The Bullpen Gospels: The Movie?

Hayhurst

Loyal Reader John P. pointed us to some breaking news on Twitter regarding a Bullpen Gospels movie.

John suggests Adrian Brody for the lead:

I’m thinking perhaps more like Luke Wilson:

With regular Wilson, in a career-changing role, as the baseball.

Strongly contemplating re-reading the book this weekend to post some ridiculous set of suggested scenes next week, but if anyone wants to help out in the comments, go for it.

Fact: In 100 years, “Cast Away” will be considered the best Tom Hanks movie, by a wide margin.

Allow me to loosen my oft-snug jockstrap of manliness and suggest: His romantic comedies aren’t bad. “Joe and the Volcano” is a particularly special film.

But yes, “Cast Away” is his best. The margin is debatable.

I’m guessing it will take a somewhat lower profile actor for this film and if so, Milo Ventimiglia certainly has the right look.
