I don’t know why Jay Cutler is my favorite NFL player; probably because I like the challenge of trying to find color in a person who is grey drab all the time. But Jay Cutler being funny? Well, he’s obviously not known for that, but we’re willing to give it a try.
Cutty will be on a tv show about fantasy football when the Chicago Bears quarterback guest stars in an upcoming episode this September. Jay Cutler flew to Los Angeles earlier this month to tape an episode of “The League,” a sitcom set in Chicago and the posh upscale suburb of Winnetka.
Jay Cutler shows some congeniality and acting skills in his NFL merchandise ad with Roberto Garza. However, that’s a side we rarely ever see. The journalists and publicists I know that claim to know him best say he’s generally a good dude, and a nice guy. But that personality just doesn’t come across to fans and media in the way that Jay brands himself. With the Smokin’ Jay Cutler memes, his ugly Bill Cosby sweater in the Google Hangout, the “don’t care” bathroom incident, the pictures of Cutty in ’80s outfits etc. Bears and media alike have done a lot to make Cutler as interesting as possible.
We’ll see how he does in this tv show.
