R.A. DICKEY
The projected film’s protagonist. Dickey’s story is a testament to hard work and faith. From a failed prospect with the Rangers to a mediocre journeyman pitcher to an ace with the Mets, Dickey is a screen writer’s dream. He’s personable and quotable, too. The colorful pitcher has been known to walk around the Mets clubhouse in tie-dyed shirts, often wears head bands or wraps and makes Star Wars references whenever possible. Whoever portrays Dickey can’t just portray him as some wide-eyed, lucky guy. This actor has to have depth.
