Don’t look now, but Kansas City Chiefs QB Matt Cassel has some legitimate acting chops.
Along with San Francisco 49ers LB Patrick Willis and stars from several other sports, Cassel appears in the latest K-Swiss commercial featuring Eastbound And Down’s “Kenny Powers”, played by Danny McBride.
In the spot, Cassel serves as the Chief (not Chiefs) Marketing Officer and introduces his tag line for K-Swiss Tubes: “Shut Up And Buy Them”. He also does calisthenics with Willis while being yelled at by Powers.
It’s safe to say that if the lockout lingers on, Cassel could start taking roles as a character actor in Hollywood.
