Snoop Dogg has landed the lead role in the comedy sports film The Underdoggs . The film with the American rapper can be seen from next year, Variety reports on Tuesday.
Snoop Dogg plays Jaycen Jenning, a former NFL player who has broken the law. To avoid jail time, the character starts coaching a youth football team.
In any case, the fifty-year-old rapper starts the recordings with sufficient experience. ” The Underdoggs is a personal project as I have been working as a football coach for the Snoop Youth Football League for over 15 years,” Snoop Dogg said in a statement.
The Snoop Youth Football League is an initiative that encourages children to take up sports. Snoop Dogg hopes the film can shed light on the complicated world of football.
The film is set to hit theaters on October 20, 2023.
