Kurt Warner found the perfect person to play him for his upcoming biopic.

The NFL legend’s incredible life story will hit the big screen in American Underdog, with Zachary Levi (Shazam!) playing the former pro athlete. And he certainly fits the part in a few first look images and new making-of video, American Underdog: From the Dream to the Big Screen, exclusive to PEOPLE.

One photo shows Levi, 40, on set with Warner, 50, with both men beaming for the camera. Even Warner thinks Levi is the “perfect person” to play him.

“We represent the same things,” Warner explains to PEOPLE in this week’s issue, on stands Friday. “When you think of someone playing you, you often think of the physical likeness they must have, but I believe Zac has both the physical and mental make-up to connect to my character.”

“Zac is a man of character and integrity, with a personal faith and belief in himself,” Warner continues. “These are all things that I possessed and things I felt helped me to accomplish what I accomplished, but more importantly have made me the man I am today.”
