Recasting 2013 Blockbusters With Athletes


Iron Man 3, The Hangover Part III, Fast & Furious 6, Pain & Gain–our movies-to-watch list is getting longer, summer must be on its way. And while we’re always psyched to see the latest action-packed hits, we’ve started to notice movies repeating themselves a little. Same actors. Same plots. Sequels. There’s nothing wrong with the formula, but it might be getting a little old.

Our partners at Bleacher Report have found a creative fix for this problem (although, only for our imaginations). They came up with a list of 16 super star athletes that could replace prominent actors and actresses in the movies coming out this summer. Lindsey Vonn, you’re now starring at Pepper Pots in Iron Man 3. Dwight Howard, you’ve been upgraded to Superman.
