New York Giants safety Jabrill Peppers puts together a fake but hilarious audition to be in the new movie “21 Bridges.”
This week, Peppers put together a fake, hilarious audition to be the main character in the new movie “21 Bridges.” In a paid partnership-based Instagram post with Ace Media Co., Peppers tried to reenact the lines said by Chadwick Boseman, who plays the main character, Andre Davis. He didn’t exactly record all the lines correctly, which made for some comical content.
“21 Bridges” will premiere in theatres this Friday, Nov. 22. Peppers won’t get this part, but don’t rule out a Hollywood career at some point for the 24-year-old. You never know what could happen.
This is Peppers’ first season with the Giants. He was acquired back in March via trade, one that sent Odell Beckham Jr. to the Cleveland Browns. Cleveland originally drafted Peppers in the first round (No. 25 overall) of the 2017 NFL Draft. Peppers spent his first two years with the Browns as a safety and return specialist.
Peppers has started in all 10 games for the Giants this year. In that span of time, he’s racked up 71 combined tackles (second-most on the team), four tackles-for-loss, two quarterback hits, three forced fumbles, one interception (one pick-six), and five passes defended. He hasn’t spent as much time as a return specialist, however. Peppers only has three punt returns on the year for a total of nine yards.
