'Field of Dreams' gets pigskin sequel in Web video
Wednesday, July 6, 2011
NEW YORK (AP) -- Voices are still being heard in Iowa cornfields, only this time, they want Taylor Lautner to build a football field.
The website Funny Or Die debuted a three-minute "Field of Dreams" sequel Wednesday. The "Twilight" star plays the equivalent of Kevin Costner.
Lautner builds a football field that attracts locked-out NFL players eager to play. League owners locked out players in March, and labor negotiations have since been ongoing.
A number of NFL stars make appearances, including Ray Lewis of the Baltimore Ravens, Tony Gonzalez of the Atlanta Falcons and Shawne Merriman of the Buffalo Bills. NFL Network's Rich Eisen and ESPN's Steve Levy also show up to broadcast the action.
Original "Field of Dreams" co-star Ray Liotta returns to play NFL commissioner Roger Goodell. Costner also makes a cameo.
