The story of Michael Oher’s journey from poverty to the NFL was well-publicized during this summer’s draft coverage, but Hollywood will have a go at it this November in the form of the Sandra Bullock vehicle “The Blind Side.”

The title is a reference to Oher’s left tackle position — the main function of which is to protect a quarterback’s blind side.

Bullock, sporting blond hair and brandishing a Southern accent, plays Oher’s adoptive mother, Leigh Anne Touhy.
