Newsday has reported that R.A. Dickey has been approached about making a movie to tell the story of his life.

While Hollywood hasn't called "action" on a single scene yet, we decided to lend a hand to Tinseltown and help cast several of the lead roles. Check out our selections here.

Who else could slot in to play Dickey, David Wright or Terry Collins? What main characters have we left out?

And what could the movie be named? Here's at least one vote for Knuckle Sandwich.
