Jake Gyllenhaal Wants To Play Joe Namath
Jake Gyllenhaal is hoping to score a touchdown with studio bosses and receive the green light to play football legend Joe Namath in a big screen biopic.
The Brokeback Mountain star has revealed he is trying to get a screenplay about the life of the New York Jets icon off the ground - and insists it would be a "dream" to play the sports hero.
He says, "I would love to play Joe Namath. I've been working on it for a long time, trying to develop that story. We got to get it right, got to get the extraordinary story perfect if we're going to do it. But it would be a dream to play him."
But the movie may interfere with the actor's own team loyalties - he has a tattoo of his favorite football team, the Pittsburgh Steelers, on his back.
