It’s a Wrap: AM’s Hollywood Fantasy League Draft is Complete!

As I mentioned earlier this week, Anomalous Material was in the throws of its FOURTH Hollywood Fantasy League (HFL) draft. At that time I had reported my top three picks. Four rounds later and I am all set for 2012. The goal was to have 3 actors, 3 actress and 1 director.

So without further ado, here is my “Fantasy Team”:


(clockwise, left to right: Michael Fassbender, Naomie Harris, Idris Elba, Olivia Williams, Julianne Moore and Sam Riley)




This talented set of individuals will be directed by:

Kathryn Bigelow

The next task for me is what to do with them. One of the options we have in this league is to come up with a movie pitch based on our selections. That is where I am stumped! Stayed tuned here for updates in the coming weeks and months …

One final note: major props to our esteemed League Commissioner, Castor, for putting this all together and keeping it moving.


Let the games begin!


  1. That’s a very formidable starting lineup!! It definitely has a notable Black Brit flare!!!

  2. Fassbender is hot property right now. Bet that was a bit of coup to bag him in the fantasy draft. This is a great line-up.

  3. Hi, iluv and company:

    Wicked cool line up of actors. Excellent choice of director.

    All you need is a story to pitch. Please, do not make it a romantic comedy. 🙂

  4. Great cast Iba! Hope you fun during the draft! I know I did 🙂

  5. Oooh, Fassbender and Elba in one movie!! Cool, they’re gonna be co-starring in Prometheus too, right? Love your cast Iba, can’t believe you’ve actually met Sam Riley at a coffee shop, that is VERY cool!

    • Thanks Ruth. Just a random (early) Saturday morning in NYC (re: Sam Riley)

      Actually I have lots of ‘sightings’ in my memory banks. Will have to tell you about them someday. 🙂

  6. Good cast. I will admit when at first i didn’t get the hype for Fassbender, but after seeing him in more roles i understand it more.

  7. Oh, I love your cast: Fassbender, Julianne Moore and Sam Riley? Great choices, the latter will be huge next year after On the road comes out (can’t wait for that one)! Love your blog, by the way, putting it on my blogroll now 🙂


  1. […] all this potential, it is no wonder that I selected him for my HFL squad! Share this:ShareFacebookEmailStumbleUponPrint Filed Under: Commentary Tagged With: sam […]
