Did anybody else watch Blind Side for the first time, after already hearing that Glen Davis was a finalist to play Michael Oher?
I really liked the movie, but kept thinking to myself, “That could have been Big Baby,” and doubling over with laughter. I don’t know why it was funny that Big Baby was so close to landing a featured role in a top-notch movie, but I couldn’t stop cracking up.
I guess it was the thought of Big Baby — and all his giganticism — sleeping on a couch, or him walking through the rain with a backpack on his back and a frown on his face. Or him taking one sip of a 40, then snuffing an entire group of people, destroying about ten former neighbors all at the same time. Or Big Baby getting bullied by some trash-talking white kid for half a football game, then deciding to stick up for his coach and piledriving the same kid over a fence. Or maybe it was just the thought of seeing Big Baby in a multi-colored rugby shirt.
Today, I can ask him about how he would have played the role. Actually, I can ask him whatever I want, and so can you, because he’s chatting live on Boston.com at 3:30 p.m. EST, after the C’s practice. Click here to log on, chat with him, and ask him questions.
