Rock: Jeff Kent, because he's a reputed ass----, which I respect [laughs].
SI: The Longest Yard was your first sports movie. Will you do another?
Rock: I hope so. When they were casting Jerry Maguire, I was begging to be in the movie. But I wanted them to change it from a wide receiver to a kicker. That's what the NFL is missing: a black, trash-talking kicker. Imagine Deion Sanders as a kicker. Pointing at the goal posts. Gold shoes on. Taunting the sidelines. "Oh, you don't want me out there. My toe is feeling good today!" -- Richard Deitsch
