Geno is 5-10 at best. He makes Lobo remove her heels to interview him, and she still towers over him. Pacino would have to wear lifts, which he probably does anyway. I think Burt Reynolds is also about 5-7. I saw him up close in person once. The man is really short.
A little input from an Auriema on this topic... Would you cast Matt Damon as Geno Auriemma in a movie? Alysa Auriemma would
I think casting and the title would be the easy task. What would take more work would be writing and directing a film that could get as many of the characters in as possible. This over such a long duration of success along with trying to pare down the quips and quotes that run in the hundreds. All to make a movie that does not last six hours. ..
At first thought I thought this was a little cocky and presumptive. However, I think it is safe to say this will happen and he deserves for it to happen. Truly one of the greatest coaches of all time!!
Tony Sirico (great hair) as Little Luigi in "Il Duce of the Hardwood "
Sharon Stone as CD
Geno's Mom as herself, because no one can play an Italian Nona like a real Italian Nona!!!!
Shea Ralph as Strega Nona. NCAA titles keep coming out of the pot and over take Hartford.
