Bareback Bandit Matt Leinart Aspires To Be A Thespian

“BAREBACK BANDIT” LEINART ASPIRES TO ACTING CAREER: The public relations abortion that is Matt Leinart’s off-the-field image continued this week with the news that he hardly participates in the raising of his infant son, Cole.

Thankfully Leinart, who as Trojan QB was (ironically) nicknamed “Bareback Bandit” by USC teammates, now is a bit more discreet when it comes to picking up prospective sex partners.

Because of sports and entertainment media backlash, Leinart now has a third-party friend hand a prospective hottie his publicist’s card (Sandy Friedman of Rogers and Cowan). The girl then makes the call and the hookup soon ensues.

Leinart’s career is being steered by someone named Chuck Price, a family friend who also serves as #7’s representation. Price was in on the recent decision by Leinart to leave Hollywood’s top talent agency, Creative Artists Agency. This despite Leinart telling numerous acquaintances that he wants to become an actor after his playing days (which may well come sooner than you think).

And as we’ve reported here before, the main reason Leinart left CAA was he was upset that agency stable-mate Peyton Manning landed an SNL hosting gig before he did.
