At least someone is interested in giving Colin Kaepernick a job.
The free agent NFL quarterback is currently out of a job after NFL owners have made it clear that they aren’t willing to sign the 29-year old after he started a movement last season during the national anthem.
While the NFL is currently blackballing him, Kaepernick is getting some interest from Hollywood.
According to TMZ, one well known casting director is looking for Kaepernick so he can appear in an upcoming project:
Colin Kaepernick has been out of a job for nearly a year, but his resume still looks appealing … to Hollywood!
A well-known casting director posted on a message board for managers and agents last week, asking for someone representing the former NFL quarterback to contact her.
The casting director is currently working on a TV pilot and — more notably — the Pepsi commercial-inspired movie “Uncle Drew” starring Kyrie Irving, Lil Rel Howery, Nick Kroll and sports legends like Shaq, Reggie Miller, Chris Webber and Lisa Leslie.
It’s unclear the role for which the casting director is eyeing Kaepernick, but a cameo in “Uncle Drew” seems like a good fit. If it works out … it would be Colin’s first acting gig.
Kaepernick currently has a grievance filed against the NFL, that alleges owners have colluded to keep him out of the NFL.
