After 12 seasons in the National Football League (NFL), the former Green Bay Packers running back Ahman Green is taking new role in different stage, which is on Hollywood. Green plays a role in the new movie “Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice” scheduled to released in theaters on March 25th.
In a recent interview for a podcast called “Just Not Sports,” the retired running back Ahman Green talked regarding his character in the movie as “Thug No. 2,” which he explained that it as “more than an extra.”
Via Matt McGloin of Cosmic Booknews:
I think I’m more than an extra because I got a lot of camera time. My character name is Thug No. 2, and if you go to IMDB.com right now I am on the cast list. So I think I’m more than an extra. That was just a dream come true, a great opportunity that (director) Zack Synder and their casting director gave me to be on set.
I’m actually in the process of making Thug No. 2 T-shirts. So Thug #2 T-shirts are coming to a Web site soon.
“I just stayed consistent with contacting him and finally I got a call from Warner Bros. Studios setting up flights. It was just like, ‘Yes, here we go!'”
According to IMDB, this is the fourth film in which Ahman Green has acted. Green made his acting debut dating back in 2005 for “Chester McPhail.” The ex-Green Bay Packers player also played Diamond King in “Big Stan” (2007) and a doorman in “Stretch” (2014).
Green’s role in “Batman v. Superman” is his biggest acting break to date so far. The director of the movie grew up in Wisconsin and is a legit Green Bay Packers fan, so the retired running back was able to enter and steal a role in “Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice” film.
