Redknapp has admired Winstone since watching his big film break almost 30 years ago in a story about life in a borstal.
"My favourite actor's Ray Winstone," Redknapp told the Mirror. "Ever since I first saw him in Scum all those years ago. He's a good East End boy is Ray, so he could play me. Fantastic actor, terrific guy and a West Ham fan, too. Perfect."
