Episode 8: We Are Marshall

This week we discuss the 2006 film We Are Marshall. This sports movie is based on a true story and stars Matthew McConaughey and has a much more uplifting ending than last weeks film. We arrived at this film through leaping with actor Anthony Mackie. 

Season 1, Episode 8

THE Leap

How did we leap here?

Actor: Anthony Mackie

From: Million Dollar Baby

Chosen by:
Actor (Mike)
Film (Scott)

Anthony Mackie plays someone who enjoys boxing in Million Dollar Baby and we leap with him to We Are Marshall where he plays a talented footballer, in another depressing sports drama.

Where are we leaping to?

Actor: Robert Patrick

To: The Men Who Stare At Goats

Chosen by:
Actor (Glenn)
Film (Mike)

After picking a leaper that could take us to a few classic films, Mike instead chooses to leap to The Men Who Stare at Goats. The uncredited Robert Patrick played the head coach of the football team in We Are Marshall, a few years before appearing in The Men Who Stare At Goats which also stars George Clooney and Ewan McGregor.
