Rex Ryan to Play New England Patriots Fan in Movie

Rex Ryan got some on camera experience earlier this year as a guest star on CBS' CSI. He has apparently parlayed this into an unlikely role in an Adam Sandler movie.

In an upcoming Adam Sandler movie called "I hate you, Dad," due out in 2012, Rex Ryan makes a cameo appearance as a Boston-based lawyer and big-time New England Patriots fan.

"I'm not going to make a guarantee that there's an Oscar coming, but (Robert) De Niro, Ryan, I don't know, you'll have to see the movie and see what you think," Ryan said.

I expect this to be very, very entertaining and for it to make Patriots fans very, very angry if his character is at all a stereotype.

Having the sense of humor to take on a role like this is a reason you have to love Rex. As much as he talks, everything he does is in good fun.
