Remember ProStars? The Saturday morning cartoon that featured Michael Jordan, Bo Jackson and Wayne Gretzky as crime fighters. Here’s the intro in case you’ve forgotten all about it.

While the show did highlight the athletes in their prime, a lot of time has passed since they graced the cover of a breakfast cereal.

However, it might not be a good idea to get the original athletes to play themselves, as they’re too old and probably uninterested, especially if it’s a live-action film. So here is a look at the ideal cast for a ProStars movie.

Don Cheadle as Michael Jordan

Michael Jordan was the charismatic and brainy leader of the group. He also had some sweet rocket shoes which allowed him to jump to greater heights. Don Cheadle is a very good candidate for the role, not only having experience being a rocket-powered superhero (read: Iron Man 2), but also because he comes across as a real smart dude.

Bradley Cooper as Wayne Gretzky

If Wayne Gretzky were a Ninja Turtle, he’d be Michelangelo. He was the comic relief of the show, and was usually thinking about food. Bradley Cooper has not only proven himself to be quite the funny guy, but he’s also got some action experience, having played Faceman in The A-Team movie. Plus, he kinda resembles a young Gretzky.

Terry Crews as Bo Jackson

Bo Jackson was the muscle-bound bad-ass of the team, having been both a professional football and baseball player. Terry Crews is the best choice to play Bo Jackson, as he’s also a former NFL’er, and is really good a playing tough-as-nails characters.

Bette Midler as Mom

Mom was the Q of the ProStars team, providing the athletes with wacky inventions to assist them on their various missions. In terms of the way she spoke, she was like a female version of Jewish comedian Jackie Mason. So who better to portray the real-life thing than fellow Jewish comedian, actress and singer-songwriter Bette Midler?

Emma Stone as Denise

The young and attractive Denise was Mom’s assistant, and not only was she cute, she was a bit of a nerd. Emma Stone has cornered the market on these types of characters, from Gwen Stacy in Amazing Spider-Man to whatever her character’s name was in Easy A.
