Who’s Jack asks a very important question: Who would play Team GB in a movie about their lives?
It takes a man of powerful acting ability to play a man with such huge thighs. Considering they’re both Scottish, ginger foxes, Ewan McGregor practically IS Chris Hoy… if he were a Hollywood star. We think Ewan could keep up with the rigorous demands of the role too, having done such a good job with his light saber in the Star Wars prequel trilogy.
It’s gonna take some killer abs and looks to pull of Jessica Ennis: the poster girl of the Olympics. Trained dancer Nicole is already in peak condition and has the popularity and charisma to do Ennis justice.
Ok. We know Sarah Michelle Gellar may be currently preggers, and quite a bit older than Rebecca, but we think this blonde fox would put the sex into swimming. Not only that, but any Buffy fan knows just how tough and athletic Gellar is, with her black belt in taekwondo.
It’s probably time Justin Bieber got his first proper movie role, and what better way to challenge himself than to take on playing Tom Daley? Bieb and Tom look kind of similar, loads of girls fancy them, and they were both born in 1994. Is our casting choice Justi-fied?
Gemma Arteton knows how to wear some tight outfits successfully, as she did in 2010′s Tamara Drew. After squeezing into those famous hotpants, she’ll have no trouble donning a leotard.
V Pendz is a little neurotic, but also hard as nails. That’s why we think Andrea Riseborough would be the perfect choice to play this Cycle Queen. Riseborough can do emotional intensity, as shown in Madge’s W.E. and be a tough cookie, too (The Devil’s Whore, Margaret Thatcher: The Long Walk to Finchley).
Before his Olympic victory, old Greg was a relative unknown in the fame stakes. But after his fabulous jumping skills, this hotcake would definitely have a starring role in WJ’s hypothetical Team GB: The Movie. Who better to play him then Rupert Grint; an actor who bears some semblance to Rutherford, and also knows what it’s like to be catapulted into fame at a young age.
Colin Firth can do pretty much anything when it comes to acting, be it stuttering (The King’s Speech), having a different sexuality (A Single Man), or being a bit evil (Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy), and now we think it’s time for him to play a Mod cyclist. We’ll be honest, the best thing Colin’s got to prepare him for the role is the ability to grow killer sideburns. Remember him in the BBC (better) version of ‘Pride and Prejudice‘? He was very good at horseriding in that too… so straddling a bike shouldn’t be too difficult.
