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