Here’s an inspirational sports story for you armchair quarterbacks out there, dreaming of gridiron glory from behind your bags of Doritos: Mark Wahlberg takes on the role of real-life zero-to-hero Vince Papale, a substitute teacher and part-time bartender who was plucked out of obscurity at an open tryout for the Philadelphia Eagles and won a spot on the team in 1976 as a wide receiver. ”People thought it was a joke, a publicity stunt,” says Wahlberg. ”This guy had never played college football a day in his life. He was just a f—ing amazing athlete, and he became the heart and soul of the team.”
