There are two dates in February that are marked on the calendars of Tom Brady’s millions of fans: February 3 and 12. The latter is the day that Super Bowl LVII will take place in Arizona, and although the chances of Brady playing it again with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers are slim, with the so-called GOAT you never know what may happen.
The first is the day that the comedy ’80 For Brady’ opens in theaters, starring four Hollywood legends: Lily Tomlin, Jane Fonda, Rita Moreno and Sally Field, who give life to four veteran friends who organize a trip to go to Super Bowl LI to see the Pats and, of course, their idol Tom Brady.
Featurette reveals some behind-the-scenes anecdotes
The Paramount Pictures film is based on a true story, and since its first promotional trailer was released a couple of months ago, fans are already looking forward to it. Meanwhile, the studio today released a featurette entitled “Friends Make Everything Better”, in which the actresses who play the four friends give some details of what the shooting was.
The film, directed by Kyle Marvin, also stars Guy Fieri, Bob Balaban, Glynn Turman, Ron Funches, Jimmy O. Yang and Harry Hamlin.
Tomlin, 83, commented on the story: “I had seen a video in which one of the women received a call from Tom Brady to tell her that her grandson had pitched the idea to his agent and that he had liked the story so much that he was going to make a movie about his adventure.”
They share their opinions about Brady
Jane Fonda told People she was impressed by Brady himself. “He was so sweet and generous and humble,” she said, and was seconded by Tomlin:
“He has an incredibly sweet character. He’s sensitive and tries to make people feel comfortable,” she said.
Brady told People, “The opportunity to work alongside these four incredibly talented women has truly been a once-in-a-lifetime experience.”
“Not only are they true professionals and experts in their craft, but they are even better people, and it was an honor to be on set with them.”
