Michael Phelps to Star in "Tarzan" Remake?

Michael Phelps to Star in "Tarzan" Remake?Submit Comment
Back in the 1920s, Johnny Weissmuller become one of the world's fastest swimmers by winning five Olympic gold medals and setting 67 records. After his swimming career, MGM hired him to play the lead in the studio's "Tarzan" movie, a role he went on to play twelve times.

Now comes word that Michael Phelps is set to follow in Weissmuller's footsteps by taking on the Tarzan role in a remake of the classic film that will be directed by David Yates (Harry Potter) for Warner Bros. The Sunday Times reported the news, but says that the studio has yet to confirm anything.

Meanwhile, Phelps has joined "The Haney Project" on the Golf Channel, which will feature the swimmer on his quest to play better golf. He will be coached by Hank Haney, who previously helped Tiger Woods, Charles Barkley, and Ray Romano perfect their games. Production on the new season begins next month.

So, has Phelps already c*m out saying he polishes cane, or will he wait a bit like Mark Spitz did?

Because were I to judge a book by his cover, I'd say Vivid Entertainment should have jumped on him to be on the Heiny Project... IF you get my meaning?

'Phelps is set to follow in Weissmuller's footsteps' --- why, did Johnny's version also see Tarzan die from The HIV?

Really, I'm not saying Phelps is homo... but if the swimmers c*ck fits into ChaseEvolutions ass... wear it!
Ranger writes:

And NO homo-phobia here folks. I'm the biggest Freddie Mercury fan going. But at least Freddie could sing (without a man in his ass).

Well this won't happen and I can't imagine after all the poo tang he could score with winning those medals he passed it up for Chase's dong!! Wtf??
minkowski writes:
on August 14th, 2012 at 11:35:07 AM

It's a known fact that even with all his medals, Phelps still can't score.

In fact, there was an interview I recall with a female former swim team colleague who, when asked if she was romantically involved with Phelps, said she wasn't interested in him.

The way she said it was like he had AIDS written all over him, the way cheerleaders refuse to associate with the math nerds.

Yeah, no p*ssy for him.

As for the news, yeah right. He may have that Down Syndrome of the Amazon look down, but no one, and I mean no one, is going to throw this gape-faced galoot into a film costing more than the sledgehammer it would take to realign his face with modern humanity.

The guy looks like Nick Stahl character from Sin City

Speaking of which, Has Nick offed himself or is he still ignoring his family and playing silly bugers with some down and outs somewhere, Who remember him from T3 and liked it

Phelps is the man! But I hate to admit it but I noticed some slit body language in his after win interview that made me say Hmmmm. Anyway he should play Aqua man if anything
pornfly writes:
on August 14th, 2012 at 3:08:36 PM

they shouldv interviewed a chic not in the swim business,she has better options than a normal so of course shes got her nose in the air.
That guy has crazy groupies but theyr probably wet for the medals,excitement and throw in the freak factor for good measure.
If it wasnt for swimming,he'd be Mongo the mongoloid who gets things off the top shelf for shoppers

the females are just using his ass for his fame so they can be known.he was dating some hot blonde model too.

just like that video ho Amber Rose sucking off Kanye West.
Ranger writes:
on August 14th, 2012 at 4:42:45 PM

@dwight - Phelps should play Aqua-Man if the character is known for sucking c*ck.

Not sure. But he does have a twin brother called AIDS.
