Recent memory and success has had our favorite Green Bay Packers players spread across anything dealing with contemporary culture.
However, these select players featured below have kept these appearances and interests under the radar and break from the norm.
Shall we begin?
Aaron Rodgers has obviously been the most prominent face in modern football iconography, gracing multiple publications and commercials. Seldom mentioned is the involvement in his own record company, Suspended Sunrise. An avid music lover, Rodgers has used the same passion on the gridiron to the studio, by producing music videos for his acts.
Released in 2011, Aaron Rodgers appeared in, “Get It,” by his label’s band, The Make. With a “Big Lebowski” bowling theme, Rodgers makes an appearance true to the MVP’s patented humor. Jared Allen must be jealous from the exquisite execution of the mullet.
Keep an eye out for QB from 3:08 to 3:10.
Looking at Center Evan Dietrich-Smith, and the initial impression may bring shutters when exposed to the vast array of skeleton tattoos adoring both arms. Yet if Smith lifts his right arm, a little personality flows through with one particular tattoo on his bicep.
Scribed in his skin is a film-buff’s Easter egg, with a skull and two eyes peering from the cryptic skeleton. This logo comes form the cult classic , “Evil Dead 2″, which details a man’s horrific and comical adventure against demons in a secluded cabin.
Still intimidating? I think so.
Marshall Newhouse may be known as the TCU standout, who filled in for the Packers at the left tackle position. What many people may not know is that while Newhouse pummels opponents into the turf, he would rather let them, “live long and prosper.”
A Trekker (correct term for the Star Trek fan community), Newhouse has kept his over 27,000 followers on Twitter, in on his love of the final frontier.

For anyone who has not seen the seminal 80s classic, “Star Trek: The Wrath of Khan” the reference to a line humorously delivered by William Shatner’s, Captain Kirk. In Newhouse’s case, his sandwich was the receiver of his rage, and hopefully the new competition of this season will, “bury them alive.”
Though he might never get the chance to play his idol, Batman, Ahman Green has kept busy since his last season in 2011. Expanding his horizon, Green was able to use his work ethic on the field and translate it to the Adam Sandler produced, “Big Stan.”
Green’s talents may have been better suited in a film like “The Longest yard” where he took the role as a prison inmate alongside “Grown Ups” star Rob Schneider. Though the film was released straight to video, Green can stiff-arm some of these early roles into big runs in the future.
