Marshawn Lynch to star in a movie about Marshawn Lynch

Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch may not be a fan of media attention, but he’s going to step in front of the camera to play himself in a movie called “Family First.”

The San Jose Mercury News has the details of the film here.

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

This won’t be the big-screen debut for Lynch, who played small role (the part of “Massive Goon” in the 2013 film “Matt’s Chance.”

I'm more than ready to play myself," Lynch said with a laugh. "I got the acting bug when I played a small role in Matt's Chance starring Gary Busey.I definitely want to expand my opportunities after football. I've also been on a couple TV shows, so I'm not nervous."
