Terrell Owens Has an Itch to Act
NFL wide receiver Terrell Owens, who is currently a free agent, is playing with the idea of having a full-blown acting career -- and would even consider doing a movie with Mel Gibson!
"If he's paying me well, I'd jump right in," the football player laughed with "Extra's" Lauren Sanchez at the 2010 ESPY Awards Wednesday.
Seriously, he wasn't sure if Gibson could bounce back. "I don't know. It's a lot to deal with, especially with a lot of the racial comments and all. Rubs people the wrong way. You know, I just wish him well, hope he can get back on the right track."
So, maybe there isn't a Mel movie in the works, but Owens is starring in an upcoming movie "Dysfunctional Friends," starring Stacey Dash and Stacey Keibler, and has a new VH1 reality show, "The TO Show."
Would Owens ever consider "Dancing with the Stars"? "No! Everyone's been asking me that question. I have my own reality show going on right now, so not enough time to split between the both of them." But he did have some contestant suggestions. "Maybe someone like Lindsay Vonn or Lisa Leslie."
"The TO Show" premiered Sunday, July 11 on VH1. The show airs at 10:30 pm.
