Winter Classic 2011: The Movie

Posted February 10, 2011

Don’t get too excited, it’s not really happening, but that won’t stop us from having some fun and casting the movie version of The Winter Classic 2011.

Capitals Outsider fished for ideas from our Facebook and Twitter followers yesterday, and got some great ideas for most of the Capitals, including Nicholas Cage as Eric Fehr, Anthony Hopkins as Bruce Boudreau, and Robert De Niro or Alec Baldwin as Ted Leonsis.

There are some great ideas, some hilarious ideas, and several that need filling in, so we need your help.

We’ve put this in a Google Document and it’s open for anyone to edit. Feel free to contribute to casting for The Winter Classic 2011: The Movie. Once we get good and/or hilarious ideas, we’ll publish the final version.

Note that the Penguins cast needs work. Jack McBrayer or Spencer Pratt to play Sidney Crosby? Tough choices.
