Favre the actor?
If you're a sports fan like me, you've been reading the news all morning - Brett Favre has completed tarnishing his Green Bay legacy and is heading to New York. After 16 seasons with the Packers, Favre decided to retire, unretire and then ask to be traded. He got his wish and he's headed East where apparently New Jersey was a big draw for him (seriously!). But alas, this is not a sports website and we're here to talk about movies.
While I'm sure you all know about Brett Favre's cameo in THERE'S SOMETHING ABOUT MARY, you might not know about his other big acting break. I was able to track down some video of Favre's appearance in the movie REGGIE'S PRAYER where the young quarterback stars as a janitor named Burt who may or may not be retarded (doesn't he know you never go full retard?). I never heard of this film (it was released in 1996) but if you're a big fan of the sports heroes starring in terrible movies genre you can actually buy it here (and might I suggest Joe Namath in CC AND COMPANY). Check out Favre in action below!
|Extra Tidbit:||The Jets are actually Favre's third NFL team. He was drafted by the Falcons and traded to the Packers one year later.|
