VV: I love Montana. I can't hold any grudge against Montana. He's like Elvis. He's the best.
Was there a lot of fiction in Rudy?
VV: I don't know. For me, I was so happy to be in the film. I remember telling my dad I was in the movie, then I realized I had my hat on in the few scenes I was in. So I had to say, "Just look for number 44. I promise you, Dad, that's me."
If you went to the NFL scouting combine, what talents would stand out?
VV: I think the biggest thing I would bring couldn't get measured in the combine, and that's tenacity.
And heart, too.
VV: Yeah, a little bit of heart, too. In the movie Rudy, if I had half the heart, I would have been All-American. In real life, I have that heart. In real life, I don't necessarily have the speed or the skills or the coordination. But I'd like to think I could be a body out there that's willing to compete.
Will we ever see a sequel to Dodgeball?
VV: People have asked about that one a lot. I've always been open to doing a sequel if the idea for the new one is as good as the first one. Todd Phillips is doing The Hangover 2. We did Old School together. And there used to be talk of us doing Old School 2. So I'm excited to see what they do with that one.
