We all know and love Birmingham Mayor Randall Woodfin. What if they made a movie about him?
We asked our followers on Facebook who their top picks were to play the Mayor:
With almost 200 comments, we had a LOT of actors to choose from.
Curious about who they picked? Keep reading to find out!
9. Damon Wayans
Let’s start of with Damon Wayans! We saw a good handful of folks picking Damon as their go-to to play Mayor Woodfin.
You may know him from some hilarious shows and movies like Major Payne, In Living Color, or even New Girl.
If this hypothetical movie about the Mayor was a comedy, he would totally rock this role.
8. Chris Rock
Next on the list, another comedian, Chris Rock.
Facebook must think Mayor Woodfin is a funny guy… he is!
You probably know Chris Rock from his roles in Grown Ups or Madagascar (he voices the zebra, Marty).
7. Kevin Hart
Okay… so we are seeing a trend of comedians so far.
Kevin Hart is up next! While he is a few inches shorter than Mayor Woodfin, he could totally step up to the role.
He is most known for his roles in Jumanji or Central Intelligence.
His Central Intelligence co-star, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, was casted as an option for our Vulcan so this is pretty fitting.
6. Samuel L. Jackson
Alright, now that we are done with the comedians, let’s see who would take this more “documentary-style.”
For this version of the hypothetical movie, our followers chose Samuel L. Jackson. You may know him from his famous roles in Pulp Fiction, Snakes on a Plane, or maybe you recognize his voice from The Incredibles.
He would definitely be able to play the more influential and serious side of Mayor Woodfin. I would totally watch this movie!
5. Michael B. Jordan
Another great actor to play our beloved Mayor!
Michael B. Jordan’s most popular roles have been from Creed and Black Panther.
Personally, our readers and I think he would play Mayor Woodfin so well. I think he’s got a great balance of stoicism and personality to play such a great guy.
4. Jamie Foxx
While Jamie Foxx is a good 10 years older than Mayor Woodfin, I think he would also fill the role well!
You may know him from Annie (the new one) or Baby Driver.
He’s a great actor, so I think he’d definitely be able to play Mayor Woodfin.
3. Idris Elba
Next on the casting list we’ve got Idris Elba!
Honestly, I would love to see Mayor Woodfin played by Idris Elba, but WITH the British accent. I think that would be fun…
His most known works are from the series Luther or the Thor movies.
This guy definitely knows how to play a role of someone with authority, so i’d definitely give this movie a watch.
2. Sterling K. Brown
Okay, okay….big yes from me and our followers!
As our readers 2nd most popular suggestion, Sterling K. Brown would be SUCH a great actor to cast to play Mayor Woodfin in this fake movie.
You may know him from This Is Us or Black Panther.
Personally, I think he would be my top casting pick.
Coming in at the #1 most commented casting choice…. Mayor Randall Woodfin HIMSELF!
A lot of our followers say that it would only be right for him to play himself, no one could do it better. I would have to agree.
While I don’t know much about Mayor Woodfin’s acting skills, I would love to watch a movie that he stars in!
