Default Who Would You Cast to Play Jay in a Movie?

I was thinking of American movie stars throughout history who have personified what it means to be an American hero in modern history. First, there were the cowboy heros - Gary Cooper, John Wayne - who were upright, honest and true blue. Then you had the reluctant, wise cracking American hero, like Humphrey Bogart who kept saying he didn't give a damn about anything, but saves the day in the end. We also had the moral hero, like Gregory Peck playing Atticus Finch. Then you had the Clint Eastwood type. Stoical. Quiet. All business. No bs. Then, I suppose the modern guy is a mixture - the Bruce Willis type - a lot of jokes, a lot of bull****, but comes through when he's needed. Yippie kay yay, mofo.

I'm thinking Elway would definitely be the John Wayne type. Hell, he even walked like him and got nicknamed, "Duke" just like the original. So which American hero would play Jay in the movies?

John Cusack. Sorta whiney, a little too introspective and easily bruised, but still a decent guy when he figures out how to do the right thing.

Meryl Streep, she can cover the range of fake emotions, and also has the required vajayjay. And let's face it, Meryl's great.

I changed my mind.

I'm going with Philip Rivers.

This is the best one. Although the kid dresses better than Jay.
