Casting Complete for 1990 Reds Movie

A prequel already? Spurred forward by positive early test audiences and modest advances from several hard-to-pronounce countries, our 2013 Reds World Series feature film is already a success before we're released it. So next month we will begin principal photography on a feature film that will follow the 1990 Reds from spring training through their World Series victory parade. While very true to life, the movie will also celebrate the mirth of the squad as it takes several turns toward musical romp. Release date is expected to coincide with the 2015 All-Star game.

Casting choices have been made solely by me, and are thereby final and perfect. I have chosen a mixture of actors who resemble the players closely, balanced with good and/or funny actors and choices that made me smile. I also threw in some beefcake for the ladies and gents that are into that.
