J.J. Watt has said he wants to do movies when his playing career is done. And while Houston Texans fans hope that day doesn’t come for some time Watt is already making his way into movies. This summer he played a middle school soccer coach who just wanted to feed his cats in “Bad Moms” and now he can currently be seen in theaters in Ang Lee’s “Billy Lynn’s Long Halftime Walk.”
In a TV Spot that was released just before the movie’s release on November 11th, we get our first peak as Watt plays something he knows really well, a football player. The credit doesn’t give Watt’s character a name, but he is seen standing next to Richard Sherman in a locker room. The weirdest thing might be that J.J. is wearing number 95 in the movie.
We don’t know how much Watt is featured in the movie, but the fact he makes a brief cameo in the trailer makes us think he has to at least have one line.
The movie has been getting great reviews as Lee takes cinema drama into 3D and the first person angle throughout the movie. The movie opened in New York and Los Angeles for Veteran’s Day and is everywhere this weekend.
