New England Patriots Super Bowl champion will lend his famous sense of fun to the new viral sports clip series
He barely has his land legs back after hosting the Gronk Party Ship last month, but already NFL stars has some big entertainment projects in the works.
The New England Patriots Pro Bowl tight end and Super Bowl XLIX champion is set to host Nickelodeon’s “Crashletes,” a new viral sports clip series produced by Rob Dyrdek and Shane Nickerson of Superjacket Productions.
“Crashletes” will feature guest personalities from the worlds of sports and entertainment, along with the funniest, craziest viral sports clips and user-generated content from around the world, according to the network. As host, Gronkowski will offer funny commentary on the clips, alongside his co-hosts and guest stars.
It is far from Gronk’s first foray into the world of entertainment — and we’re not just talking about his skillful touchdown spikes or smooth dance moves. The Patriots star played himself in the “Entourage” movie last year and currently portrays a police officer in the film “You Can’t Have It,” alongside older brother Dan Gronkowski. He is also the author of the New Times best-selling memoir, “It’s Good to Be Gronk,” with agent Jason Rosenhau, and was among the countless A-list stars at Vanity Fair’s Oscar party Sunday night.
Nickelodeon also released details on new show “Jagger Eaton’s Mega Life,” a docu-series following 15-year-old skateboarding phenom Eaton as he skates around the world and hangs out with his idols, on Wednesday. Both series will be in production for 20 episodes each and will premiere later this year.
“Partnering with Nickelodeon allows me to share my passion for sports and pop culture with kids and families in creative and innovative ways,” Dyrdek said in a statement to TheWrap. “With Gronk’s fun, big personality and Jagger’s relatable, youthful insight, ‘Crashletes’ and ‘Mega Life’ will resonate with sports fans and kids alike.”
Gronkowski and his family entertained over 900 fans during the last weekend of February when they took to the high seas for a three-day cruise from Miami to the Bahamas on the Norwegian Pearl — a 965-ship with a spa, casino, bowling alley and 13 bars and lounges — hosted by Atlanta-based event company Sixthman.
Rob, 26, his brothers Gordie Jr. and Chris, dad Gordy Sr. and WWE wrestler Mojo Rawley party-rocked on stage with Flo Rida, Redfoo, Waka Flocka Flame and Sammy Adams plus DJs Dante and 3LAU in epic performances that went viral on social media throughout the weekend.
They also reacted their infamous “Family Feud” appearance, to similarly hilarious results.
