Not since movie character stars like S.Z. ‘Cuddles’ Sakall or even John Goodman has there been quite the big star character actor like Rex Ryan.
Fans may hope that Hollywood calls soon with a fistful of dollars and supervillain scripts, and that Ryan realizes his true calling is on the big screen. He should give up that stressful day job as a New York Jets coach in the NFL.
He could provide more entertainment playing the next James Bond villain, giving Daniel Craig a run for his Ferrari.
Ryan is making a Hollywood splash again, bigger than Fatty Arbuckle. He is acting up a storm in the new Adam Sandler movie. His thespian skills can be called remarkable as he plays both a lawyer and a New England Patriot fan.
Such method acting has not been seen since Marlon Brando stuffed his cheeks with Kleenex in The Godfather to achieve the effect that Rex Ryan gives naturally.
Ryan comes with his own personal body double for the heavy lifting parts of the role...
