Star power: Who's cast in Rangers movie?


With the news that Hollywood is planning a script on the life of Rangers slugger Josh Hamilton, we took it upon ourselves to put our casting director hats on.

Mind you, the list below is incomplete. We searched A-lists, B-lists and a few other obscure lists to cast principal players of the last few years.

One popular suggestion for the lead role is Cole Hauser, known for roles in "Good Will Hunting," 2 Fast 2 Furious," and the TV series "Chase." But we went with a more familiar name.

We get you started, the rest is up to you (we need Elvis Andrus, after all). Who would you cast in "The Natural II"?

Roll the credits.
