Patriots quarterback Tom Brady, who has drawn a lot of notoriety this week after the release of his “Funny or Die” video short, might not be ready to give up the acting bug.
Brady portrayed an annoyed version of himself -- who was mistaken for someone with a Boston accent -- in the film, which also served as an advertisement for Under Armour, with which Brady has an endorsement contract. And Brady, who dabbled in acting during a stint as a guest host of “Saturday Night Live” in 2005, said he would welcome a chance to go back on the show.
“That was a great experience,” he said in an appearance on WEEI’s Dennis and Callahan show. “Like a lot of things, you go through them and you don’t appreciate them until they’re over. And that was one of those experiences where I loved doing it and but then really realized how much I loved doing it after it was over. And I wish I just took in every single moment of that because it is so unique and you never know if you’re going to get those experiences again.”
Brady drew laughs in the “Funny or Die” skit with his dead-pan angry expression, and he said it wasn’t too hard an act to pull off.
“It’s not like Tom Hanks in ‘Castaway,’” Brady said. “It’s not like I’m playing a dramatic role or something. It’s pretty much being me, so it was fun.
