Jamie Vardy: Has plenty to think about

A string of big-name actors have been lined up to play Jamie Vardy in a proposed film about the striker’s rise from non-league football to Premier League record breaker.

Acting siblings Elliott and Luke Tittensor have emerged as the early leading favourite to play the Foxes striker, who on Saturday made history by becoming the first player to score in 11 successive Premier League games when he netted in their 1-1 draw with Manchester United.

Reports on Monday suggested the story of how Vardy, 28, has risen from his struggles as a non-league player to set the record in the top flight would be made into a Hollywood film.

Jamie Vardy the movie: Actors odds

Elliott Tittensor, who was made famous by his role in Shameless and his brother Luke – who was in Emmerdale – have been mentioned as possibles for the role, while Harry Potter star Daniel Radcliffe is available at 33/1.

InBetweeners star James Buckley is quotes at 40/1 by online bookmakers Paddy Power, while EastEnders duo Danny Dyer (66/1) and Adam Woodyatt (100/1) are also quoted.

The speculative among you can get 250/1 on five-times Academy award nominated Leonardo Di Caprio, but there is currently no price on Jamie Vardy to play himself.

    I think Nicholas Bendtner should play him – he has been imitating a striker for years!

    Fair point Benji, funny you should say that though as I was going to suggest really confusing the audience by having him being played by someone like Seamus Coleman, then you could have the Vardy in the film being played by someone like Ighalo, and Jack Grealish when he was younger.

    Then you could really mix things up a bit by swapping the roles of Sam Allardyce and Arsene Wenger and have them playing each other.

    And then you could bamboozle the audience even more with images of Syd celebrating a man city goal, and 999 singing you’ll never walk alone.
