Who would you choose for:
Murray- Andrew Garfield from The Amazing Spiderman
has anybody seen wimbledon the movie how is it
Federer: Noah Wyle / Ashton Kutcher
Nadal: Antonio Banderas / George Clooney
Djokovic: The guy that played Screech in Saved by the Bell
Murray: As already said, Andrew Garfield (dead ringer).
Sampras: Adam Carolla
Lendl: Jim Caviezel
Borg: Patrick Swayze / Vigo Mortensen
Connors: I honestly have no idea
McEnroe: Bill Murray
Federer- Leo DiCaprio ( I honestly think he could pull it off) or maybe even Bradley Cooper
Nadal- a fit Javier Bardem.
Djokovic- Aziz Ansari for the LOLz
Murray- Andrew Garfield
Gulbis- Michael Shannon
Fred Perry- Benedict Cumberbatch
I was watching a celebrity roast and some guy told Adam Carolla "have some dignity and stick to radio. You look like Pete Sampras with down syndrome"
In an ideal world, Patrick Swayze would make the perfect Federer. R.I.P.
Is that the one with Kirsten Dunst? If so, it sucked. Didn't have anything to do with tennis really. Just a romance movie about a journeyman only being able to play well if Kirsten Dunst is watching, while Kirsten Dunst is a top player who reacts the opposite way and starts losing because she's distracted by her relationship with the guy.
It was such shiate. Saw it on an airplane and it completely ruined my flight.
LMFAO. Yeah, I saw that too. It was the great Greg Giraldo, who passed away from prescription meds / alcohol overdose 3 years ago. RIP, he was the best roaster ever. If you have a chance search for Greg Giraldo Roast on youtube, there are a lot of videos. One of the best is from the roast to Flavor Flav.
They must sell that in a 2 DVD pack with Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants near the tampon section at the supermarket.
Federer - Jared Padalecki
Nadal - Jeffrey Dean Morgan
Djokovic - Adrien Brody
Murray - yes, Andy Garfield
Sampras - George Clooney
Lendl - Willem Dafoe
Borg - Federer can play him. Leo diCaprio
Connors - Liam Neeson (too tall though)
McEnroe - Owen Wilson, haha! ''you can not be serious!''
Oh snap it was Greg. Wow. :shock: That roast was so long ago I had forgotten, but yeah I watched a lot of Greg's stuff. Greg was also great at stand-up. Was very sad about hearing about his death. I think his career was finally taking off for good.
Yeah, I was a big fan too. Sad to see him go at such an early age. I used to watch him all the time on Tough Crowd with Colin Quinn in Comedy Central, with Jim Norton (another hilarious guy), Patrice O'Neal (also RIP) and others.
There is a legendary episode where Greg calls out Dennis Leary on something stupid he said, and then Dennis starts acting like a tool and attempts to make fun of Greg but it backfires and Greg ends up pwning him to the delight of the audience. Look it up, it's on YouTube.
Dennis Leary: A peaceful way to handle a conflict with a country(North Korea) that hates us and has weapons pointed at us? I don't think so
GG: You're right. Like Russia. That huge Russian war for example.
You know if Leary had just smiled at that and played cool like a good sport, he wouldn't be hated by everyone. Pretty petty stuff for a comedian to be honest. Most of them can handle the heat.
Yes, that one! That great Russian war. :lol:
This one's obvious.
Right on the money! Ka-ching!
Del Potro- Javier Bardem/BJ Novak
Federer- Mark Ruffalo
Murray- James Marsden
Nadal- Taylor Lautner/Josh Hartnet
Djokovic- Joseph Gordon Levitt? (Hard one)
McEnroe- Jesse Eisenberg
Sampras- Adrian Grenier
Agassi- Colin Farrell
Lendl- Bill Murray
Borg- Alexander Skarsgard
Safin- James Franco
Roddick- Sean William Scott
These ones are great
This I don't understand
Nadal - this young actor from the movie 'Viva Cuba' who bears an uncanny resemblance to Nadal.
Why dont we ask em?
Taylor Lautner will be more convincing playing Somdev Devvarman and Will Ferrell may be a better choice for Sampras
becomes Tomas Berdych as an adult.
Federer: Keanu Reeves
Nadal: Russell Crowe
Djokovic: Jason Statham
Mark Ruffalo for Federer is understandable, Mark looks like he could cry at any moment.
I would choose Tom Cruise for Federer though - arrogant, self righteous & smug.
LMAO. Spot on.
Jimmy Connors is Jimmy Connors in Jimmy Connors - The World in Five.
Federer = Morgan Freeman
Troicki = Robert Downey Jnr
Nadal = Penelope Cruz
Lol, that's perfect!
'Jimmys World'..the new motion picture released by 20th century Connors.
starring jimmy Connors as jimmy Connors who also features as special guest star jimmy Connors playing himself (jimmy Connors). :neutral:
Borat would only have to shave his moustache off to be an exact replica of Djokovic
Actually, Djokovic could also be played by either Robert DeNiro or Sean Penn, as both can have a smug cocky quality. Djokovic's dad actually resembles DeNiro physically quite a bit.
It's true Stiffler is an exact teplica of Roddick. His character also fits Roddick's persona of rowdy college frat boy.
Clint Eastwood could play Lendl. Both of them have stoic expressions.
Best one yet. Add the stiffler/roddick picture and your 5/5!!!!!!!!!
Federer - Noah Wyle, maybe Robert Pattinson or even James Franco
Nadal - Taylor Lautner, or maybe Gael Garcia Bernal if you want acting chops
Djokovic - Screech or Joseph Gordon Levitt for acting chops
Murray - Andrew Garfield
Sampras - Young: Adrian Grenier, current: an in-shape Jon Favreau (not gonna happen)
Lendl - Current: Christopher Walken or Liam Neeson, not sure about the young version
Borg - Young: Skarsgard or Viggo Mortensen, Current: A cleaned-up Nick Nolte or Dolph Lundgren
Connors - young:Nick Swardson (with the hair from Bucky Larson), Current: Michael J Fox.
McEnroe - young: Jesse Eisenberg, current: Bill Murray
Nadal - Jared Padalecki.
Federer - Keanu Reeves.
Federer- Sunny Deol
Ferrer can be animated by Pixar (Shrek's Prince Charming).
Dude ... if you didn't already know, Sunny Deol is the finest actor that India ever produced.
Mark Wahlberg for Nadal and take a movie like "Invincible"
That Sunny Deol guy scratched my tablet screen with his shoulder hairs. And, ironically, the screen is made of Gorilla Glass. :lol:
Doom ... ROFL X 10,000! But let me tell you, he's the choice of a majority of 1 billion Indian people. So many of them can't be wrong, can they?
Also, Indian women are crazy about Sunny Deol's hair
Why not, OD?
Aren't most of these actors too old, assuming that the movie would cover a lot of the players' competitive years?
Separate names with a comma.
