From time to time, former NFL linebacker Brian Bosworth resurfaces. He became an actor once his playing days ended, appearing in only a smattering of roles since 2005′s The Longest Yard.
He’s now starring in the Revelation Road series, and he says the religious films made him once again a religious man. Previously, Bosworth had a feud with God.
“It’s not that I didn’t know God or didn’t have a relationship or an understanding of God,” Bosworth told FOX News. ”I knew the Lord, I just hated him. There was a feud and a grudge match because I felt He broke a promise we had and broke my trust. I would choose to ignore Him. ’The Boz’ was born, my pride became more than my agreement with God. That was me telling Him I didn’t need Him anymore, and being boastful of all the gifts I had. You have to be humble and ask Him for courage and wisdom, but I put me first and God last. I allowed people to guide me and my arrogance. [I used] my ignorance to play through the pain and getting a call that my career was over started my feud with God.”
At least Bosworth decided when launching a feud to punch up. Even if he was risking being permanently sent, well, down.
Meanwhile, Bosworth didn’t exactly provide a ringing endorsement of his acting skills.
“I never wanted to be an actor,” Bosworth said. ”It was always my agent’s dream. My dream was to play football and it’s what God gave me the talents to do, but I screwed that up. I didn’t know how to act really, and no one wants to do something they don’t have a passion or training for. . . . ‘Revelation Road’ is my movie and the rest were ‘Boz’ movies. I have made some horrible movies and I don’t know if I will do another movie, but I am so grateful that this one came.”
It’s unknown how grateful audiences have been for either installment of the Revelation Road series. But you’ve now at least heard of it, which is probably more than you could say before reading this.
