The famous story of University of Texas safety Freddie Steinmark is the subject of a new movie starring Aaron Eckhart, and it's being filmed around Texas.
A few scenes of My All American were shot at the Cotton Bowl, and rather than travel to Lubbock the film's producers are using Amon G. Carter Stadium as the home field for Texas Tech to depict one game. The Austin-based production crew had about 60 football players at TCU, as well as a small number of extras to play cheerleaders, reporters and fans.
The movie is directed by veteran sports movie maker Angelo Pizzo, who wrote the screenplays for Hoosiers and Rudy. He also wrote this script.
Justin Street is playing his father, former UT quarterback James Street, in the movie.
Former UT receiver Jordan Shipley also has a role.
Actor Finn Wittrock plays Steinmark, and Eckhart is UT coach Darrell Royal.
Former SMU quarterback Kyle Padron is playing the part of a number of quarterbacks.
Here are a handful of pictures from the production. Look closely at the one shot of a woman applying makeup to the actor - that is Eckhart, who apparently is a "method" actor and very much in DKR mode on Wednesday.
