Some of Hollywood’s heavy hitters, including Jennifer Garner, Kevin Costner and Chadwick Boseman made their way down the 50 yard line on Monday night during the Los Angeles premiere of Ivan Reitman’s, Draft Day.
HipHollywood threw some passes down the field and caught up with some of the film’s star’s who who scored when talking about why people are going to love this film.
“I think it’s the cast, it’s the performances, and it’s just the drama of the behind the scenes of sports that goes beyond what you would see on ESPN or Sports Center,” Chadwick Boseman said.
The film, which is centered around the NFL’s draft day, stars Kevin Costner, Jennifer Garner and Tom Welling. Welling revealed to HipHollywood that Garner’s character as a female salary cap manager, is the heart and the soul of the film. “It’s so awesome what she does in this film,” he told us.
“I play Ali Parker … She’s super smart, she works in a man’s world and she is not afraid of the boys. She is not afraid to be one of the boys and she is not afraid to put them in their place,” Garner explained.
While on the green carpet, we also talked with some of the NFL’s top athletes who took a look back down memory lane and shared their emotions during draft day.
“Draft day was gathering around with a bunch of friends, having a lot of food and snacks and watching the draft and waiting for a phone call,” Philadelphia Eagles cornerback Curtis Marsh Jr. told us. “And when I got that phone call it was the happiest day of my life.”
Draft Day is set to hit theaters on April 11.
