A long discussed biographical movie about Joe Namath’s career in New York may finally get made, with long rumored actor Jake Gyllenhaal to play the legendary hall of fame quarterback.
“It’s been a dream of mone, always, ever since I got into the movies, this Joe Namath film biography,” he told me. I care about this project a lot and I would be truly honored to get the chance to do that. That’s why I keep answering questions about it, even though iit isn’t ready to go yet. It’s important to me. I know I could pull it off. I think his story is incredible. I’m in a hurry to get that one up and going, while I still have better knees than he ended up with.”
I like the fact that Jake G is so eager to play Broadway Joe. Wait…was he in Broke Back Mountain? That’s okay. Gylllenhaal obviously appreciates greatness and it sounds like he is a Jets fan. So we’ll allow it.
