James Corden to Play Big Ron?

As Smithy in Gavin & Stacey, James Corden struggled to come to terms with Welsh phrases, but now he's got to get his spotters' badge and learn some Ronglish for a new film part.

According to The Sun James has signed up to play the part of "Big" Ron Atkinson, in a film about the late, great Laurie Cunningham, whom he managed at both West Brom and Man Utd.

We've mocked up James as Atkinson and got us thinking; who would play the other football icons of our time? Brad Pitt as Beckham? Sean Connery as Fergie? Let us know who you'd have in the comments section.
