Haute 100 SF: Colin Kaepernick Plays Al Pacino in ‘Madden: The Movie’


EA Sports has tapped Haute 100 lister Colin Kaepernick to star in Madden: The Movie for the upcoming Madden NFL 16.

Kaepernick, who plays Al Pacino in Scent of a Woman, is joined by New England Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski, who plays Half Top; Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Antonio Brown as Sticky Buns; Atlanta Falcons wide receiver Julio Jones, who plays Trick Montalban; Buffalo Bills Coach Rex Ryan, who plays Lil’ Pepper as well as Dave Franco and Christopher Mintz-Plasse, better known as McLovin from Superbad. In the trailer, the team, noted as the team of “Playmakers” band together to take down an evil boss in a game of Madden.

In Madden NFL 16 and for the first time ever in franchise history, “gamers will be able to experience true two-player catch interactions as offensive and defensive players make their best attempt to secure the pigskin,” according to EA Sports. The sports video game company continues, “Receivers and defenders can now dictate the outcome of each passing play while the ball is in the air. For receivers, go for the highlight reel with the “aggressive” catch, pick up extra yards with “run after catch,” or move the chains with the “possession” catch. On defense, disrupt the outcome of each play using the new “play ball’ and “hit receiver” mechanics.”

The trailer is part of the marketing campaign to build momentum for the highly anticipated game. The game is currently available for pre-order. Madden NFL 16 officially hit stores tomorrow, Aug. 25th.

Most recently the 27-year-old quarterback addressed the media, where he discussed the development of his third wide receiver, Torrey Smith’s speed, as well as his offensive line.

In regards to the preseason game, Kaepernick said, “I think there was a lot of good things that happened for us in that game. Also things that we need to clean up and get better at. Looking forward to this week. Hopefully being out there a little longer and being able to get in a rhythm with our offense.”
