Now that he has the fame, all he needs is a movie deal.
As folks around the world cheer for Steven Slater, the now infamous JetBlue attendant who quit his job in a really spectacular way, we started to wonder who could play him when Hollywood comes knocking.
Because seriously, you know Tinseltown is going to come knocking.
After all, who can resist a story where a beleaguered employee snaps, lets the curses fly, grabs a beer and throws himself down an emergency chute. And show business never met a film set on an airplane that it didn’t like.
In terms of the look, so far we have come up with Paul Bettany (pictured), Simon Woods and maybe Kiefer Sutherland. But if producers want to go a little younger (and hotter) there is always the newly-single Hayden Christensen.
Or they could totally flip the script and cast Angelina Jolie, who could kick some butt before she evacuated the plane.
Who do you think is the ideal actor (or actress) to play Steven Slater?
