Eddie George To Make Broadway Debut This January

Former Ohio State running back Eddie George is returning to the big stage. But this time around, it's Broadway, not the football field.

According to the Associated Press, George will be making his Broadway debut in "Chicago" as Billy Flynn. He's starred in a few smaller plays in Nashville the past few years. Here's more:

Former NFL star and Heisman Trophy winner Eddie George will make his Broadway debut in the musical "Chicago," tackling the role of fast-talking lawyer Billy Flynn.

George, who won the Heisman in 1995 and went on to a nine-year career in the NFL, leading the Tennessee Titans to Super Bowl XXXIV, will start work at the Ambassador Theatre beginning Jan. 11.

We imagine there will be some Buckeyes fans interested in checking out his acting skills.
