Seahawks' Marshawn Lynch to star in biographical film

Marshawn Lynch will be adding lights and cameras to his action, boss.

The man who generally says little in public is scheduled to star in a biographical movie about growing up in Oakland, titled "Family First."

"Just trying something new," the Seattle Seahawks running back told the San Jose Mercury News.

The movie chronicles Lynch's football life from high school to his time at Cal and NFL career, culminating with last season's Super Bowl championship. The film will focus on his struggles, triumphs and, of course, his family.

The man who spent the Super Bowl not talking plans on letting verbosity reign on the silver screen.

"For me, it's just about having some fun," Lynch said. "It's just a fun experience. I also get to shine light on the community and some of the things that we grew up doing and what we went through."

The PG-13 film is reportedly slated for release at the end of the year.
