They're Making An Andre The Giant Movie, But Who On Earth Could Play Him

fb share tweet share
While most biopics try to tell larger than life tales, the story of Andre "The Giant" Roussimoff is one that is hard to beat. His stature was only exceeded by his reputation, as both a wrestling legend in the World Wrestling Federation and an actor in such classics as The Princess Bride. Now his story of extreme fame, and his secret pain, is about to be brought onto the big screen – all thanks to his daughter.

Variety broke the news today that Andre's daughter, Robin Christensen-Roussimoff, is helping the biography, Andre the Giant: Closer To Heaven, become a motion picture. Under the guidance of production house Stone Village, which is run by producers Scott Steindorff and Dylan Russell, the 2015 graphic novel detailing the life and times of the man more simply known as "Andre the Giant" is on a bit of a fast track to production. Which leaves a burning question hanging in the air: who's going to play the man, the myth, the legend himself?

While there's no official casting mentioned in the item announcing the film's production, one man comes to mind when it comes to playing the role of Andre the Giant. Robert Maillet.

NFL's Vikings draft German wide receiver Boehringer

Los Angeles (AFP) - The Minnesota Vikings made German wide receiver Moritz Boehringer the first European drafted directly to the NFL on Saturday, taking him in the sixth round.
Boehringer got interested in the gridiron game five years ago at the age of 17 -- when he saw a video of Vikings running back Adrian Peterson.
Peterson's team took him with the 180th selection overall in the 2016 draft that began on Thursday.
"I can't describe how I feel right now, just happy to be drafted," said Boehringer, who played four years in a German league but unlike the other Europeans who have made it to the NFL has never played in North America.
Germany's Bjoern Werner, for example, was drafted in the first round in 2013 by the Indianapolis Colts after playing collegiate football at Florida State University.
"I follow the Vikings, just because (Peterson) brought me to football," Boehringer told an NFL Network television interviewer minutes before he got the call from the team -- who were urged on by NFL Network commentator Mike Mayock.

Woods books accommodation for Memorial, say sources

Tiger Woods watches his shot after teeing off on the 2nd hole in the final round of the Quicken Loans National golf tournament in Gainesville, Virginia Tiger Woods has made accommodation plans for the Memorial tournament in Ohio, sources have told Reuters, suggesting the Jack Nicklaus-hosted event could mark the former world number one's PGA Tour return from back surgery. Although Woods has made no commitment to the Memorial, and his plans remain fluid as he rehabilitates his body, it makes sense that he would want to compete in at least one tournament before the year's second major, the U.S. Open. The Memorial tournament, to be played from June 2-5 on the Muirfield Village course in Dublin, a suburb of state capital Columbus, is held two weeks

Donna Edwards Blasts The Media And Democrats

WASHINGTON — If you ask Rep. Donna Edwards, the polls and the newspapers — and even, on some level, people in the Democratic Party — have it wrong.
Days before the Maryland Democratic primary, in which the congresswoman hopes to defeat her colleague in the de facto race to replace retiring Sen. Barbara Mikulski, Edwards told BuzzFeed News that it’s misleading to poll this close to election day, sharply critiqued recent Politico and Washington Post pieces about her candidacy — and said that the suggestion within her own party that she is unqualified is racially coded.
Edwards’ race against Rep. Chris Van Hollen was always considered a challenge, but she has proved far more competitive than expected, keeping even with him in many polls. On Thursday, however, a Monmouth poll in the state put Edwards down double digits to Van Hollen.
She’s not worried about the poll, she said, casting it as misleading.
