Default Joe Flacco to portray Johnny Unitas in upcoming film

Joe Flacco to portray Johnny Unitas in upcoming film
By Marc Sessler
Around the League Writer
Published: April 6, 2013 at 08:23 p.m.

After pulling off a rather convincing Johnny Unitas impression in Super Bowl XLVII, Baltimore Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco is hoping to do the same on the silver screen.

The Baltimore Sun reported Saturday that Flacco has agreed to play the late Hall of Fame Colts passer in the upcoming film, "Unitas We Stand," according to Joe Unitas, Johnny's son.

"Obviously, the Baltimore ties are very important to me," Joe Unitas told the newspaper. "I think it's great that Joe just won the Super Bowl with the Ravens and was Most Valuable Player in the game. A lot of the way Joe plays and his demeanor reminds me a lot of my dad. He's not a rah-rah guy. He throws a touchdown and maybe there's a little fist pump. ... (Flacco) does things the right way and is a good role model for kids and he gets what hard work is and does everything he can for the team. There are a lot of parallels that can be drawn between Joe and my dad."

This film will never see the light of day. The budget will be completely blown on the CGI to digitally separate Flacco's unibrow into a normal set of eyebrows.

They must have selected Joe due to his exceptional acting chops.

I hear Oscar likes to get really down and dirty.

A dissenting view on Flacco being a good choice to play Johnny U

A grandson of Hall of Fame quarterback Johnny Unitas has added more fuel to a nasty family feud by calling Baltimore Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco an "embarrassing choice" to play his late grandfather in the upcoming film about his life.

Flacco has agreed to play Unitas, the former Baltimore Colts quarterback, in the final scenes of the film, "Unitas We Stand," expected to hit theaters in 2014.

"If you want a real movie, hire a real actor,"
wrote J.C. Unitas on Facebook.

Added the 24-year-old former Villanova quarterback: "My grandfather and his legacy deserves only the best, and this is not it. Has Baltimore forgotten that Trent Dilfer also won a Super Bowl while playing for Baltimore?"

J.C.'s father, John Unitas Jr., calls Flacco a "goofball."

"If you want a quarterback, go with Peyton Manning," John said. "My father was just like that. This is a joke.
"

LOL I can't stop laughing

Turns out, Flacco was not a unanimous choice among a squabbling Unitas family.

According to Robert Klemko of the USA Today, John Unitas, Jr. thinks Flacco is a "goofball" and the role should have gone to a certain former Colts quarterback who also won a Super Bowl and will one day be enshrined in Canton, Ohio.

"If you want a quarterback, go with Peyton Manning," John said. "My father was just like that. This is a joke."

Peyton Manning couldn't even honor Unitas' death in his next game. He asked the NFL if he could wear black shoes, was told no, and didn't wear black shoes or do anything else. Chris Redman (the Ravens' starting QB at the time who was actually close with Unitas) did not say anything to the NFL, wore black shoes during his game, and then paid the fine levied by the NFL.

What I'm trying to say is: fuck the Colts and Peyton Manning.

This is like getting O'Donnell playing Bradshaw in a movie.

Just shameful.
