Finally, the Les Miles Challenger Movie Is about to Drop

Les Miles has always been delightfully peculiar, shaping and confusing young minds with his folksy brand of unconventional wisdom.
As wonderful and rife with possibility as this could be, there's another development that practically has us trembling with anticipation.
The Mad Hatter is in a movie.
And this isn't just a brief cameo as Security Guard No 3 or Random Passerby No 4.
Miles actually has a prominent speaking role.
Oh, but it gets better.
We just happen to have a trailer of The Challenger Disaster, which as the title would suggest, documents the 1986 Challenger disaster.
Holy hell, that was intense.

Les would've owned that scene.
A cursory glance at the IMDB page of actor/college football coach Les Miles reveals previous credits as Oklahoma Scout No 1 and Uniformed Officer, but he's also got two other projects in the pipeline for 2019.
However, the role of Nelson in The Challenger Disaster is his meatiest yet, actually featuring his name on the poster.
While we wish the Mad Hatter luck with his side gig, we still prefer him in his more familiar element.
That is pure gold.
