In fact, Daly’s on the brink of becoming a multimedia mogul. Besides some new endorsements and his soon-to-drop country music album, John is talking about returning to the ranks of published author by writing a follow-up to his best-selling book, My Life In & Out Of The Rough. If the new book sells well, you can expect a feature film to capitalize on the success.
It’s true his career and comeback might make a good flick, but who would be the star? Daly’s thought about who he’d like to see play himself, both pre- and post-weight loss. “I just saw Matt Damon, how he swung a golf club, and I thought if I ever made a movie I want him to be me,” Daly said. “The tough part is who would play me at 290 pounds. Now Kevin James, he’s my bud but he’d be good.”
When you think about it, Damon does have golf-movie experience, but I just can’t see the squeaky-clean star suckin’ down cigarettes & diet soda like Daly does. This Caveman’s no casting agent, but how about someone with a bit more “character” like Billy Bob Thornton?
There’s also one more bit of casting controversy: “Who is going to play all the ex-wives?” asked Daly, half-joking. He’s got four of ’em!
PS: Do YOU have any suggestions for stars to include in John Dalys movie? And how about his fellow golfers – should Tiger, Phil & and the rest play themselves or get an all-star Hollywood makeover? Lemme hear em Rockheads!
