Clay Matthews, Packers O-line will appear in Pitch Perfect 2
The first trailer for the hotly anticipated Pitch Perfect 2 hit the internet today, and it looks like the Green Bay Packers are among the groups trying to dethrone the Bellas.
The movie will focus on the World Championships of Acapella, but the trailer shows a brief glimpse of Clay Matthews and Packers offensive linemen David Bakhtiari, T.J. Lang, Don Barclay and Josh Sitton as one of the competing groups, with Matthews' guns getting some extra attention from star Rebel Wilson. Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers' brother, Jordan Rodgers, is also in the group.
The players seem to be fans of the originals, with Bakhtiari tweeting about the film a few times in the offseason.
It appears that Bakhtiari got the cameo started with this tweet in December 2013.
"[Bakhtiari] had to do a lot of lobbying but he came through and more power to him," Matthews said, according to ESPN.com.
Thanks to their roles in the film, the players are now members of the Screen Actors Guild.
And, yes, they did get paid.
