Glory Road (2006) Poster



Jump to: Cameo (1)
Josh Lucas gained forty-three pounds to play Coach Don Haskins.
The technical adviser for the basketball scenes was USC head coach Tim Floyd, who was chosen because of his closeness to the film's subject, Don Haskins. During the 1980s, Floyd was Haskins' top assistant coach at UTEP (formerly Texas Western). His father, Lee Floyd, was a longtime coach and also a former Texas Western basketball player.
The photo shown at the end of the movie is a photo of the real 1965-66 Texas Western team, rather than of the actors playing those parts in the film.
Washington Wizards guard Kirk Hinrich was offered a part in the movie, but had to turn it down due to schedule conflicts.
Prosthetic ears, cheeks, and nose was added to Jon Voight to make his angular face more rounded like Coach Adolph Rupp.
Ben Affleck was originally set to play Don Haskins, but pulled out of the project due to scheduling conflicts.
