Football fever is soon to grip the World, in fact the World Cup starts on the 11th June in South Africa. Now I do not profess to know to much about football but I do know Kevin's Filmography and have decided to watch some of Kevin ~ Football related movie's during the World cup....
Actually I was quite surprised at the number of movie's Kevin has acted in that has had him either playing or coaching football. Kevin has mentioned several time in interviews that he was not very sporty in his youth and actually played Rugby at school.
First off is Trainspotting the opening Credits: (clip above ~ view with caution, language )
On a floodlit five-a-side pitch, Renton and his friends are taking on another team at football.
The opposition all wear an identical strip (Arsenal) whereas Renton and his friends wear an odd assortment of gear.
Three girls -- Lizzy, Gail, and Allison and Baby -- stand by the side watching.
The boys are outclassed by the team with the strip, but play much dirtier.
As each performs a characteristic bit of play, the play freezes and their name is visible:
Sick Boy commits a sneaky foul and and indignantly denies it.
Begbie commits an obvious foul and makes no effort to deny it.
Spud, in goal, lets the ball in between his legs.
Tommy kicks the ball as hard as he can.
Renton's litany continues over the actionScript
Second up was "Small Faces" ~ Kevin's character "Malky Johnson" is playing football when he has his first encounter with the main character Lex
Third we find Kevin's Character "Frankie Mac" in "16 years of Alcohol" coaching a team of boys playing football
Fourth and most recently on Grey's Anatomy Season 6 we have "Owen", "Teddy" and "Dan" playing an impromptu game of football during a break in Iraq in the Episode "6x18 "Suicide is Painless"
Of course last but not least there is the short movie "Does God Play Football" (see clip below)
Mike De Bruca who played Tommy left this message on our You Tube account
ha thanks to everyone who liked it... i played Tommy... Kevin was a total Legend to work with :]
According to Wiki: Association football, more commonly known as football or soccer, is a team sport played between two teams of eleven players using a spherical ball. It is the most popular sport in the world.
Most Popular well then I'm guessing quite a few of Kevin's fans might just be settling down to watch the World Cup, enjoy and best of luck to the team you support
