Eddie "The Eagle" Biopic

Though English ski jumper Eddie "The Eagle" Edwards finished dead last at the 1988 Winter Olympics (in Calgary), his trademark flailing arms and coke-bottle spectacles quickly made him a media darling and inspired a biopic based on his life. With the film in the early stages of production, Edwards -- called a "Mr. Magoo look-alike" by at least one critic -- was asked to comment on rumors that Ewan McGregor had been cast in the title role. "Not handsome enough," Edwards replied. "It would have to be Brad Pitt."
