One of the league's most overexposed luminaries last offseason, the New York Giants receiver is doubling down this time around with a venture into network television.
The sudden thespian is set to make his dramatic acting debut Feb. 10 on the CBS medical drama "Code Black."
ESPN.com's Dan Graziano provided the synopsis for this must-watch event, which features Beau Bridges as Beckham's high school football coach, Pete Delaney:
"While headed to a Valentine's Day charity luncheon where Beckham is being honored, Pete suffers severe abdominal pain and his concerned daughter, Mia, brings him to Angels Memorial Hospital. Beckham later arrives in the Emergency Room to convince his stubborn high school football coach to have surgery that will save his life."
It's amazing to think that the human race will be treated to both a Beckham acting role AND the Pro Bowl within mere weeks. Like you, I'll describe this epic time in history to my grandchildren and anyone else willing to listen.
