Terry Bradshaw – Hooper
NFL legend Bradshaw dipped his feet into the acting world after he retired. He mostly made cameos as himself before he finally took a proper role in 1978’s Hooper. He starred opposite Burt Reynolds but nobody was talking about him winning Oscars after. It didn’t get good reviews and made him look ridiculous.
However, Bradshaw admitted that he didn’t treat acting like it was important. His biography says (via Rotten Tomatoes): “Like most other things in my life other than family, football, and my ranch, I didn’t really take it very seriously. The opportunity was offered to me because of my football popularity, and I accepted it.”
