Eddie Jones - The Movie

One of the more slightly left-field stories of the week features news that Kiwi actor Temuera Morrison – probably best known for playing Jango Fett in the Star Wars franchise – has been lined up to play the part of Eddie Jones in a movie about Japan’s epic 34-32 victory over South Africa in the 2015 World Cup.

The movie’s working title appears to be “The Brighton Miracle” and at first glance Harrison does have more than a passing resemblance to Jones – so we may not need to suspend disbelief quite so much as when watching Matt Damon play Francois Pienaar in Invictus, or when anticipating Mickey Rourke taking on the role of Gareth Thomas.

And the accent shouldn’t be too much of a stretch either…
