Former NFL quarterback Jake Plummer will once again wear protective gear and a helmet to play the role of a Canadian Football League quarterback in an upcoming Canadian film.
According to John Hodge of 3DownNation.com, Plummer has signed on to play the flagman for the Hamilton Tiger-Cats in the film Coup.
“It’s a cool scenario,” Plummer said. “It’s really good to present a league that doesn’t get a lot of respect for the amount of football that goes into it and the history behind the CFL, which is a very rich history there in Canada.
Plummer, 46, played 10 full seasons in the NFL with the Arizona Cardinals and Denver Broncos. He last played football with the Broncos in 2006.
Plummer recently served as an extra in a movie starring one of his former Arizona State college teammates Isaiah Mustafa, which was his first acting gig.
“He’s been trying to train me in certain things for a while now and I’ve finally opened up to that,” Plummer said. “I walked through that door and looked at what happened – the opportunity to do something that could be a lot of fun that I can add my energy and my passion to. “
