I quite like this idea for a thread and don't want to see it sink.

 

I've been thinking about Flair and --- even though this sounds cazy -- I reckon Dustin Hoffman could have done it back in the day.

 

While they look nothing alike, I reckon Hoffman has some facial similarities with Flair:

They both have big noses, and they both have that kinda buck tooth.

 

Dye Hoffman's hair, put him in a robe and have him bulk up a bit and I reckon he could pull off Flair. This would have to be a younger Hoffman though.

 

Aside from my fantasy casting of Hoffman, though, I'm honestly at a loss for who else could play Flair. Very difficult casting.

 

I don't know why, but I like the idea of Guy Pearce as Lex Luger. Luger: The Movie could probably be quite an interesting film -- his college and football days, breaking into wrestling, the Brody match, the dark days, Liz, the rehab, the spinal stroke and remarkable steps to recovery ... Got a lot of stuff for a good film.

How to make that movie so much more awesome just by changing one word in the title- Luger: The Musical.

 

Is he a heel, is he a face?

Here comes Liz with a can of mace

 

Lex: I used to be a narcisist but now I am so proud;

To represent this country and to pander to this crowd

Babyface roster chorus: He bodyslammed the behemoth and handed him a loss

Jim Cornette: But the title won't change hands and it was only a hiptoss

 

Jim Ross: A former football star with a GPA of distinction

Will he be the one to beat the Horsemen to extinction?

Flair: I'd love to put him over just as soon as I can

But it will have to wait because I've signed with Vince McMahon

Lights dim. A single spotlight picks out Luger as he steps upstage.

 

Luger: I will absolutely never join the New World Order

I know I was a Horseman but if you think a little broader

I didn't join the Million Dollar Corporation when accused

Though my reputation, it was slandered, my strength of character, abused

 

Step forward Nash out of the darkness. The music becomes jauntier.

 

Nash: What about the Wolfpac?

Luger: I wouldn't want to disappoint my fans.

Nash: We sure could use that Torture Rack.

Luger: It would spoil WCW's plans.

Nash: You know we'll always have your back.

Luger: I would like the security it'd bring.

Nash: You'd sure look good in red and black.

Dramatic pause, then...

Luger: But what about Sting?

 

 

I'll stop now.

It was mentioned in another thread that I'd love to see Gary Oldman do Vince McMahon, but someone else had the idea of Michael Shannon which I think would be as good a choice. Both would, actually. Michael as the young determined promoter draining territories of talent, and Gary as Mr. McMahon.

Please continue Yo-Yo. Great stuff. As far as wrestlers played by actors. Ving Rhames could totally play Ahmed Johnson. You're going down! With a pair of pliers and a blow torch.

lol at dropping a Noel Edmonds reference here. He never hit the states right?

I don't think our US friends have heard of Crinkly Bottom.
