Which actors would play Cardiff City stars in a Hollywood movie?

  • Forget 'Jack to a King', a Bluebirds blockbuster is incoming
  • Starring Anthony Hopkins, Daniel Kaluuya and Jake Gyllenhaal

You’ve heard of ‘A Jack to a King’ (lol) but what about a Bluebirds Hollywood blockbuster? That was an idea floated around by friend of VFTN Mark Carter.

I spoke to Mark about this idea and it got us thinking, could we cast some of our Bluebirds favourites in a Cardiff City Hollywood film? Here’s what we came up with:

Neil Etheridge – Daniel Henney

The Korean-American actor is known for his role in X-Men, but he could be cast as Cardiff’s very own superhero. He’s certainly got the hair and good looks for it.

Lee Peltier – Ricky Whittle

He’s already played a footballer – starring as Ryan Naismith in Dream Team – and Whittle could fit the role of Pelts well. Looks good with a shaved head and could definitely stand his ground.

Sol Bamba – Idris Elba

Who else but the man tipped to be the next James Bond? Bamba is the coolest cat around and Elba would be a fitting casting.

Sean Morrison – Bradley Cooper

Wavy hair, blue eyes and always up for a laugh, it’s got to be Bradley Cooper for the skipper.

Bruno Manga – Nicholas Pinnock

Few can pull off the thick hair and thick beard combo like our smooth Bruno, but Nicholas Pinnock does a good job.

Aron Gunnarsson – Travis Fimmel

First class Viking look achieved.

Harry Arter – Jake Gyllenhaal

Look at that slicked back hair. It remains to be seen whether Gyllenhaal can cover as much grass as our Harry.

Victor Camarasa – Miguel Angel Silvestre

It has to be one of Spain’s hottest active properties right now.

Junior Hoilett – Kofi Siriboe

He may be a bit younger than our Canadian wing wizard, but we think this is the perfect casting.

Nathaniel Mendez-Laing – Alfred Enoch

He’s been in a Harry Potter film and you need a bit of magic to score goals like Mendez-Laing’s beauty against Brighton.

Oumar Niasse – Daniel Kaluuya

All about that smile!

Callum Paterson – Richard Madden

Scottish, talented and rocks a moustache. Not sure how well he can launch a two foot tackle into an empty net though.

Kenneth Zohore – Will Smith

Okay, he may be a bit old for Ken, but if he can roll back the clock he could lead the Cardiff line well.

Josh Murphy – Loyle Carner

Baby-faced Loyle Carner is a rapper, but if he wanted to give acting a shot, he could play Cardiff’s very own baby-faced Josh Murphy.

Bobby Reid – Karl Collins

Okay, we struggled with Bobby Reid so this is a reach, but if Karl Collins grew out some braids, it could work.

Joe Ralls – Jeremy Irvine

Have you every seen Joe Ralls and Jeremy Irvine in the same room? Us neither.

Greg Cunningham – Chris Evans

The Marvel star could pull off cheeky chappy Cunningham.

Neil Warnock – Sir Anthony Hopkins

Great shout by Nicholas Price on Twitter this. Make it happen.

Kevin Blackwell – Alec Baldwin

American Baldwin has probably never heard of our Kevin Blackwell, but there’s something in there that reminds me of Cardiff’s assistant manager.

Ronnie Jepson – Jamie Foreman

The Layer Cake actor is used to playing hardmen, so he’d have no problem filling Jepson’s shoes.

Embed from Getty Images

Joe Bennett – Joe Bennett

He’s so good looking he could be a Hollywood actor.
