Hogan biopic is in the works. Rumored to be directed by Todd Phillips and starring Chris Hemsworth as Hulk Hogan. Although I’m not a fan of Hogan, I hope that the film is honest and resonably historically accurate.
With a presumably decent budget, and creative use of visual effects and of forced perspective and cg, there is a chance of having a pretty great cast.
I imagine that the movie will probably end around the time of his first WWF title win, or maybe after Wrestlemania or Wrestlemania 3.
Here is my wish list of actors I think could really pull off some of the other characters very well.
(I realize a large number of these characters will likely not appear in the movie)
● Roddy Piper - My number one choice is
Jon Daly as Roddy Piper
● Andre The Giant - I think should be
Sacha Baron Cohen
Sacha Baron Cohen as Andre The Giant
(He is an exceptional actor who could pull of any role and great makeup artists could really make it work)
● Jimmy Snuka - Randeep Hooda
Randeep Hooda as Jimmy Snuka
● Mean Gene - Paul Scheer
Paul Scheer for Mean Gene
● Dr. D. David Schultz - Steve Austin
No photo necessary. Perfect casting
● Sylvester Stallone - Nick Kroll
Nick Kroll does a perfect Sylvester Stallone impersonation
● Richard Belzer - Martin Starr
● Brutus Beefcake - Dolph Ziggler
(Maybe he could pull it off?)
● Jesse Ventura - James Adomian
(His impression is beyond perfect)
● Jimmy Hart - Duncan Trussell
Duncan Trussell as Jimmy Hart
(His voice is very close)
● Bobby Heenan - Danny Mcbride
Danny Mcbride for Bobby Heenan
● Captain Lou Albano - Dan Harmon
Dan Harmon as Cpt. Lou
● Sherri Martel- Stephanie Beatriz
Stephanie Beatriz as Sherri Martel
● Linda McMahon - Maria Bamford
Maria Bamford as Linda McMahon
● Cyndi Lauper - Jenny Slate
Jenny Slate would be a fantastic Cyndi Lauper
● Vince McMahon - John Cena
John Cena as Vince McMahon
Who would YOU cast in the film?
Who would be a good Freddie Blassie? Or Nick Bockwinkle? Who would you want to cast as The Iron Sheik (Sacha Baron Cohen again for me) ?
Mr. T? Bob Orton (Michael Cera is my choice lol) or Randy Savage?
