Mayock: Mock Draft
The movie stars Kevin Costner as Cleveland Browns general manager Sonny Weaver, who's charged with saving football in the city by trading for the No. 1 overall pick in the draft.
Foster, who had a role in "Hawaii 5-0" on CBS earlier in the year, is taking the part seriously. In an effort to appear younger, he shaved his beard.
The film cameo won't make up for Foster's draft-day snub, which happened in part because the tailback's critical thinking and non-conformity led Volunteers coaches to rip him in discussions with NFL coaches and executives. He can sleep soundly, though, with his Screen Actors Guild card and a $43.5 million contract from the Texans.
