In a few weeks, Kinnear will start shooting another sports-related movie in Philadelphia, the Disney film Invincible co-starring Mark Wahlberg. He told us about the movie, in which he'll be playing Coach Dick Vermeil. "In 1976, Dick Vermeil came to the Philadelphia Eagles from UCLA and was not necessarily embraced by the city. He had a tough arrival there, and they really were in dire straights, so he held open try-outs, which really hadn't been done in the NFL before. He ended up bringing on this bartender who had never played football, even at the college level, named Vince Papale, who turned out to be a sensational player. He played with them for six years, went to the Super Bowl with them, and they kind of became friends. It's a rocky story about that guy."


hmmmm any bartenders ever tried out for the Chiefs?

It would be a great movie. An hour and a half of Vermeil trying and failing with the Eagles...then fade to black and we see the words..."almost 20 years later, Vermeil was back in the Super bowl with the St. Louis Rams."

Then cut to "aged" Kinnear as Vermeil and show the Super Bowl's final seconds....it would be awesome and I'd cry!

It would be a better film if they were able to show him winning the SB with a third team.

And here I thought you all were going to say they were releasing a sequel to "The Crying Game".

But at the end you find out that Johnnie Morton is really a chick?

Kinnear seems like a good choice to play a young Vermeil.
