    Looking at the latest PEYTON ON SUNDAY Morning Commercial
    I thought to my self. . . . .

    A sitcom about Peyton's post football life would probably be funnier
    and more interesting than the New Kevin James sitcom

    What professional athlete has made the best transistion to acting

    The Rock doesn't count cause he was only a college Athlete and
    WWE is not a real sport. . . .

    OJ should have earned an academy award for his "gloves don't fit" scene.

    He played in the CFL. So my vote goes to The Rock.

    WWE may not be a 'real sport,' but I would definitely consider them professional athletes. Those giant dudes can do some crazy ****.

    Andre the Giant portrayed a giant who portrayed the dread pirate Roberts.

    Jason Lee was a pro skateboarder. Arnold's probably been in the biggest movies.

    Gonna go with Jim Brown.

    It's scary to say it, but it might be Rock. That dude is believable and honest on camera. I don't think he stretched himself, but neither has anyone else. Arnold is very good too in terms of having a good sense of timing and the one liner is still used in just about every movie, so if he did coin that, kudo. Burt Reynolds can obviously carry a movie as well. It's kinda crazy that nobody has really gone to Oscar level after all these years. I respect Carl Weathers work though because he walked the line of villain and likeable, which is tough to do.
