It looks like ESPN is starting to cater to all the movie geeks out there. I'm not really that into sports, but I like what ESPN is doing! If you recall, the magazine recently gave some NBA players a Marvel superhero makeover.
Their next issue, called Movie Spectacular, hits shelves on November 29th, and it features some pretty awesome images of actual sports stars recreating scenes from some of their favorite movies such as Back to the Future, The Hangover, Caddyshack, Anchorman, Pulp Fiction and Basic Instinct. The photos feature some of the biggest names in sports like Danica Patrick, Chad Ochocinco and Lindsey Vonn.
This issue of ESPN will have articles about about lesser known movie stars like Chelcie Ross who has had roles in Hoosiers, Rudy and Major League. It's got an article that tells a story of trying to pitch a book in Hollywood and even an essay on how geeks have taken over sports movies.
Check out the pictures below and tell us what you think! Here's a rundown of who's in what photo:
The Hangover: Cincinatti Bengals’ Tank Johnson, Dhani Jones and Chad Ochocinco
Caddyshack: Buffalo Sabers Goalie Ryan Miller
Pulp Fiction: Seattle Mariners’ pitchers Garret Olson and Felix Hernandez
Anchorman: driver Danica Patrick
Basic Instinct: Olympic skiier Lindsey Vonn
Back to the Future: Clippers G Baron Davis, Pro Skater Terry Kennedy
