As a means of getting away from the never-ending CBA debacle, I thought it would be fun to put something silly up for discussion. Last night, while admittedly inebriated, a friend and I started a discussion on which NFL players could be compared to actors / celebrities. I've listed a few Hawks and reasons why, can anyone add to the discussion so I can look prepared for the next time a Tuesday night becomes debauched?
Matt Hass - Tom Hanks
The eponymous Mr. Nice Guy. Doesn’t dominate media attention but never ceases to be charming in interview. Hass had a few upper echelon seasons like Hanks during Private Ryan and Forrest Gump but later seasons have proven to be more of a Da Vinci Code.
PC - Tom Cruise
Mr. Hollywood. Boundless energy and a positive attitude that borders on being creepy, but is always available for a perfect toothy smile and engaging interview.
BMW – John Travolta
Both had huge early career success, Big Mike blasted onto the scene at USC much like Travolta with Grease and Saturday Night Fever, but both put on weight and Mike’s first few seasons were a veritable “Urban Cowboy”. BMW’s first season back was his “Look Who’s Talking” moment, let’s hope he goes out and does "Pulp Fiction" next year.
Russell Okung – Michael Clarke Duncan
Solely because while both are huge, something about them says that they’re much more liable to give you a bear hug in an affectionate rather than chest-caving way. Both have 0-7 records in tickle fights but will lay you out if you sneak in a pinch.
