NFL Players as Actors
From individuals who played both sides of the ball during high school, to remarkable multi-sport, professional athletes like Deion Sanders and Bo Jackson, football has a rich history of exceptional performers. It’s only natural that a few NFL players have answered the call of Hollywood. Some of these players surprised us all with their abilities, while others probably should have stuck to the gridiron.
1. Terry Crews:
The definition of multi-talented, Crews earned an Art Excellence Scholarship to Western Michigan University, as well as a full-ride athletic scholarship for football. After a six-year career in the NFL and NFL-Europe, Crews began his acting career, for which he is arguably better known. Along with everyone’s favorite Old Spice commercials, the prolific actor has 59 acting credits to his name.
