Already a fixture on the little screen every Sunday during football season, it seems Rob Gronkowski has his sights set on the big screen. According to TMZ, the Patriots tight end has signed on to play himself in the upcoming “Entourage” movie, which begins filming in January. Patriots fans are hoping for a deep playoff run then, which might force Gronkowski to delay his appearance.
