American Underdog dramatizes a story that many sports fans are already familiar with — the ascension of unknown (and undrafted) quarterback Kurt Warner through the ranks of the NFL’s elite, eventually becoming a Super Bowl winner. Of course, the film goes into a lot more detail than most of those fans know — it was certainly more than the film’s star, Zachary Levi, knew about the story. And at 41, Levi is just nine years younger than the man he’s playing, yet he says he definitely remembers being a kid as he watched Warner play football.

American Underdog opens in theaters on December 25.
