Meet the Cast of the KC Royals Hollywood Movie

If it wasn’t happening before our eyes, this Kansas City Royals dream season would be impossible to believe. C’mon. The small market, basement-dwelling Royals going against the big, bad San Francisco Giants in the World Series? Sounds like a movie script straight out of Hollywood.

Which got us thinking. This incredible, unlikely underdog story needs to be turned into a big screen flick. Like a Moneyball meets Major League meets Lost in Translation (Welcome back, Sung Woo!) hybrid. And when that day comes, we’ve got the perfect cast ready to roll.

    • I’m thinking Larry The Cable Guy would be a more appropriate Billy Butler.

  1. Roberto Manrique or Eduardo Verásategui would be much better than Damon Wayans, Jr. to play Perez.

  2. Alex Gordon and Matthew Lillard may as well be the same guy. Plus, Lillard has played a ballplayer before in a movie. Other than that, I dig it!

    Post a Reply
    • Matthew Lillard would have to do some major bulking up but I can see it.
      I love Will Sasso for Billy Butler.
      Love Jason Biggs for Shields.
      Need to recast Moose and Hosmer!!!

  3. Good choices. Fassbender could dump the Yankees cap.

      Hopefully he’ll know better by the end of the Series 😉

  4. Oliva Wilde needs to be in the mix.. she was at Royals World Series game in a KC jersey also.. Put her in the role of the “low talking” Fox sports game announcer that acted like they interrupted a moment during game 2.. maybe a love interest of Sun Woo Lee … which could be played by K Pop Star Psy.. Gangum style LOL

      This is our casting wish list. No one that we’ve heard of has announced any kind of movie plans, but we totally think there should be one.

    You guys have some great suggestions. Keep ’em coming! Let’s all hope Hollywood is paying attention!

  6. Alex Gordon should be played by Jim Krasinski they look like twins!

    Post a Reply
    • Or John. He played Jim from The Office.

    • Again, it is pronounced GOR-DON!

  7. Every time they show Alcides Escobar I think it’s Barkhad Abdi from Captain Phillips

      That suggestion has come up a few times. Good one!

  8. Change Amaury Nolasco for Perez, Jonah Hill for Butler, and a young Ken Wantanabe for Aoiki and I think you might be on to something.

  9. This cast is awful, whoever did this sholud be shot. Not to mention the lack of athleticism of the majority of these actors

    Post a Reply
    • Are you suggesting that the Royals should play THEMSELVES? Awesome!!!!!

      Post a Reply
    • mazuma

      The person who wrote this probably has a pretty good case for a raise, to be honest.

      Post a Reply
  10. Y’all forgot Tim Lincecum!!! Wiley Wiggins, who played ‘Mitch Kramer’ in Dazed and Confused, is a perfect casting!

    Post a Reply
  11. This is perfect! Love it lol!

  12. The lead singer of the spin doctors as hunter pence.

  13. Why can’t Mazuma Mike play Alex Gordon? He is an actor, right?

    Post a Reply
    • mazuma

      Mike would probably manage to get hit in the face with a ball hard enough to break his nose before they got done filming the first scene. He’s not exactly Mr. Coordinated.

      Post a Reply
  14. Perez should be played by Coby Bell. He played Jesse in Burn Notice, and I’ve always thought Perez looks like him.

    Post a Reply
    • Perfect. I was searching but couldn’t quite make anyone fit.

      Post a Reply
  15. I think id like Chris ODonnell better for Wade Davis

    Post a Reply
  16. Kit harrington for moose

    Post a Reply
  17. You forgot Robert Redford as Rusty Kuntz.

    • That song is known as the 'Whistling Gypsy', but at the end it's revealed the the Gyps is really a lord. Probably because true gypsy/trvelers don't have kings or anything like that. Although my Grandfather's word was law in the family.

    • The next time I read a blog, Hopefully it won’t disappoint me just as much as this one. I mean, I know it was my choice to read, nonetheless I actually believed you’d have something interesting to say. All I hear is a bunch of whining about something that you could possibly fix if you weren’t too busy seeking attention.

  18. I think Amaury Nalasco looks so much like Hoz, especially when the sun is in Hoz’s eyes. Although Amaury is not quite nearly as tall as Eric. I like the thought of Captain America playing A1.

  19. Who would be Bumgarner? He’s the real villain.

    Post a Reply
    • Madison Bum played by Gru of Despicable Me

      Post a Reply
      • mazuma

        Can’t beat that. Especially if Steve Carrell does the voice.

        Post a Reply
  20. Owen Wilson as Hudler and Vince Vaughan as Lefebvre.

    Post a Reply
  21. While Brian Cranston would be awesome… I think Ned Yost ought to be played by someone a little more mediocre, like Richard Gere… And like Pride of the Yankees, George Brett will play himself and tell Mike Moustakas about one of the times he crapped his pants…

    • mazuma

      I think we would all be sad if there weren’t at least one poop joke somewhere in the movie.

  22. Bumgarner, Morse, and Crawford could play the Hansen brothers in a Slapshot remake.

  23. Cody bell would have to play Perez
