We all know Marshawn Lynch loves video games, thanks to his hilarious turn on Conan O’Brien’s “Clueless Gamer” segment. But the Seattle Seahawks running back doesn’t just enjoy executing gory fatalities with Rob Gronkowski.
He likes shooting things, too.
Lynch will get a chance to do so — safely — as a character in the upcoming “Call of Duty: Black Ops III” video game. He donned a motion-capture suit for the game developers, according to ESPN The Magazine, and he sounds pumped about it.
“I’ve been in the Super Bowl, movies, music videos, Madden,” Lynch said, according to ESPN.com. “But to have your own character in Duty is, I mean, it’s almost like you arrived.”
Heh, heh. He said “duty.”
Anyway, it doesn’t sound like Lynch is a playable character in the game — at least not for the part described in the magazine article. The game still looks ridiculously fun, even if gamers won’t be able to go “Beast Mode” themselves.
