Just a reminder that Dubsism and I are hosting a “Box Office Jocks” Blog-a-Thon. Entries will be posted this Super Bowl weekend (February 2 and 3, 2019).
This blog-a-thon is all about movies featuring actors who used to be athletes at the college, Olympic, or professional level, OR movies in which a famous athlete appears. It is NOT about movies which have a sports-related theme. This is about actors who once were jocks, or big-time jocks who make cameos.
Please let me know if you would like to submit a blog article, or podcast for this event.
You can email me at Returnto80s@gmail.com. If you send me something after this weekend, I can add it. So, don’t be shy.
Some possible actors include (but certainly aren’t limited to) John Wayne, Kirk Douglas, Buster Crabbe, Johnny Weissmuller, Esther Williams, Sonja Heine, up through people like Beau Bridges, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, or the recently departed Burt Reynolds. Also, these do not need to be 80s movies.
Here are some places where you can look up other actors/movies if you don’t want to cover any of the actors listed above:
Actors who once were College or Olympic athletes:
Pro athletes who either made cameo appearance or became “straight-up” actors:
