It must be an honor to have someone name their child after you.
"I'm a big fan of what they're doing up there man," Tom Lister said in an interview with TMZ Sports. "And Deebo, yeah I heard ESPN is trying to set something up with me and Deebo."
Lister said he's very open to collaborating with Samuel. Perhaps a movie with "Little Deebo and Big Deebo."
This movie could be the latest "Friday" installment that will be starting soon. Lister said he's hearing around December.
Oh, and a message to the 49ers, Lister wants to come to a game and hang out on the sidelines.
Somewhere, Samuel is probably pretty excited about the shoutout from Lister.
