Paul Finebaum says conversations around a potential sitcom about his life are getting very serious, so serious that a well-known Hollywood actor is already on board with playing Paul if the show does indeed come to life. The real Paul Finebaum told the Charlotte Observer he has already spoken with this unnamed actor and, “it was fairly bizarre having a successful Hollywood actor asking me about me,” Finebaum admitted.
He would not, however, reveal the identity of this actor, only saying, “Until we get to the next phase, the producers have strongly encouraged me not to reveal the name.”
This is where KSR comes in. We’re going to find this mystery thespian. OK probably not, but we’ll have some fun guessing on a Tuesday afternoon.
We do know a couple of things: (1) it’s not Matt Damon, because Finebaum said it was Matt Damon, jokingly, then said, “just kidding”; and (2) the actor is “considerably younger,” he said in the interview.
One thing we don’t know but I will go ahead and assume is that this actor will wear silicon ears to recreate Finebaum’s trademark ears. I too have extremely large hearing pieces, which is why I’m comfortable speaking on the issue of big ears, and I think Paul’s ears are important to his character.
Other than that, we have no more details and a lot of people to choose from because Hollywood is a big place with a lot of actors.
Let’s make some guesses:
Bradley Cooper is Pawl, Lady Gaga is Phyllis from Mulga. Cooper/Gaga together again.
I see it. Do you see it? I see it.
Efron was great as Ted Bundy. He has the range.
Depp’s a little older so it’s unlikely he’s the pick.
This is so stupid. What are we really doing here?
We need sports back.
