New York Jets backup quarterback Tim Tebow has been asked to star in a faith-based movie.

Executive Producer David Dginguerian, who produced the movie “Crossroad,” sent a letter to Tebow’s agents inviting him to appear in his next film.

TMZ obtained a copy of the letter that was sent to the William Morris Agency.

“You are an inspiration to so many on the field and off, and I am certain that your passion will also come through in films,” Dginguerian wrote.

The movie offer surfaced just a few weeks after Tebow spoke to a more than 10,000 evangelical Christian students at Liberty University in Lynchburg, Va.

“In the end, football is just a silly game. Greatness comes from serving,” Tebow told the crowd.

There’s no word from Tebow’s reps on the movie offer.

Considering that Tebow’s NFL career is up in the air, his agents might want to give serious thought to it.
