You may already have heard that an ESPN movie is in the works, based on “Those Guys Have All the Fun”, a book by Tom Shales and James Andrew Miller.

It quickly became apparent that there is only one person who can ever be properly cast as Keith Olbermann; particularly a young Keith Olbermann: Ben Affleck.
