NCAA Football '08 "Texas fan" is really Baylor grad
Lee Jennings is supposed to be the the UT broseph that gamers can relate to - white, 20-something, southern, conservative, and fanatical about sports - the target demographic for EA Sports new college football game. However, there is one small problem: Lee Jennings is a fictional person. That's right "Lee Jennings" is a role played by LA-based actor and Baylor alum Toby Meuli (BFA 2004). Check out his IMDB profile if you don't believe us. But how do we know for sure, you ask? Toby responded to our email and confirmed the story.
In Baylor-Baptist fashion, I must openly confess that it is me in the Texas EA Sports commercial. Putting on that burnt orange shirt after spending four years despising the Horns has been my greatest acting challenge to date. Here's to the day when I can do an EA Sports commercial for Baylor Football. Sic'em.Also, you'll like this, Matt Leinart shot his EA commercial the same day I did and we shared a dressing room. He was an incredibly nice guy and we swapped some losing-to-Texas stories; I think he hates them more than I do.
Sic 'em, Bears!
