Defensive Linemen and Hollywood: Lyle Alzado

It was easy to see that Lyle Alzado was a big personality and that a move from football to Hollywood was a natural fit. He had a lengthy resume which can bee seen HERE:

Alzado's first film was in the kid's film The Double McGuffin where he played an assassin alongwith fellow NFL defensive linemen Ed Jones. He had several small roles through 1985 when he was still in the NFL.

In 1986 he starred in Oceans of Fire, as a team member meant to save oil rigs from underwater fires.
