Jack "Cap" Rooney

Cap Rooney
Dennis Quaid in an action or athletic film always seems to work. It may never blow you away, but it just seems natural. Perhaps it is why that we feel he gets overlooked a little too much in “Any Given Sunday”, but maybe that was the point. As “Cap” Rooney, Quaid is struggling to keep his starting Quarterback job, against the younger and flashier, “Steamin” Willie Beamen (Jamie Foxx). Rooney is not just fighting for his job, but he his fighting for his will to keep playing a sport that is punishing him physically. Of course, after seeing his barracuda of a wife (Lauren Holly) we may have understood what he was most afraid of!
Lauren Holly

Still, Quaid showed more depth in this role than he got credit for (and more than he usually does), and we suspect that he may be put on the backburner for our Hall in place of…..”Steamin” Willie Beamen.
