Bob Melvin = Philip Seymour Hoffman
Yeah, he played Art Howe in the first "Moneyball". So what? Philip Seymour Hoffman may be the greatest actor of our time. You think he can't pull off Howe and Melvin? Like Bob Melvin is so interesting? You're an idiot who knows nothing about cinema.
Yoenis Cespedes = Dennis Haysbert
Dennis Haysbert has played a Cuban baseball refugee who can hit before. Haysbert is 58 and Cespedes is only 26, sure, but he'll seem a lot younger when he's not trying to sell the audience insurance.
Josh Reddick = Zac Efron
They have similar looks, similar builds, similar douchey facial hair and we all have a similar desire to punch them in the face.
Brandon Moss = CGI
Noted baseball turd Brandon Moss suddenly became a hitting machine in mid-June. Some kind of smoke and mirrors or visual tricks or special effects has to be what caused it to happen. It's the only explanation. So why not just have him be created with computers in the movie?
A's pitchers = Inflatable extras
Jarrod Parker? Tommy Milone? A.J. Griffin? Who are these people? Maybe give some funny Brandon McCarthy lines to Zach Galifianakis, but other than that: faceless mannequins.
Bartolo Colon = Sylvester Stallone
Both have grotesque bodies, both have a history with HGH, and both speak English as a second language.
Billy Beane = Kate Upton
Beane, an average looking guy, somehow lucked out and got Brad Pitt to portray him in the first "Moneyball". He should try for one better and request the world's sexiest woman for the sequel. The locker room scene would have a ton of potential.
