Seahawks RB Marshawn Lynch to star in movie about himself
Marshawn Lynch is set to star in a movie about Marshawn Lynch.
The Seahawks running back, who once made a cameo appearance in a Gary Busey movie called Matt's Chance, is about to be in another movie -- a movie about himself. Beast Mode will be hitting the big screen later this year in a biopic called Family First.
"Just trying something new," Lynch told the San Jose Mercury News.
The movie will look at Lynch's life from his childhood to his Super Bowl win with the Seahawks and everything in between.
"For me, it's just about having some fun," Lynch said. "It's just a fun experience. I also get to the shine light on the community and some of the things that we grew up doing and what we went through."
The film will also chronicle Lynch's high school days in Oakland, Calif., and his college years at the University of California, Berkeley.
"I'm more than ready to play myself," Lynch said. "I got the acting bug when I played a small role in Matt's Chance starring Gary Busey. I definitely want to expand my opportunities after football. I've also been on a couple TV shows, so I'm not nervous."
The only thing that could make this project better is if a free bag of Skittles comes with every movie ticket.
