Maybe Rex Ryan will get to kiss Bill Belichick’s Super Bowl rings after all. The brash-talking Jets coach plays, of all things, a New England Patriots fan in an upcoming movie starring Adam Sandler. NFL Network’s Rich Eisen revealed the news on his Thursday podcast that featured Sandler. Ryan plays a Boston lawyer in “I Hate You, Dad,” which was filmed in Massachusetts last summer. It’s not Ryan’s first rodeo on the acting scene. Ryan and general manager Mike Tannenbaum had cameos on an episode of “CSI: New York” earlier this year. “He’s my lawyer,” Sandler told Eisen. “My character . . . is kind of a dirtbag guy and he’s in trouble. Rex is an inexpensive lawyer in town. He takes care of me. He’s also a mammoth Patriots fan in the movie.” Ryan as a Patriots fan? “We wrote it in the script,” Sandler said. “He was great enough to be loose and funny about it. He talks about (Tom) Brady. He talks about Coach Belichick. He’s really cool.” As expected, Ryan was fully prepared to take on the role.
So what’s next for this attention whore? Dancing With The Stars? New reality show? I’m pretty surprised Rex hasn’t made Jets jerseys with his name on the back. I don’t even want to hear ‘he’s doing it on purpose to take the spotlight and pressure off his team’. Really? Cause the whole flipping off the cameraman at the MMA fight and foot fetish youtube video all came out in the off season. This guy loves cameras more than an Asian tourist but then again I guess he’s gonna need something to fall back on since the whole coaching thing isn’t working out.
