Cutler, Cavallari guest-star on 'The League'
By Michael C. Wright
LAKE FOREST, Ill. -- Chicago Bears quarterback Jay Cutler flashed some comedic timing guest-starring with wife Kristin Cavallari on Wednesday night's episode of FXX’s “The League.”
But Cutler maintains that acting probably isn’t in his future after football.
“It was good. But like I told Kristin, it’s a lot of waiting around,” Cutler said. “You do your thing and then, it’s like three hours, just sitting around. I was like, ‘This is what you do?’ Played on the iPad, played some cards. It was fun, but I don’t think I would’ve done it if she wouldn’t have asked me. So I don’t think it’s something I’ll be doing regularly.”
Cutler joined Cavallari in the episode “Chalupa vs. The Cutlet,” and in one scene, the couple is standing in a playground speaking with another couple about their children. During the conversation, Cutler and Cavallari’s son throws a toy from his stroller over the heads of the couple with whom they’re conversing.
The husband tells Cutler: "The kid’s got a cannon; probably gets that from his mother.”
Cutler responds: “We’re working on his accuracy. He loves throwing the ball.”
While Cutler indicated Thursday that he enjoyed the acting experience, he said he won’t be watching the episode.
“Kristin watched it the other day and said it was pretty good. So I’ll take her word for it.”
Asked whether he’s now got more respect for Cavallari’s profession, Cutler laughed and joked, “I’m supposed to say more, right?”
