John Riggins has made it to the big screen.

The legendary Redskins running back stars in a football scene for the new Kevin Hart vehicle, “The Wedding Ringer,” which hit theaters Friday.

The R-rated comedy also stars Josh Gad, who plays a man about to get married but needs help throwing together a wedding party and finding a best man. Hart’s character comes to save a potential embarrassment, obtaining a group of random groomsmen in time for the wedding.

As these kinds of movies typically go, Gad must face off against his father-in-law in a game of pickup touch football. It just so happens that “new dad” has some football friends: Hall of Famers Joe Namath, Ed “Too Tall” Jones and Riggins.

“This is one football game for the ages,” Gad told USA Today. 

“We got to play with the legends — ‘Broadway’ Joe Namath, John Riggins, Ed ‘Too Tall’ Jones,” Hart said. “These players were the scariest guys in their day. And they can definitely lay you out.”

Riggins is no stranger to acting however. After he was inducted in to the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 1992, Riggins starred in Off-Broadway productions of “Gillette” and “A Midsummer Night’s Dream.”

He also played a head football coach accused of illegal recruiting practices in the play “Illegal Motion.”

For any “One Tree Hill fans,” you may also remember Riggins played Ken Arthur, a sports agent, for three episodes in the show.

“Riggo” always did have that movie star appeal (just look at his head shot). Maybe this is the start of a new career.

On Saturday, 100 Women Of Washington Redskins Fan Club members turned the Redskins Indoor Training Facility into their fitness workout zone.

The afternoon featured Nike trainer Deanna Jefferson who ran a fast-paced interactive fitness class featuring Zumba dancing and partner-based circuit training.

The day also included a Chalk Talk/Q&A to help keep the women participating on their “New Year, New Me” resolution track.

The main takeaway from Jefferson’s presentation was for those in attendance to set “S.M.A.R.T.” goals for themselves. According to Jefferson, fitness resolutions and goals are much easier to obtain if they are Specific, Measurable, Accountable, Realistic, and Time-specific.

If the acronym was difficult for the women to remember, Jefferson made it simple.

“Believe, plan, and make it happen.”

Fan Inserts Akeem Davis Quote Into Shoes

Safety Akeem Davis knows the importance of hard work.

Swapping roles between the special teams and the defense last season, keeping the same mentality through the ups and downs has given Davis the strength to keep fighting.

“Every time you go out there it’s like a competition,” he said. “You’ve got to get down there fast and you’ve got to wreak havoc when you get down there. I enjoy that part of the game. Being able to block guys, create space for the returner, get down there make a play on special teams that changes the momentum of the game.”

The attitude is defined by a quote he returns to often: “Keep grinding.”

It motivated one fan enough to insert the phrase into the tongues of his Nike shoes, the perfect place to remind yourself as you get ready for the day.
