Now that he’s had a taste of the small screen life, Jason Taylor finds himself thinking more about his acting career than his football one, as noted on ESPN’s Sunday Conversation last night: “In 10 years from now, when I’m 43 years old, I’m hoping that people are talking more about the things I’ve done in the film business than what I did in football or dancing.”
First, let’s nip this in the bud: you didn’t do anything in the world of dancing, Jason. Twyla Tharp’s not quivering in her taps and you’re not exactly on the Gregory Hines career path. You were on a ‘reality TV’ show. Bless you, but you’re not a dancer now.
Still, we loved Taylor in The Defensive End That Ate London and are rooting for him to pull a key supporting role in Cloverfield II: Electric Boogaloo (with heavy promotional sponsorship by Dramamine). Certainly, we expect him to be more successful than Tiki Barber, who was last spotted… actually, has anyone seen Tiki Barber recently? (No points for spotting Ronde.)
