Lou Gehrig


Lou Gehrig

There has been many bad (mostly) movies made about Babe Ruth , yet only one starring Gary Cooper , Pride of the Yankees , which was great. Maybe it's time a remake is done. Who would be the actor to play Lou ?

Re: Re: Lou Gehrig

I'd go with Ed Norton. It would definitely be interesting.

Re: Lou Gehrig

Gehrig broke into the majors at 20. Norton is over 50 🤣🤣🤣 maybe he could play his dad.

Re: Re: Lou Gehrig

Gary Cooper was an older looking 41 when he played the role. Go figure.

Re: Lou Gehrig

As much as a movie fan as i am , I cant think for the life of me who would be a great fit to play Lou in a new movie.Plus i havent watched any new movies in about 3 years , all they are is car crashes, gun battles , stupid remakes. yes i know i sound like the old man next door , " Get off my lawn " lol John Cena maybe ? , but i lost all respect for him when he apologized to china.
