For a while it seemed like half the shows on TV had former NFL defensive linemen as stars.
Bobby Riggs did an Odd Couple cameo, too.
Deacon Jones was on "The Odd Couple." You'd think they would have had more sports stars on that show, but he's the only one I can think of, aside from Howard Cosell.
and Ty Cobb would have made a great cameo somewhere.
Ben Davidson was a regular on "Ball Four."
John Matuszak should have received an Academy award for his performance as "Sloth" in Goonies.
sorry--screwed that up--just you tube search Whats My line Ted Williams, Stan Musial, Duke Snider, Jimmy Piersall,Willie Mays, and many more
Jim Plunkett was on an episode as an Eskimo quarterback who was discovered by Oscar and then asked him to be his agent. Lot of jokes about turnig the thermostat down.
As did Jim Bouton himself; of course, Bouton also had a decent sized role as Terry Lennox in Robert Altman's "The Long Goodbye".
Add Bubba Smith to the defensive line "actors".
Hm. I sure don't remember that, and there's nothing on the IMDB like that, although I am impressed by the specificity of your recall. Was it possibly a different show? I do remember the great Jack Soo as the Chinese wrestler Chuck Chin.
Alex English had a starring role in a movie "Amazing Grace and Chuck."
