Former Wimbledon striker and renowned football hardman Vinnie Jones could be set to land a part in the upcoming Jamie Vardy movie, according to various reports.
The Independent is among those claiming the 51-year-old is being lined up to play the role of Nigel Pearson in a movie adaptation chronicling Vardy's incredible rise to stardom.
Having started his career with non-league side Stocksbridge Park Steels, the 29-year-old has enjoyed a meteoric climb up the English football pyramid.

Following stints with Halifax Town and Fleetwood, Leicester City shelled out a reported £1 million in 2012 to bring Vardy to the King Power Stadium.
And the striker's rags-to-riches story reached a new - almost Hollywood-esque - level this season, setting a new Premier League record by scoring in 11 consecutive league games for the Foxes.
Currently on course for a shock Premier League title under Claudio Ranieri, Vardy's 21 league strikes have also given the striker a fantastic opportunity of making the cut for Roy Hodgson’s England squad heading to Euro 2016.
That has been enough to convince screenwriter Adrian Butchart to move forward with a Hollywood film charting Vardy's career, with the film producer stating: "We have to wait until after the European Championships in the summer.
"We want his story to play out, but we are going all guns blazing to shoot as soon after that as possible, maybe September, October and November time."
The report continues to claim ex-footballer Jones is a firm favourite to land the role of Pearson having already come out on top in an online poll conducted by the Leicester Mercury.
Whether that will be enough to see the Lock Stock and X Men star land the role remains to be seen.
With Vardy fighting fit and among the goals for club and country, the film's fitting finale may be yet to come.
