Taylor’s recent Funny or Die skit is discussed in this Washington City Paper article about the NFL Lockout.
Twenty NFL players partnered with the humor site Funny or Die to create “Field of Dreams 2: The NFL Lockout.” The video featured Taylor Lautner from the Twilight movies as a farmer who builds a football gridiron in an Iowacornfield. Tony Gonzalez of the Atlanta Falcons, Ray Lewis of the Baltimore Ravens and Shawne Merriman of the Buffalo Bills are among players with speaking roles. Ray Liotta, who starred in Field of Dreams, plays NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell; Kevin Costner makes a cameo at the end of the video. Funny or Die says the video, which debuted on ESPN’s SportsCenter and was posted on numerous sports blogs, was its biggest production yet.
