Tom Cruise might have seemed like the perfect Jerry Maguire, but Cameron Crowe didn't have him in mind when from the start.

Today on The Dan Patrick Show, Cameron Crowe joined the program and discussed the iconic movie that he wrote, produced, and directed. Initially, the entire script was written for Tom Hanks believe it or not. The story of how it all unfolded is incredible.

You can hear The Dan Patrick Show every weekday from 9-12 noon est. on Fox Sports Radio.
