Aaron Rodgers to Appear on The Office

Put yourself in the shoes of Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers. You just signed your first huge contract. You are now the highest paid player in NFL history. You are a Most Valuable Player award winner in both the regular season and the Super Bowl.

What could you possibly do now?

How about try your hand at some acting, in something other than commercials?

Well, that is exactly what Rodgers plans to do, as he will reportedly appear in this Thursday’s episode of “The Office” on NBC, according to the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.

Rodgers has found himself to be pretty marketable over the past few years. From commercials to charity events, people go crazy  for everything number 12 gets himself involved in.

This is not the first time Rodgers has spent some time with actors from the popular prime time series, which is ending after this season. Rodgers appeared in a video with Brian Baumgartner, who plays Kevin on the show, as the two went back and forth about golf tips during an episode of Subway’s “Golf Therapy: Life, Lessons and the Pursuit of Par.”

As seen in the video, Rodgers possesses some decent on-screen presence, and there is no lack of comic genius from both celebrities.

Rodgers will play a judge for an a cappella singing competition during the episode, which will air Thursday at 8 p.m. CDT on both NBC26 in Green Bay and Today’s TMJ4 in Milwaukee – as well as all NBC affiliates across the country.

Catch the episode if you can’t get enough of Rodgers this offseason, and let us know what you think of his acting skills in the comments.

Hopefully you are not sick of the “Discount Double Check,” because if this episode goes well, Rodgers may continue to act, just as one of his peers has continued to do over the years.
