Like so many other athletes whose physical skills are beginning to erode, veteran NFL safety Darren Sharper apparently wants to stay in the spotlight after he retires via one of the various seemingly money-for-nothing professions.
And like so many other athletes who believe that good looks and a marginally recognizable name is all it takes to become an actor, Sharper appears to be interested in acting.
Per the New Orleans Times-Picayune, Sharper stars in a short feature posted today at WorkingBug.com.
The frenetically-edited segment comes off as a rejected-at-first-draft SNL skit, with Sharper as a man who suffers from “I.S.O.H.,” otherwise known as “Inappropriate Sense of Humor.” It’s hard to tell whether Sharper has any actual acting talent, because the writing is so damn bad — and because the premise is downright unfunny.
But, hey, if you’re interested in seeing an NFL player delivering a few objectively offensive jokes, wearing panties on his head, drawing a penis on a painting, and eventually humping a dog, you should check it out.
Fortunately, the experience ends in less than six minutes.
