Rob Gronkowski Lands Role in Comedy The Clapper
After dazzling audiences with his acting acumen in the Entourage movie, Rob Gronkowski is heading back to the big screen.
According to Deadline, the New England Patriots tight end will have a role in the upcoming comedy The Clapper. Gronk joins a star-studded cast for the flick, including Ed Helms, Tracy Morgan, Amanda Seyfried, Russell Peters, and Maroon 5 frontman Adam Levine.
Much like his appearance in the Entourage movie, the Super Bowl-winning football star will play himself during his cameo in The Clapper.
In addition to Gronk, the film will feature cameos by Victoria’s Secret model Sara Sampaio as well as Shark Tank star and Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban, who will also be playing themselves in the movie.
The Clapper, based on the book by writer and director Dito Montiel, follows the story Eddie Krumble (Helms), a professional informercial clapper who finds his 15 minutes of fame when a late-night television host decides to have him on his talk show. However, things go south for Krumble after his appearance.
While details are still under wraps as to how Gronk factors into the film, it wouldn’t be a big surprise if he played a fellow guest on the late-night show, since he’s got plenty of experience doing that in real life.
