Les Miles to Star in Movies About the Challenger Space Shuttle Disaster

The Mad Hatter may be heading back to the coaching ranks, but that ain't stopping him from shooting his shot at another passion.

Les Miles is set to have a starring role in an upcoming movie about the Challenger Space Shuttle disaster called "Angry Men."

“It was so fun,” Miles told The Advocate. “I am one of the NASA chiefs. The engineers came to the chief and to the other contracting companies and said, ‘Wait to launch.’ They said, ‘We’re not going to.’ The engineers were right.”

I admit, it probably ain't going to be a box office smash, win many awards, or even show up in your local theatre, but it's a legit movie and it looks like he's going to get quite a bit of screen time.

This is just another notch on Miles' IMDB profile, which I have just learned exists and lists three additional movies. And it misses just a few minor details regarding his personal life, although it nails his nicknames.

Next time ESPN throws up a Les Miles bio graphic, I'm going to be furious if it doesn't say "known for Daisy and Smiling Jack, The Last Whistle (2019) and When the Game Stands Tall (2014).
