Former NFL quarterback Jake Plummer is going to put on pads and a helmet once again to play the role of a Canadian Football League quarterback in an upcoming Canadian film.
According to John Hodge of 3DownNation.com, Plummer has signed on to play the part of a signal-caller for the Hamilton Tiger-Cats in the film Kick.
“It’s a cool script,” Plummer said. “It’s really neat to be showcasing a league that doesn’t get a lot of respect for the amount of football that’s gone into it and the history behind the CFL, which is a really rich history up there in Canada.”
Plummer recently served as an extra in a movie featuring one of his former college teammates at Arizona State, Isaiah Mustafa, which was his first acting gig.
“He’s been trying to pull me into a few things for a while now and I finally opened up to it,” said Plummer. “I went through that one door and look what happened — the opportunity to do something that could be a lot of fun that I can add my energy and passion to.”
