Tim Tebow is no stranger to television cameras, but one movie producer is giving the New York Jets quarterback the opportunity to star in his next film.
David Dginguerian, a producer of the 2012 film "Crossroad," sent a letter to Tebow in which he praised the Christian quarterback for being a positive role model.
"You have been a great idol for so many by your display of courage and strong faith that all things work together for those who love God and are called according to his purpose. (Romans 8:28)," wrote Dginguerian, according to the letter obtained by TMZ.
He later added, "I would like to extend to you an invitation to star in my next Faith-Based Film. You are an inspiration to so many on the field and off, and I am certain that your passion will also come through in films."
A representative of WME, the company that handles Tebow's public relations, told The Christian Post they currently have no comment about Dginguerian's offer.
Tebow has some known acting experience, though it is limited to television commercials. He filmed several commercials endorsing TiVo, the developer of the first digital video recorder (DVR) system, in which he is shown playfully discussing the product with two children.
He also pretended to tackle his own mother, Pam, in a pro-life ad from Focus on the Family that aired during Super Bowl XLIV in 2010.
In his letter, Dginguerian says "Crossroad" is now licensed in Africa, Europe, Australia, Brazil and elsewhere. The film, which is about a father who wrestles with his faith even as he seeks revenge on the man who killed his wife and child, has the message of Romans 8:28 as its theme.
