WATCH: Marshawn Lynch stars in new teen adult comedy with Rachel Sennott
Marshawn Lynch has made the career switch from football to Hollywood. The former NFL running back has found his first starring role in a teen adult comedy movie.
The flick is called "Bottoms" and also stars Rachel Sennott. Judging by the trailer, Lynch plays an important character in the film.
The five-time Pro Bowler seemingly plays a high school teacher who helps two students run a self-defense club. His comedic timing can also be seen in the preview, with a few scene-stealing phrases about his mother and therapy.
The final bit of the trailer shows one of the girls landing an uppercut on a football player, probably suggesting that Lynch's training paid off.
Although Lynch has made impressive cameos in shows like "Westworld" and "Murderville," this is his first feature film where he doesn't just play himself.
"Bottoms" will premiere on August 25, 2023, and NFL fans will surely be eager to see what Lynch has in store for them post-retirement.
