The Replacements (2000)

The Replacements  was based loosly on the 1987 NFL strike replacement teams (scabs) that were composed of some interesting players, some former NFL players, some who were not quite NFL-level and many who were not even close to NFL level talent.

As far as we know there were no NFL athletes in the actions scenes, but readers may have information we don't currently have. does not list a football advisor or coordinator as many films do.

Partial cast:
Keanu Reeves,  Gene Hackman,  Brooke Langton,  Orlando Jones,  Clifford Franklin, Faizon Love, Jamal Jackson, Michael Taliferro,  Ace Yonamine,  Troy Winbush,  David Denman,  Jon Favreau, Michael Jace,  Rhys Ifans
