Tom Brady has movie star looks -- and apparently he's ready to apply those assets literally.
In an interview with ESPN's Bill Simmons, Mark Wahlberg revealed that he convinced Brady to appear in two upcoming movies that Wahlberg himself is involved in. The first, Ted 2, is a sequel to a hit comedy Wahlberg stars in.
Wahlberg told Simmons that Brady "killed it" in his performance. Brady was appearing in the movie as himself, and the two improvised several interactions in which Wahlberg's character is overwhelmed to meet Brady and tries to play it cool -- but fails, of course.
"There were moments where I was always improvising when doing the scene with him," Wahlberg says. "There are times I’m supposed to be a super fan, so I’m trying to calm myself down before I knock on his door. But I’m pretending that I don’t know who he is. I keep saying he looks like different people.
"Then of course, I’m playing an air conditioning guy, so I'm asking him to sign the paper, and I ask him if he can sign that to me and Ted and put No. 12 there, and can you put 'Eli Manning sucks.' And can you put 'Wes Welker is a traitor,' and we keep playing around and playing around. I’m staring at his eyes, and I’m like, 'Oh my God, they’re bluer than Daytona Beach on MTV Spring Break.'"

Wahlberg also said Brady, along with Patriots teammates Rob Gronkowski, Stevan Ridley and Julian Edelman, will also appear in the upcoming 'Entourage' movie. Both movies are slated for a summer 2015 release.
