The Man With A Long Chin's Diary


Movie Director


30 May 1997 - MOVIE SPECIAL FX

I'm working on a biopic of British wrestling legend Big Daddy, and I've signed Eddie Murphy in the lead role.

Once he's in the padded suit, Murphy is transformed into the fat, charismatic wrestler. He's even got Big Daddy's famous catchphrase - "No respect" - nailed down perfectly. We have a shortlist of actors to play the role of Big Daddy's arch-enemy, Giant Haystacks. The most likely candidate is Harrison Ford, though Leonardo di Caprio has also read for the role.
