Keith Olbermann and Dan Patrick reunite to talk ESPN movie

Ever since 20th Century Fox decided to turn that 745-page ESPN oral history into a movie, everyone has been speculating who will play their favorite quippy on-air personalities like Keith Olbermann and Dan Patrick. Even Keith Olbermann and Dan Patrick. The former SportsCenter tag-team partners reunited last night on Olbermann’s Current TV show and had some fun casting themselves and their former co-workers. It was only semi-serious, with Olbermann using the game as an opportunity to take pot-shots at his perceived former rivals. When Patrick suggested Ryan Gosling for dashing Craig Kilborn, Olbermann replied, “That’s alright, but he’s too talented [to play the role]” and suggested Kilborn’s Daily Show replacement, Jon Stewart, instead. Watch the clips below.

I can’t top Patrick’s suggestion that Larry David play Tony Kornheiser, since Kornheiser plays a version of David every night on Pardon the Interruption. And anyone who’s seen Dodgeball knows that Jason Bateman knows his way around a microphone, so Patrick’s idea that the Horrible Bosses star play him isn’t too farfetched. Steve Carell as Steve Levy? Sinbad as Michael Wilbon? What other casting ideas had promise?

    Someone who is both irrelevant and not funny to play Chris Berman. The possible candidates are endless.

    • Truth

      I’d say you just moved to the top of the list…

    olbermann is pathetic. kilborn is the only espn anchor to go all the way to network late night. something olbermann could never do – he doesn’t have the talent.

    • Jeff

      Kilbourn blows

  • DanOregon

    Steven Weber for Olbermann, Dylan Walsh for Patrick.

  • Alex

    They showed it there; Josh Charles as Keith Olbermann. Of course, if they did that, they would *have* to cast Peter Krause as Dan Patrick.
