Heisman Trophy Award winner at Baylor. Standout rookie quarterback for the Washington Redskins. And now TV star?
Robert Griffin III has certainly had a whirlwind past year or so, which has included lots of success on the field and a variety of activities — appearances, commercials, etc. — off of it. Take, for example, his May appearance on “The Tonight Show.”
Thursday night, however, will be a first for Griffin III: his TV sitcom debut.
Griffin III will make an appearance on FX’s “The League,” a show about the crazy and hilarious world of fantasy football, and we’ve got a couple previews of his appearance.
– This clip from BetterWithPopcorn.com shows Griffin III on “draft day.” He’s got some real acting skills. Click here to check it out.
– The NFL Network’s Rich Eisen — also a guest star on the show — released this clip yesterday. Click here to check it out.
Pretty funny stuff, huh?
Griffin III confirmed to me today that his appearance on “The League” wasn’t taped during the NFL Draft, which is when he was wearing that same suit and those famous socks. He said the producers actually made him dig that same outfit out of his closet and wear it for the show’s taping.
And, if I’m not mistaken, Griffin III’s fiance, Rebecca, also makes a cameo in the first clip above.
Ahh — Hollywood magic.
Anyway, here’s another short promo video for Griffin III’s appearance on ‘The League,’ in case you can’t get enough:
The season debut of ‘The League’ with Griffin III will air at 10:30 p.m. (ET) Thursday on FX.
