A story came out last week in which Charlie Sheen admitted to taking steroids during the filming of Major League. Which really makes you wonder if that scene where Wild Thing goes into the manager’s office and flips out was really good acting or just a fit of roid rage?
The truth is, it doesn’t really matter if any of these actors took performance enhancing drugs, because it’s just a movie and the whole "purity of the game" angle that people like to bring up doesn’t apply.
But it made me wonder about other actors/characters in sports movies and which of their performances might have been “tainted” by the use of PED’s.
Let me make it clear that this is all for entertainment purposes, not all of these actors have admitted to using steroids, and a few of these people are on the list based on the characters they play being “juiced” more so than the actor himself actually being on steroids.
