Brett Favre – There’s Something About Mary:
Favre made a cringe-worthy guest appearance in the over-the-top comedy “There’s Something About Mary.” He played himself. The joke was that he, as himself, was one of many potential suitors of title character Mary, played by Cameron Diaz. Favre played her ex-boyfriend.
Antagonist Ben Stiller ended up setting Favre back up with Mary, but the acting job turned in by the all-time great quarterback was, like many athletes’ acting, robotic. Favre is a true NFL legend who owned many records at the time of his retirement. His skills just didn’t translate to acting.
