Matthew Stafford | Matthew Stafford Would Draft Leonardo DiCaprio to Play Him in a Movie

NFL star Matthew Stafford wants Leonardo Dicaprio to play him in a movie.

The LA Rams quarterback – who will play in the Super Bowl on Sunday (13.02.22) – would love to cast the Hollywood actor in a movie to play him because he’s a “special actor”.

He said: “That’s a great question, I have no idea. I’ll say Leonardo DiCaprio.

“He’s one of my favorites. Leading actor, special actor.”

Stafford admitted he wasn’t sure about DiCaprio’s throwing quality – a vital attribute for a quarterback – but thinks the film’s special effects could step in to fix that if it were to be an issue.

He added to Access Hollywood: “I don’t know how he throws the football, but [with] modern technology, I’m sure we can make it look good.”

Last month, the American football star’s wife, Kelly Stafford, recounted how DiCaprio licked the ear of Sarah Ryan – the wife of Atlanta Falcons quarterback Matt Ryan – when the Staffords and Ryan met the actor while on vacation.

Speaking about playing the Picolo drinking game, Kelly said: “As the game goes on the challenges get, I would say, a little dirtier.

“So we get to this point – and we’re all hammered – Leo picks up the phone and he says, ‘Leo, lick Sarah’s ear four times or take six sips. My eyes just get huge Why can’t my name be Sarah?

“He gets up quickly and slowly walks over to Sarah and I look at Sarah like, ‘Holy shit. Holy shit.’

“He crouches slowly… and goes right after Sarah’s ear and I’m like, ‘God, I wish I had filmed that so we have video evidence. “

Stafford was instrumental in securing the Rams a Super Bowl spot at their own SoFi Stadium in Los Angeles, where they will face the Cincinnati Bengals this weekend.

He joined the Rams last year after being traded from the Detroit Lions, who selected him first in the 2009 NFL Draft.
