Jason Taylor’s Agent Has Experience With NFL-to-Hollywood Transitions
The Reliable Source reported today that Jason Taylor, the latest in a long line of players to fleece the Redskins and quickly flee since Dan Snyder bought the team, has stepped up his move toward the show biz.
The piece mentioned that Taylor's football agent is Gary Wichard.
Wichard, when he was an unknown, represented Brian Bosworth.
The Boz was one of the great college linebackers of all time at Oklahoma, though his NFL career is regarded as a titanic flop—it should be pointed out, however, that Bosworth had four sacks in his rookie season in 1987, more than Taylor did in his one year with the Skins.
After leaving football, with Wichard's help, in 1991 Bosworth quickly jumped to the Big Screen as a leading man in Stone Cold.
Critics hated the lowbrow thriller. Me and my brother loved the movie and Bosworth's performance, and occasionally still drop some of "John Stone"'s lines into our conversations.
Check out Stone Cold's opening for yourself:
Bosworth got very little screen work after this.
Good luck, Jason Taylor.
