Tom Brady is apparently in talks with Netflix to star in a roast special amid reports that his circle is apparently trying to talk him out of attempting to launch a career in stand-up comedy to ex-wife Gisele Bundchen to win back.
That reports RadarOnline, the recently retired quarterback wants to try his hand at stripping in a last-ditch effort to reunite with his ex-supermodel. They divorced last October after 13 years of marriage — a move that coincided with Brady’s decision to retire and play one more season in the NFL.
TMZ Sportsmeanwhile, say Brady is in talks with Netflix about the “roast special” which apparently has the working title “The Greatest Roast of All Time,” but claims he’s not pursuing a full career in comedy.
Radar adds that Brady’s people are not encouraging him to take a new comedic career path. A source is quoted by Radar as saying, “Tom was a great quarterback, but he needs to drop this idea before it’s too late.” As a cartoon character, he is strictly speaking a water boy.’
That said, there were some compliments for the 45-year-old’s sense of humor.
Tom Brady is apparently considering a career as a cartoonist as part of his latest efforts to win back his ex-wife Gisele Bundchen after their divorce last October.
Brady and Bundchen were married for 13 years, but Brady’s retirement last year was reportedly a factor in her decision that their marriage had come to an end
Reportedly, Brady’s people are trying to dissuade him from trying a career as a stand-up comedian
“He does a great impersonation of former teammate Rob Gronkowski and his over-the-top Boston accent is hilarious,” the source also told Radar.
Brady has also taken a break from the blockbuster $375 million 10-year deal awaiting him at Fox Sports to become an analyst during the NFL season now that he’s retired.
He won’t start that role until 2024, as he said he needed to decompress football, but Radar claims it’s actually because he wants Bündchen back.
“The biggest obstacle between them was Gisele’s complaints that Tom put football before family, so he decided to show her he’s willing to focus on them before taking the job at FOX,” an insider told Radar. “His only goal right now is to get his family back.”
The night before Brady confirmed his retirement, he took to the red carpet in Los Angeles for the premiere of his “80s for Brady” movie — a comedy — alongside Jane Fonda, Lily Tomlin, and Rita Moreno.
“The ladies have been super nice to him and he’s done a good job reading professionally written material for a little bit – but he’ll be in a whole different league when he takes the stand-up stage,” Radar quoted an insider as saying.
Brady announced his retirement from football the next morning, insisting that this time he would not change his mind.
“I’m retiring for good,” Brady said in a video posted to social media on Feb. 1. let you know first.
Brady recently had a small part in a comedy film – ’80 for Brady’ – and the night before his retirement, video attended the premiere with Jane Fonda, Lily Tomlin and Rita Moreno
The next day, Brady posted his emotional retirement video, but joked to his fans, “You only get one super emotional retirement essay and I used up mine last year”
In recent weeks, the 42-year-old Bundchen has been seen relaunching her modeling career
‘It won’t be long-winded. You only get one super emotional retirement essay and I used up mine last year.”
The 42-year-old Bundchen responded to Brady’s video, saying, “I wish you nothing but great things in this new chapter of your life.”
While he is considered a friendly figure outside of football, humor has never been something massively associated with Brady, aside from his film. He has always approached sports with an intense and laser-sharp focus and sometimes his temper has taken over.
Last year, he was filmed ranting to his Tampa Bay Buccaneers teammates during a meltdown midway through a game against the New Orleans Saints. He apparently broke two tablets in his moment of anger and gave in to his Let’s Go! podcast that he was ‘pretty p***ed’.
But it seemed to have the desired impact – the Bucs defeated the Saints 20-10. But even in the more relaxed setting of Let’s Go!, Brady never struck listeners as a comedian.
In the weeks following his retirement announcement, Brady seemed to spend most of his time with his children.
He has two with Gisele – 13-year-old Benjamin and 10-year-old Vivian, whom he has also seen during riding lessons.
Brady’s last football game was on January 16 when the Bucs lost to the Dallas Cowboys
But Brady left football as the best quarterback the game has had – with Super Bowl wins
Brady also has another son, 15-year-old Jack, from his previous relationship with actress and model Bridget Moynahan.
Brady’s Bucs narrowly made the playoffs in his final season before being defeated 31–14 by the Dallas Cowboys on January 16—his last game ever.
He retires with a reputation as the best quarterback to ever play in the NFL and has seven Super Bowl titles to his credit.
Bundchen, meanwhile, has revived her modeling career and was recently seen partying at the Rio Carnival.
