About Brian Bosworth
Brian Bosworth, nicknamed “The Boz,” is a former Seattle Seahawk NFL football Linebacker and current Hollywood film actor. He played in the NFL for three seasons during the 1980s. Bosworth played college football for the University of Oklahoma, and was a two-time consensus All-American. He also was made famous by his flamboyant personality, controversial comments about the NCAA (t-shirts), radical hair cuts, and risky Hollywood stunts.
Bosworth was drafted by the Seahawks in the 1987 NFL supplemental draft and signed what was both the biggest contract in team history and the biggest rookie contract in NFL history at the time: 10 years for US $11 million. He was forced to retire due to a chronic shoulder injury – which then saw “Boz” pitched as a new action star in the cinema.
Bosworth has acted in over a dozen movies since 1991, most recently in 2013 Bosworth played the role of ‘Hawg’ in Revelation Road. In 2014, Bosworth will play ‘Stone Cold’ in The Expendables 3.
