'Draft Day' Super Bowl clip: Kevin Costner is about to rebuild the Browns
The Cleveland Browns have never reached the Super Bowl, but they’ll pop up on television this Sunday during the commercial teaser for Draft Day, the Kevin Costner movie that hopes to be football’s version of Moneyball. The sports-movie icon plays Sonny Weaver Jr., the embattled general manager of the mediocre Browns, who have an opportunity to trade up for the No. 1 pick.
Jennifer Garner plays the team’s salary-cap guru — and Sonny’s girlfriend — Denis Leary is a coach somewhat modeled after Barry Switzer, and Frank Langella is the team’s spotlight-hungry owner. Ivan Reitman directed the movie from a Black List script written by Scott Rothman and Rajiv Joseph.
The movies arrives in theaters April 11. Watch the Super Bowl clip below:
