Prankster Caught Attempting to Board Plane With England's World Cup Team
Actor and noted prankster Simon Brodkin was caught on Sunday trying to board a flight to Miami with England's World Cup team. Brodkin, who wore a gray suit identical to that of the squad's players, was in character as Jason Bent, a fictitious pro soccer star from his British TV series. He was eventually spotted by captain Steven Gerrard.
This isn't the first time Brodkin has tried to pull a fast one on a soccer team. In March, 2013, Brodkin ran onto the field at Goodison Park before an Everton vs. Manchester City match. He was promptly detained.[Telegraph]
