Joe Flacco To Pretend He Is An Iconic Baltimore Quarterback

Johnny Unitas's son, Joe Unitas, is making a movie about his dad and Joe Flacco will appear as the famous Colts quarterback in the film's final scenes, depicting game action.

It's a perfect casting, really. Both men are famous for leading Baltimore teams ("'Obviously, the Baltimore ties are very important to me,' Unitas said in a phone interview from his Las Vegas home.") and both are boring as all hell. The movie, called Unitas We Stand (face), was adapted from a book with a downright Flacconian name.


It was adapted from the best-selling Tom Callahan book: "Johnny U: The Life and Times of Johnny Unitas."

This makes us wonder: who will play Joe Flacco in the movie about Joe Flacco? Which book will they adapt the screenplay from: Joe F: The Joe Flacco Story, Joe Flacco: He Was A Person or Un-Flaccoable: We Wrote A Book About Joe Flacco?

In a statement on the film's website, Joe Flacco said "I'm excited and honored by the opportunity to play Johnny Unitas."
