He is a man that has gone by many names: Benjamin. Coach. Dragonslayer. Zenslayer. Maestro. Zeus. And now Survivor’s Benjamin Wade can add one more moniker to that list: Thespian. That’s right, Coach will be making his feature film debut playing a hedonistic rock star trying to rekindle past glory in the new independent movie 180, which will be released for digital download Feb. 21 via iTunes, YouTube Movies, and CinemaNow. And Coach is not the only Survivor veteran to appear in 180. Danielle DiLorenzo (Survivor: Panama and Survivor: Heroes vs. Villains) also stars in the film as Coach’s manager as well as former (and possibly future) love interest. Now, if all of this is not making your brain explode already, try this on for size: We’ve got your first taste of the aforementioned delicious delight right here and right now, with an exclusive scene from the film.
In the scene, Coach (playing rocker Gavin Larson) is practicing for the first time with his new band the Janitors, when all of a sudden a pop-up music video from his 1990s band the Zebras comes on the TV screen. One problem: The rest of the Zebras died in a fiery plane crash. This makes Coach sad. To see Coach rocking out in not one but TWO different bands, just click on the video player below. And then click on it again because I’m not sure you can keep yourself from watching it at least twice.
