John Travolta says he could portray Vince Lombardi

Dan Lauria did such a great job depicting Packers coach Vince Lombardi on Broadway that now we have trouble imagining anyone else playing the legendary coach.

(Especially the guy that may play Lombardi next.)

"I'm also considering doing a US film about the football coach Vince Lombardi, who coached my dad (Salvatore Travolta) before he went professional. I would play Vince Lombardi," John Travolta said at the Zurich Film Festival this week via ScreenDaily.com.

This just feels wrong. Very, very wrong.

We could write more on the subject, but it would just be a variation of the message above. Thankfully, nothing is close to official yet on Travolta closing this deal. It's not even on IMDB.

We humbly suggest Travolta instead focus on Face/Off 2: Still Facing/Off.
