Ben Roethlisberger will be a part of the new season of "American Idol" on FOX, but he won't be giving up his day job as an NFL quarterback. Roethlisberger recently filmed a commercial for the show, and FOX will air it during the telecast of Super Bowl XII.




"It was a little crazy," said Roethlisberger. "It was fun. The people you work with usually make it fun. The director and everybody were a lot of fun."



Roethlisberger spent about eight hours on the set but didn't want to reveal too many details about the shoot.



"It ties in with football and the show, and so I will leave it at that," said Roethlisberger.



One of the scenes had Roethlisberger as a player in the locker room daydreaming about a contestant on "American Idol" while the coach of the team was delivering a pep talk.



"You never know how it's gonna end up turning out," he said. "It's a little bit of jumping around, so we'll see how they kind of tie it in together."



Roethlisberger enjoyed the experience, especially since he's a big fan of the opening episodes of the show's new season.



"I love watching the beginning part of it when people just go out and make fools of themselves," said Roethlisberger. "That's the part I watch."

To me, it would be more "fun" if Ben were actually playing on SB Sunday. I will be watching only in hopes of the "Greatest Team Ever" getting knocked off by the NFC representative. IOW, I'll probably be tuning in in vain.

Can't argue with 76.

Things would be a bit more interesting and fun if he was playing this weekend.

He can't find something better to lend his name and face to? This is really disappointing.

Geez guys - don't shoot the messenger. :couch: It's the offseason for us (as much as we don't prefer it) and I was looking for Steelers-related articles and happened upon this one.

I'm looking forward to it----Thanks for the heads up HTG. It can't be any worse that the Manning Bros. "DSRL" Oreo commericals

I'd rather him ride a motorized unicycle. American Idol is garbage.

I have to say I don`t really like it when sportsman do commercials,I just wish they`d stick to their own field of expertise.
For me it somehow cheapens their hero status.
American Idol and shows of that ilk turns music into an embarassing karaoke with zero creative integrity.
Sorry Ben,ditch the dumb-ass commercials,have your off-season brake and then start to practice and improve your sporting talent .

Agreed. He's bad. But not as bad as I. :wink02:

Though I despise that show and everything it stands for (please don't EVEN get me started on that!!), it was a cute commercial, and I thought his "acting" in terms of facial expression, was really very good. He came across with a lot of personality and charm, unlike his 2004 fellow draft-classmate, young Manning, who is obviously a good guy but as bland as they come.

Vocally speaking, this is my professional opinion - yikes. Love ya, Ben, but don't give up the day gig. :wink02:

I like seeing football players making fun of themselves, and having fun. It was a lot better than Ocho Cincos commercial. I thougt Bens commercial was cute.
