matt wins, both for ingenuity and for exceptional photo editing skill.

  1. Har! Thanks for that.

    Arnold Schwarzeneger (After Spassky-Fischer, Siegen 1970, “I’ll be baaaack.”)
    Clint Howard
    Brian Dennehey
    Paul Giamatti

  2. Clint Howard can at least act. I’d rather see him than Chuck Norris
    I think a fascinating choice might be Sacha Baron Cohen.

  3. HAHAHA!!! The Clint Howard “My 60 Memorable Games” cover is priceless!
    Sacha Baron Cohen…inspired! Yeah, I think so too.

  4. Egg – Santa with Muscles? Your knowledge of bad movies is truly impressive.

    R&R – Sacha Baron Cohen would certainly make it interesting. For that matter, who likes playing crazy more than Johnny Depp?
