    For best cameo role, I go with Lawrence Taylor in The Waterboy.

    Actually, LT acted surprisingly well in Any Given Sunday.

    Gotta go with Roman Gabriel as a cherokee (Blue Boy) adopted by John Wayne The Undefeated (1969). Merlin Olsen, Rock Hudson and Lee Merriweather were also in that one.

    I thought he was the worst part in what was an otherwise surprisingly funny movie...
  6. And Ragu is right again.
    That scene in the locker room was actual acting.
    I liked Terry Bradshaw in Hooper, too.
  7. I'll admit, it's one of my favorite sports movies of all time, probably because of my absolute abject fear of nuclear war (Thank you, mom, for letting me watch 'The Day After' when i was 9, I'm still scared shitless) and my love for the always underappreciated Alex English.

    And hey, it had Gregory Peck and William Peterson and I think Jamie Lee Curtis as the agent.

    And I think the football teams across the country stole that putting four fingers for the fourth quarter from the movie. Remember, Amazing's thing was '3'.
    Ironic, however, considering English wasn't a great 3-point shooter but one of the best mid-range shooters ever.

    That is all.

    Bradshaw and Mel Tillis made a great team in the first Cannonball Run movie. Remember when they were packing up their stock car with case after case of beer and, for food, a single bag of pork rinds? Too bad they got busted before the finish.

    Terry greatest acting job was when he played himself in Smokey and the Bandit II -- Bootleggin' Boogaloo.
