David Ortiz Reportedly Will Re-Enact His ‘This Is Our City’ Speech In ‘Patriots Day’


The moment President Barack Obama called one of his proudest while in the Oval Office will be featured in the upcoming “Patriots Day” movie, and David Ortiz reportedly will be the one again involved in it.

The Boston Red Sox designated hitter will re-enact his famous “This is our (expletive) city” speech in Mark Wahlberg’s upcoming film about the 2013 Boston Marathon bombing, sources told The Hollywood Reporter.

The details of when the Red Sox slugger will take time out of his busy in-season schedule to film the scene at the South Weymouth Naval Air Station, where other “Patriots Day” scenes were filmed, have yet to be determined.

The movie is using actual news footage and actors for most of the people involved, but director Pete Berg has decided to take a different course for Big Papi’s iconic moment.
