Will Smith has always taken some pretty odd film roles. Lots of melodramatic roles such as Seven Pounds, and The Pursuit of Happyness, but then when QT offers Smith Django Unchained, he balks, saying the role isn’t big enough.

Apparently Ridley Scott‘s film about NFL concussions IS big enough, because Smith is circling that project. The film is based on a catalytic GQ article called Game Brain that took one of the first critical looks at the epidemic of concussions in the NFL.

Smith would play Bennett Omalu, a Pittsburgh doctor, originally from Africa, who first diagnosed CTE, which is the affliction that results from have having your head stepped on by 300-lb linemen for 10 years. The film is said to have been a whistleblower-type film in the vein of The Insider, but we hope with far less Russell Crowe. Like zero Russell Crowe, if we want to be specific.

Good news for NBC, bad news for everyone else who wants to hang on to their good football match-ups. As recently as last year, because Sunday Night Football got the biggest audience with no other NFL games competing, starting in week 11, the NFL gave NBC the right to steal away the week’s best matchups to serve the biggest audience.

Apparently that has worked out so well that the NFL is now offering up the week’s best games beginning in week 5.

How do the other networks (FOX, CBS) feel about this? Probably not terrific. Their best games are going to feed another stations ad revenues six weeks earlier than before.

BUT, we’re not shareholders in NewsCorp or Viacom, so we really don’t care. The best games should be on in primetime, so we’ll let what will likely be some sort of lawsuit sort all this hogwash out while we awesome football matchups every Sunday night, starting in WEEK 5.

Poor widdle Timmy Tebow and his Broncos didn’t make it to the Super Bowl. Tim and company choked hard, hopefully presaging the Broncos future as the new Buffalo Bills.

Don’t mind — I’m just a bitter Raiders fan.

Anyway, since Timmy will be sitting at home watching the tube with mommy on Super Bowl Sunday, I’m guessing he won’t be watching the big game. It would only serve the purpose of reminding him that he’s a boy in a game of men. Here’s some stuff Timmy might be watching on game day while men battle it out on the gridiron.

Left Behind

Obligatory. While Tom Brady and Eli Manning are battling it out, pass for pass, Timmy can comfort himself with this Kirk Cameron classic. Because even though one of them will be getting a ring (and probably an MVP), none of that will matter on the day that Jesus comes back and throws them both into the fiery pits of hell. We’ll see if their Super Bowl rings will save them then.

Veggie Tales

Or maybe Timmy will be feeling a little more childish. Mommy will pop some corn and get him his bankie and he’ll cuddle up with his Veggie Tales tapes. Sometime around 9:30 at night Timmy will get all Tuckered out and pops will have to carry little Timmy up to bed. Then he’ll suckle his thumb in his footy pajamas and dream of a world where he won’t be an irrelevant joke in five years.

Knute Rockne: All American

I know literally nothing about this movie except that it’s about some football player from the 17th Century and it stars a young Ronald Reagan. Right? Shit, I seriously have no idea and I can’t be bothered to look it up on Wikipedia. Point is, Tebow likes Ronald Reagan and football, so he’ll probably be pretty into watching this. Can someone have the intern write a new paragraph where this one is? Thanks.

With the Super Bowl just a few days away, and the Pro Bowl behind us, we prepare for a teary goodbye to our NFL heroes. We’ll catch up with them, perhaps, in July at training camp. However, all is not lost. Should we get the itch to reach out, we can always enjoy our favorite former football stars in movie-actor form.

Are they the best actors in the world?

Yup! Without question, the following nine performances are, at the risk of oversimplifying… art. And it’s amazing that these artists can be so great on the gridiron, and also so impressive in front of a camera.

Yeah, we got Brain Bosworth on here.

Dan Marino – Ace Ventura

In this 1994 film, Jim Carrey wasn’t the only breakout star. Dan Marino went from non-Super Bowl-winning Isotoner glove pitchman to non-Super Bowl-winning cameo-maker. It was a huge leap in his career, considering he retired without a Super Bowl victory to hang his hat on.

In the film, Dan Marino is memorable not just for his luscious curly hair, but his ability to point out Ray Finkle’s tucked dick, and holding his own against fellow thespian Tone Loc. No, not holding his penis against Tone. We meant holding his own in the acting department. Never mind.

After this extended cameo, I believe that Dan Marino should still rot in hell, but should probably die of something less painful than gonorrhea.

Cookie?

Brett Favre – There’s Something About Mary

It’s a shame that this film came out over a decade before Brett Favre got caught taking pictures of his weenus whilst wearing Crocs, because if anyone could have had some fun with that, it would be the Farrelly brothers.

In the film, “Brett” is alluded to as Mary’s old boyfriend, but only in the last few minutes of the film do we realize that her ex is Packers QB Brett Favre. Brett makes an absolute meal out of the role, and he does it wearing jean, possibly Wrangler-brand, which leads me to believe that he didn’t just develop his great fashion sense late in his career.

Here, we see a DVD karaoke extra in which he gets tackled by Warren, which probably shaved a few years off of Favruh’s career.

Alex Karras – Webster

Alex Karras was a Detroit Lion from 1958-62 and again from 1964-1970. He missed the 1963 season for “gambling activities,” which is almost as awesome as the fact that he played Emmanuel Lewis’ adoptive father, George Papadapolis, which is a very, very fun name to say. Try it.

Now, please.

George POP-O-DOP-O-LIS.

There are probably a few clips more demonstrative than this opening titles sequence I chose to embed, but the shitty production value makes this one a delightful no-brainer. Besides, if you want to see what kind of actor Alex Karras is, just pause at the :17 mark, where we see him just OWNING the role of “important business man checking his watch because time is money.”

Chances are that you’ve seen a football game in your life that could only be described as unbelievable. We usually reserve this classification for feats of amazing sportsmanship, but in the case of Hollywood movies, sometimes “unbelievable” just means incredibly stupid. In the long history of

This gritty look at the inside world of college football did very little to associate itself with realism or the rules of the game. This is blatantly on display when hotshot quarterback Joe Kane is able to score a game-winning touchdown despite the fact that he throws an incomplete pass.

The Dark Knight Rises – Field Crumbles

The film isn’t in theaters yet but from what we saw in the trailer, we have some pretty ridiculous events ahead of us. The scene in question concerns a professional football game literally crashed by Bane. The villian rigs the field for demolition and blows it up during game play. However, instead of multiple explosions sending dirt and athlete everywhere, the field actually caves in with the players falling to their doom. That’s one way to fix a game, but pretty unbelievable.

After decades spent annoying people who just want to watch football in peace, Hank Williams Jr. has finally been fired by ESPN after comparing President Obama to Hitler. Looks like I’m voting Obama. Hell, I’d vote for Hitler if it would keep Hank Williams Jr. off my television.

In an interview with Fox NewsFox & Friends (insert your own Hitler joke), the country singer compared the President’s recent golf outing with House Speaker John Boehner to “Hitler playing golf with Benjamin Netanyahu.” For those of you who are stupid, Netanyahu is Jewish, so he wouldn’t want to play golf with Hitler. Get it?

In all fairness to Bocephus, it doesn’t sound like he was making a literal comparison between Obama and a man who gassed million upon millions of people, but was simply trying to imply that Boehner and Obama are polar opposites. But either way, at least I’ll never have to hear that stupid sh*t-kicking Monday Night Football song ever again.

So, do you think it was fair to fire Hank Williams Jr., or are you some sort of Hitler lover?

The NFL is back, and not a moment too soon. I’ve been running out of excuses for spending my Sundays piss drunk at a bar shoving fried food down my throat. But from now until February, NFL football will enable me to act like the pig I truly am. The problem is this: when you’re near blacked out by halftime of the early game, it can be hard to remember what channel is covering the late game. Well, we’ve got you covered. Below you’ll find a guide containing all the info you’ll need.

Here’s where you can find the games this season:

NBC

The season kicked off last night when the last two Superbowl champs, the Packers and the Saints, met at Lambeau Field, and the whole affair was broadcast on NBC. Going forward, the network will also broadcast the Sunday night games, beginning with the Dallas Cowboys facing the New York Jets on September 11th. Al Michaels hosts the play-by-play while Cris Collinsworth fills in the color commentary. Bob Costas, Dan Patrick, Tony Dungy, Rodney Harrison, and Peter King report live from the game and handle pregame hosting duties.

ESPN

Monday nights belong to ESPN once again. This year, get ready for some football when the New England Patriots head to South Florida to square off against the Miami Dolphins on September 12th. Mike Tirico is on play-by-play and Jon Gruden and Ron Jaworski provide color commentary. Additional reporting comes from Suzy Kolber.

FOX

FOX is the station that you’ll do a good majority of your screaming at on Sundays this fall. Joe Buck and Troy Aikman will host the broadcasts of the NFC regional regular season games as well as the NFC playoffs. Curt Menefee hosts the pregame with in-studio analysts Terry Bradshaw, Howie Long, Jimmy Johnson, and Michael Strahan. Pregame and sideline reporting duties  will be covered by Pam Oliver.

 CBS

And you can catch the AFC regular season games as well as the AFC playoffs on Sunday afternoons on CBS. James Brown hosts with play-by-play from Jim Nantz, Marv Albert, Craig Bolerjack, Don Criqui, Spero Dedes, Ian Eagle, Greg Gumbel, Kevin Harlan, Bill Macatee. Studio analysts are Phil Simms, Charley Casserly, Bill Cowher, Boomer Esiason, Dan Marino, and Shannon Sharpe.

NFL Network

You’d better get yourself a satellite dish if you want to catch the Thursday night games. Rich Eisen, Steve Mariucci, Deion Sanders, and Marshall Faulk report live with contributions from  Kara Henderson and Michelle Beisner. Brad Nessler is on play-by-play and Mike Mayock is analyst starting this season. Beginning in Week 10, NFL Network will begin showing Thursday games with Oakland making the long trek to San Diego. Just hope that you don’t get heavy rain or sunspots in your area.

Let’s Watch Peyton Manning’s Funniest Moments (Since We Probably Won’t Be Watching Him On The Field) http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-lists/lets-watch-peyton-mannings-funniest-moments-since-we-probably-wont-be-watching-him-on-the-field/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-lists/lets-watch-peyton-mannings-funniest-moments-since-we-probably-wont-be-watching-him-on-the-field/#comments Thu, 08 Sep 2011 21:53:17 +0000 Penn Collins http://www.screenjunkies.com/?p=227618 He's like the Louis C.K. of football. Yup.

With the NFL season kicking off this weekend, the hottest topic of discussion is Peyton Manning’s neck injury, which will keep him from building on his impressive streak of 208 consecutive starts. Word today is that Manning is currently undergoing neck surgery because his head is on the verge of falling off or something. Whatever. This is a movie site. Go somewhere else for sports news.

However, because we’re a movie/TV/entertainment site, we would be remiss if we didn’t use Manning’s misfortune to capitalize on the soon-to-be influx of Google searches on his name. So, let’s all send some positive vibes to Manning, hoping that he not only can regain his health, but return to the gridiron, where the guy is every team’s worst nightmare when he has two minutes left and the ball.

Vibes sent? Great. Now let’s appreciate Manning for his work off the field. No, not charity. That’s lame. His unique brand of deadpan comedy that has made him one of the most marketable athletes in the world.

9. Football Cops

Not his most inspired work, but it’s amazing how much comedic mileage simply slapping on a fake mustache and a police uniform can get you.

Big drawback here: Being paired up once again with Eli. Eli’s just not that funny. We get it. They’r brothers.

Still…mustaches!

8. Priceless Pep Talks – Love Handles

Just because he’s being a dick doesn’t mean he’s wrong. Sorry, Jesse

7. Sprint Commercial

Hmm. We’re only three entries in and we’ve already got two that heavily rely on Peyton Manning wearing a fake mustache. I don’t care.

I apologize for nothing.

The NFL is not a place for the weak. In order to win, you need to push your body and mind to their limits, and even that isn’t enough all of the time. It’s an aggressive, punishing sport. So why does it constantly get paired with the cheesiest, fluffiest music? For years, half-time shows and TV theme songs have been performed by odd choices that have nothing to do with the sport. So, why has pop continually gone hand in hand with the big game? It doesn’t keep the momentum going and it’s not pleasing to anyone with ears. Does the NFL really think a shitty musical act is going to make non-fans interested? Is it intended to get our kids dancing? We’re not trying to raise cheerleaders.

Here’s a collection of the worst musical performances that we’ve had to suffer through to enjoy smashmouth football. And, no, Smashmouth did not make the list. Though they so could have.

P!nk – Sunday Night Football Theme



Y!kes!! Th!s st!nks! !’m afra!d P!nk m!ght not be taken ser!ously as an art!st after do!ng th!s. Even Hank W!ll!ams, Jr !s less hokey than th!s and he’s l!ke a poor man’s Randy “Macho Man” Savage.

Elvis Presto – Super Bowl XXIII



Of course, we were all shocked when Janet Jackson’s breast was exposed during the Super Bowl XXXVIII Half-Time Show, but at least that was a show. Take a look at what passed as a Half-Time Show at Super Bowl XXIII. A magic Elvis doing an elaborate, non-nonsensical card trick while dancers end their careers behind him. No wonder the Bud Bowl was so popular. This wouldn’t even be cool on a cruise ship. I really hope the FCC fined somebody over this.

Kat DeLuna – National Anthem



If Kat DeLuna thought these Dallas Cowboys fans were harsh when she butchered the National Anthem, she’d better be happy she didn’t mess with the Anthem of Texas. I’m told they hate that.

NFL’s Oldest Cheerleader And Her Ancient Pom-Poms Get Biopic http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/nfls-oldest-cheerleader-and-her-ancient-pom-poms-get-biopic/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/nfls-oldest-cheerleader-and-her-ancient-pom-poms-get-biopic/#comments Fri, 25 Mar 2011 03:45:25 +0000 Geoffrey Golden http://www.screenjunkies.com/?p=203609 New Line will make a biopic about the NFL's oldest cheerleader ever, Laura Vikmanis, who worked her ass off so she could shake her ass off for the Cincinnati Bengals.

An NFL team hired a cheerleader who is 42-years-old. That means everyone who claims agism exists must be a liar. You can’t argue with the facts.

New Line will make a biopic about the NFL‘s oldest cheerleader ever, Laura Vikmanis, who worked her ass off so she could shake her ass off for the Cincinnati Bengals. The studio bought the pitch by Emily Cook and Kath Greenberg, who wrote Ratatouille, arguably Pixar‘s best film, and Gnomeo & Juliet, which is… well, Gnomeo & Juliet.

Vikmanis was rightfully upset when her husband bailed on her for a younger woman, leaving her with two teenage kids. Once a dancer, she decided to try out for the Bengals squad and failed. No doubt that scene will be full of nice, encouraging 21-year-olds who won’t make fun of her at all. But after a year-long training montage, Vikmanis returned for vengeance, and vengeance she received, in the form of getting on the team and being happy about that.

The film will be produced by Richard and Lauren Shuler Donner. (Hollywood Reporter)

De Niro to Grimace and Squint as ‘Lombardi’ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/de-niro-to-grimace-and-squint-as-lombardi/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/de-niro-to-grimace-and-squint-as-lombardi/#comments Wed, 30 Nov -0001 00:00:00 +0000 Following in the footsteps of Brian Dennehy and Craig T. Nelson, Robert De Niro has signed on to play an iconic coach in the ESPN Films biopic Lombardi. Arguably the greatest coach in NFL history, Vince Lombardi led the Green Bay Packers to two Superbowl and five league championship wins. I should also mention dude could burp the entire alphabet... backwards. Doesn't sound too impressive to you, but in Wisconsin that is a godlike ability.The film, to be written by Eric Roth (Forrest Gump), will focus on the 8 years that Lombardi spent with the Packers, molding them into NFL champs. Very little time will be spent on his epic belching. (THR)
