It’s loosely based on my life and my career. I have four kids by three different moms... It will showcase my skills as an actor, which is something I want to do after football."

Words from notorious NFL pro Mr Terrell Owens on a new TV sitcom being developed for him to star in. It'll be called 8 & 1 (Owens' jersey number with the numerous teams he's played for, but also the number of people who'll make up his fictional character's (Terrell O'Neal's) family in the series; mimicking real life, that figure will include 4 kids, 1 mother, 1 best friend, and 2 "baby mamas."

Owens, who once starred in his own reality TV show, will also be making his feature film acting debut in the ensemble comedy feature Dysfunctional Friends (still above-right), starring alongside Stacey Dash, Meagan Good, Tatyana Ali, Reagan Gomez-Preston, Persia White, and many others.

The film will be making its debut at the American black Film Festival this year, where I currently am, which means I'll probably see the film.

On his skills as an actor, Owens had this to say: “It’s no different from football -- it’s all about hard work... I have a good work ethic. If I can put the same effort into acting. Now I watch a movie and I pay attention to camera angles and body language. It’s 3-D.

So I expect we'll see more of Owens on both the big and small screen in the near and distant future; he can't play in the NF forever...
