The Marshawn Lynch Story (starring Marshawn Lynch)
Big news, movie fans. Marshawn Lynch will tell his story on the big screen later this year in a biopic called Family First, in which he will play the role of Marshawn Lynch. "I'm more than ready to play myself," Lynch said of the role. "I got the acting bug when I played a small role in Matt's Chance starring Gary Busey. I definitely want to expand my opportunities after football. I've also been on a couple TV shows, so I'm not nervous." As we've said before, If Gary Busey doesn't give you the acting bug, then nothing will.

This is Doughy?
ESPN's Ryen Russillo spoke with NBA scouts about the top prospects in next month's draft and when the conversation turned to Julius Randle, his weight was an issue. A scout said of the Kentucky forward: “Don’t love his body — a little doughy. Will he work? These guys want to get paid, so they start hitting the gym.” Lost Letterman posted photos of a shirtless Randle and if he's doughy, then I'm Yokozuna.
