Omari Hardwick left his football dreams back in Athens, Georgia in exchange for her roles in shows like Power and time on stage at the National Poetry Slam. Nearly two decades later, he’s going to return to the state where it all started in hopes of getting the pro football glory he always dreamed of. All he needs to do to make it to the Super Bowl is the help of his daughter. In the first trailer of Paramount’s newest film, Fantasy Football, Hardwick plays the role of an aging running back whose career is revived when he learns that his daughter can control his actions on the field through Madden NFL.
“When Callie discovers she can control her NFL star dad through EA SPORTS Madden NFL 23, she finds that keeping their secret is harder than they think! Marsai Martin, Omari Hardwick and Kelly Rowland star in the new Paramount+ Original movie, Fantasy Football,” the trailer’s description reads.
Omari Hardwick, Kelly Rowland and Marsai Martin hope to hoist the Lombardi Trophy this November. Check out the Fantasy Football trailer below.
