When Olympic athletes make history, it's only a matter of time before Hollywood comes calling. If we were in charge of the casting process, here's who we would pick:

John Krasinski as Michael Phelps (Swimming)

From water cooler to water sport, John Krasinski could easily take on the role of Michael Phelps.

Karen Allen as Misty May-Treanor (Beach Volleyball)

After Karen Allen's Hollywood comeback in "Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull," we could definitely see her taking on Misty.

Laura Linney as Kerri Walsh (Beach Volleyball)

Known for her more dramatic roles, we'd love to see Laura Linney try her hand on the sand as Kerri Walsh.

Rashida Jones as Lolo Jones (Track & Field)

Sharing the same last name makes this look-alike pair seem like more than just a coincidence.

Andrew Garfield as Andy Murray (Tennis)

From Spider-Man to pro tennis athlete: Not too far-fetched.
