By the time the 2003 NFL season reached its postseason push, the Chiefs' Dante Hall had already established himself as one of the game's marquee attractions. He set an NFL record with special-teams touchdowns in four consecutive games, then showed his under-the-helmet savvy with an endearing appearance on Late Show With David Letterman
. But he hadn't actually gone Hollywood until he shared a spot with acclaimed character actor (and Kansas City native) Don Cheadle. Donning a replica Chiefs jersey, Cheadle raced Hall down the football field, finishing a distant second. "I'm fast," Cheadle claimed between pants. "Civilian fast." Hall later performed his trademark crossed-arm celebration in an ad for Gatorade's X-Factor line, but the traffic-defying return man and the Traffic
star were an even better match.
