Tom Brady ventured into the realm of acting during an episode of his Let’s Go! podcast, where he welcomed Denzel Washington as a guest.
The two legendary figures delved into their respective crafts, with a notable intersection occurring when Washington portrayed football coach Herman Boone in Remember The Titans—a movie released in September 2000, just as Brady was beginning his NFL career.
During the podcast, Washington and Brady engaged in a table read of an iconic scene from the movie. Brady took on the role of Petey Jones, with Washington expertly reprising his famous role, questioning Brady’s character for finding football “fun.”
Brady shared a condensed version of the exchange on social media, showcasing the entertaining collaboration between the two.
While Washington effortlessly slipped back into his renowned acting prowess, it appears Brady might not be poised for a Hollywood transition just yet. However, Brady has already tested the waters with his appearance in 80 for Brady.
When Jim Gray inquired if Washington would make Brady reenact the lines on set, Washington humorously responded that he’d need to review the footage. Brady playfully suggested that Washington channel his inner Bill Belichick to coach him, sparking a conversation about the former New England Patriots head coach.
Brady expressed that he still maintains a “great relationship” with Belichick, drawing parallels between football and acting. He highlighted the collaborative effort required in both fields, emphasizing the need for a well-crafted script, precise direction, effective editing, fitting scoring, strategic marketing, and timely release.
While Brady has plans to join the Fox broadcasting team next year, the possibility of the retired quarterback exploring another new profession remains intriguing.
