Keith Olbermann has some ideas for casting the ESPN movie

Thursday February 19th, 2015

James Andrew Miller, author of the ESPN oral history Those Guys Have All the Fun confirmed on Monday that he's working on a screenplay to turn his book into a movie, which leads to a couple of obvious questions: Who's going to be in it and what will it be called?

ESPN's Keith Olbermann took a stab at casting and titling the movie on his show Wednesday.

Olbermann says to let Jason Biggs play Rich Eisen. Benedict Cumberbatch can play Dan Patrick and Tony Kornheiser can be played by either Larry David or Paul Giamatti.

Some of Olbermann's ideas for a title include "Fifty Shades of Jim Gray," "The Perfect Hannah Storm," "American Kiper" and "Charley Steiner and the Chocolate Factory." You can go wrong with any of them.
