Cape Town - Love him or hate him, Eddie Jones is one of rugby's most colourful and unpredictable characters. 

Spare a thought, then, for 57-year-old New Zealander Temuera Morrison, who has been cast as the actor set to portray Jones in an upcoming movie that tells the story of Japan's famous win over the Springboks at the 2015 World Cup in England. 

Jones, currently coaching England, was in charge of a Japanese side that pulled off one of rugby's greatest stories. 

Morrison, meanwhile, is perhaps best known for his main role on New Zealand soap opera Shortland Street.

In 2002, Morrison also starred in Star Wars: Episode II - Attack of the Clones

The movie will be directed by Australian filmmaker Max Mannix and production is set to get underway in January next year. 

We found a picture of Morrison and we're a little undecided in terms of how much he looks like Jones. 

You make your own mind up ...
