Acting Comes Naturally to Asomugha

Raiders cornerback wants to do more acting in the future.

Oakland Raiders cornerback Nnamdi Asomugha had made cameos in "Friday Night Lights", "The Game", and "Leverage", and plans to do more acting in the future.

"I can't say that I've always wanted to be an actor, but I can say I've always known how to entertain a crowd," Asomugha told The Daily Californian. "I would get in trouble a lot of times in school for disrupting a class because of my sudden urge for wanting to make people laugh.

"My teachers would always say, 'You're going be on TV one day because you're not afraid of being in the moment'. I did a couple plays and took a couple of classes growing up, and at that I knew it was something I wanted to really do. It's definitely something I want to continue to get better at and continue to do, so be on the lookout."

Repeats of those programs are likely to be the only chance you'll see Asomugha on national television this Fall, as the Raiders aren't currently scheduled for a primetime game.
