However it's not often movie stars turn into professional athletes.
Recently, my buddy Mike gave me this 1997 Upper Deck MLS card of Andrew Shue:
While other might know remember him as Billy Campbell on Melrose Place:
It was during his final years on Melrose that Andrew decided to play professional soccer on the side for the Los Angeles Galaxy. In fact, he actually had one assist in five games as a reserve midfielder.
Actually, Shue isn't the only entertainer to test their skills against pro athletes. Check these guys out...
Tom Selleck: 1992 Upper Deck #SP4 w/Frank Thomas
Bruce Hornsby: 1991 Pro Set SuperStars MusiCards #51
Garth Brooks: 1991 OSU Collegiate Collection #87
Billy Crystal: 2008 TriStar PROJections #400
Four years ago, Crystal signed a one day, minor league contract with the New York Yankees and played in an exhibition game against the Pittsburgh Pirates. He struck out in his only at-bat, but at least he had a "marvelous" time.
Okay... it's your turn to write.
Who's your favorite athlete turned actor... or actor turned athlete?
Happy Thursday everyone and sayonara!
