Rex Ryan to Play Patriots Fan in Adam Sandler Movie “Donny Boy”

Rex Ryan (TYSON TRISH/NorthJersey.com)

If I say “Adam Sandler movies,” what comes to mind? Billy Madison? Happy Gilmore? Waterboy? The Wedding Singer? Big Daddy? Many of these movies were hilarious. But, the other common attribute these movies share is that they were released in the 90′s. All of them.

Notable movies since? Little Nicky (ugh). Mr. Deeds (meh). The Longest Yard (double ugh). Funny People (such a disappointment). Let us not forget his new release, Jack and Jill, staring Adam Sandler as Jack, and Adam Sandler as Jill. Sandler, you’re not Eddie Murphy or Tyler Perry, and you never will be.

But, in Sandler’s latest flick currently slated to come out in 2012, “Donny Boy” (which was filmed in Massachusetts), there may be a few reasons to watch. First, it was filmed in the Bay State, so any of you Massachusetts natives may enjoy the setting. You also may enjoy that Jets coach Rex Ryan will play a Boston lawyer and Patriots fan in the film.

(Way to bury the lead…)

That’s right, Sexy Rexy must have some good acting skills, as he will portray a diehard Patriots fan! Can you imagine Tom Brady portraying Fireman Ed in a film? Neither can I.

“I’m not going to make a guarantee that there’s an Oscar coming, but [Robert] De Niro, Ryan, I don’t know, you’ll have to see the movie and see what you think,” Ryan said on Friday,¬†according to The Star-Ledger.

Sandler will play Andy Samberg’s grouchy father in the film, which also features¬†Leighton Meester, Vanilla Ice, and Susan Sarandon.
