    Who is your favorite NFL player-turned-actor? http://fb.me/SG6GjWNt

    Notice Brett Favre wasn't mentioned for his cameo in Something About Mary.

    I think Matt Flynn should have the starring role for a movie. He's perfect!

    I think when A Rodg retires in 25 years, he should regrow the shaggy hair & 'stash and portray John C. Holmes in the remake of the infamous film "The life and times of Johnny Wadd".

    Can there be any doubt? I have to go with Ray Nitschke for his role in The Longest Yard with Burt Reynolds. I can't believe he didn't get any love from the NFL Network.

    The Rock makes me think, "I pick things up and put them down". Don't know about his football career.

    I just did some research. Apparently he played for the Calgary Stampeders in the CFL in the 1995 season and got cut two months into the season before he became a wrestler.

    At least he got his acting career going early when he became one.

    Also, you know who else was an NFL coach turned actor? VINCE LOMBARDI!

    He appeared in the movie "Paper Lion", a sports movie made in 1968. Here he is in this picture:

    I know this is kinda stretching it, since the title is "NFL players turned actor", but this at least deserves a mention. More information here: http://packerville.blogspot.com/2011/01/lombardi-in-hollywood.html
