Has it ever worked out?
Here are a few that come to mind:
Brian Bosworth...are you kidding me. Miserable failure in the NFL. Miserable failure in Hollywood. Whose idea was it to try to make an actor out of him?
Jim Brown...dude could run the football...dude can't act. Didn't work out, IMO.
Shaq...the movie thing...the rapping thing...all-around bad ideas.
Dick Butkus. What was the sitcom he was on? Was he a regular on something? I can't remember for sure...I just remember him being bad.
Any others come to mind?
