Jets' Ryan in Sandler movie as - gasp! - Pats fan

November 4th, 2011 in News

NEW YORK (AP) - Rex Ryan is teaming up with Adam Sandler for a new movie in which the Jets coach plays - get ready for this - a New England Patriots fan.

Sandler told NFL Network's Rich Eisen for his podcast Thursday that Ryan is a Boston-based "inexpensive" lawyer in the still untitled movie. Sandler says Ryan was "loose and funny" about playing "a mammoth Patriots fan" who talks about Bill Belichick and Tom Brady - a detail that was written into the script for the Jets coach.

That's sure to be a shocking sight for Jets fans.

Sandler, whose upcoming movie "Jack and Jill" will be in theaters on Nov. 11, is an avid Jets fan who has attended several games, and says Ryan is "really cool" and "nailed" the part.
