Football players take snap at small screen role


WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — Hollywood East got down and dirty today at Legion Stadium as football players became aspiring actors and went long to snag a spot on a TV pilot shooting in Wilmington.

Two-a-days and a real coach are what these football players can expect if cast for the CBS pilot that did have the working title “The Red Zone,” but is now known as “Untitled Nikki Tuscano Project.”

Trae Haskins says this is his first time auditioning for any show, so he made sure to put his best cleat forward.

“I’ve never done any extra work, so this is going to be my first time to even do anything like that,” Haskins said. “Plus, I haven’t done anything football related in about eight months, so I was excited about that, too. Just the fact that I put my cleats on kind of got me excited as well.”

Haskins says this is a great opportunity and just hopes he does not get cut from the team.

There are about 30 to 40 spots available on the TV team.
