Who would play Aaron Rodgers in the Aaron Rodgers movie? We asked him and other athletes to cast themselves.

Tom Hanks as Marc Gasol? We see it. And ... action! Ward Sutton

Who would play you in the movie of your life? Admit it: It's a question you've pondered more than once. Turns out, athletes think about it too, so we asked 11 of them to cast themselves. Athletes, they're just like us!

"Brad Pitt in his prime, but he's a great deal older than me, so my buddy who's also a Packers fan and a good actor in his own right: Harry Styles. Though I don't think he could throw a football that well. But Harry would do a good job. He just has to figure out that American accent." -- Aaron Rodgers, Green Bay Packers

"Gabrielle Union. She's goofy. She's awesome. She looks amazing. She says what she wants and she doesn't feel bad for telling the truth. And a fellow mom. Oh my gosh, her baby is so cute. And she married her best friend." -- Glory Johnson, Dallas Wings

"Drake, if the budget is big enough." -- Fred VanVleet, Toronto Raptors

"DC Young Fly. He's just getting into acting, but he's super funny. He started off on social media just clowning around." -- Todd Gurley, Los Angeles Rams

"Blake Lively. She's cast in these really idealistic female roles, and then she comes out with these strong female heroine capabilities, and I love seeing that in her. Her fierceness is hiding under the surface." -- Monica Abbott, USA Softball

"Everyone smooth enough is old. I mean, Idris Elba can't play me. Michael B. Jordan? No, he's too short. He's skinny-built. Who's my guy who played M'baku [in Black Panther]? [Winston Duke.] I'll let him play me." -- Cameron Jordan, New Orleans Saints

"I will play myself. That's a good answer." -- Holly Holm, UFC

"Tom Hanks. What's that movie he did? The Terminal? I really liked that one. There was a lot of resemblance when my brother Pau and I first got to the States. We got locked at customs and couldn't get through for a long time." -- Marc Gasol, Toronto Raptors

"Tom Hardy. I look nothing like him, but we could make it work. Dude's a chameleon. He's not American, but he could do the accent. He'd have to get a little bit uglier. That could be a challenge for him." -- Tommy La Stella, Los Angeles Angels

"The guy who played Thor, Chris Hemsworth. He's jacked up. Make me look better. Good hair." -- Greg Olsen, Carolina Panthers

"Josh Duhamel, but we may have issues with his Vikings fandom. We'll go with Justin Timberlake. He's got great dance moves and the singing -- I need that in my life." -- Mason Crosby, Green Bay Packers
