Super Bowl XLVIII: Randall Cobb rocks Broadway, plus other suggestions for the versatile WR [PHOTOS, VIDEO]
There’s Packers wide receiver Randall Cobb in full “Rock of Ages” garb, his one-night Broadway career (for now) ending with three lines and a new appreciation for the stage.
The NFL is trying to use many of the potential venues New York City has to offer as the weird host-but-not-really, since news flash: the game will actually be played in New Jersey, of the Super Bowl. And Cobb has been active during Super Bowl XLVIII week. Along with his Broadway number, he appeared on the “Today” show on NBC for Characters United, an anti-bullying charity, and will also be at the NFL Honors awards show Saturday night, as he and Aaron Rodgers are nominated for the GMC Never Say Never moment of the year award for their game-winning touchdown on fourth down against the Chicago Bears, the one that captured the NFC North title.
In this quick video, Cobb talks about his “Rock of Ages” experience with SI.com on Wednesday.
Additionally, former Packers running back Ahman Green’s Broadway debut is set for Saturday afternoon.
The Packers have television commercials covered, we all know this. But as we noted earlier this week, Cobb is solidifying his role as the team’s most versatile performer in a big way. But there’s always other stuff to do, right? Right. So with that in mind, here’s an incomplete list of other things we’d offer to Cobb for consideration in the future, along with, you know, being the most dangerous slot man, deep threat, returner, guy-out-of-the-backfield-that’s-not-Eddie-Lacy, as well as second-best team photobomber, in Green Bay:
– Tundra Line drummer.
– “Jump” remix.
– Television cameo on either Fox’s “The Following” or another show of equal or lesser comedic value. (Important note: there is no show with greater.)
– Starting point guard, Milwaukee Bucks.
– Sportsman on the Discovery Channel, sponsored by Cabela’s. Every 30-minute episode consists of tense tracking and pursuit before Cobb eventually kills a bear in the final seconds with his last shot while being filmed on the last morsel of the camera’s nearly-dead battery life.
– Bar league softball umpire.
– Guest spot as The Guy Who Is Dating Someone in Kevin Hart’s 1,458th movie of 2014.
– Chili and/or booyah cook-off participant.
