Tim Tebow’s current professional endeavor has gotten plenty of attention, but maybe his next career move will create even more headlines.
This week on The MMQB podcast with Tim Rohan, the former Florida quarterback and current minor league baseball player said he loves the movie “Braveheart.” He loves it so much, he joked that he would love the opportunity to play a role in a sequel.
“I love Braveheart, it’s the best movie,” Tebow said. “If they made a Braveheart 2 and asked me to be in it…wait a minute, let me think about it for a second, I’d say yes.”
Tebow said he couldn’t get enough of the Mel Gibson film when he was younger. He watched the movie for the first time when he was 8 years old (which might be a little young) with his father and two brothers.
“I loved the movie and loved how much (William Wallace) was willing to sacrifice, what he believed in, why he believed in it, and then I also loved the action. Mel Gibson was pretty sweet too,” Tebow said. “I just loved it. And I think just that (seeing it) with my dad made it really special for me. I’ve probably seen the movie 50 times.”
There are no reports of a Braveheart sequel coming any time soon, and Tebow seems pretty busy with his current jobs with the Columbia Fireflies and ESPN. But if Tebow ever got such an opportunity, plenty of fans would flock to theaters to see it.
Tebow also talked on the podcast about why he left football, saying he “love(s) playing the quarterback position” and didn’t want to change positions.
