DRAFT DAY Interviews With Kevin Costner, Arian Foster, Terry Crews, Jennifer Garner, More
Five months before the NFL season officially begins, the Cleveland Browns are in the spotlight on April 11th when Draft Day hits theaters. Not only was it filmed here in Cleveland last summer (without the Shoreway being shutdown might I add) it is all about our Brownies and the lead up to the ever important draft day. Kevin Costner plays Sonny Weaver Jr., the fictional Browns GM who is under a lot of pressure to shake things up with the franchise and in a story line that feels all too real, he has to turn the team’s losing record around.
Summit Entertainment invited me to fly to Los Angeles to chat with the cast, and they couldn’t have been nicer. Kevin Costner talked about what he loved about Cleveland and a funny thing that happened to him at an Indians game. Houston Texans running back Arian Foster (who plays a Cleveland Brown in the film) discussed the reaction from Texans fans when he was photographed wearing a Browns jersey and also talked about his former teammate Ben Tate playing for the Browns. Terry Crews jokes that his only highlight in the NFL was “getting knocked out on Monday Night Football” and tells us who he thinks the Browns should draft this year.
