WATCH: Marshawn Lynch To Appear In Season 3 Of HBO’s ‘Westworld’
Marshawn Lynch has traded his spot on the field for a spot on the screen, appearing in the trailer for Season 3 of HBO’s Westworld on Thursday.
“Beast Mode” Lynch can be seen around the 55-second mark of the trailer, standing behind actor Aaron Paul while the two walk down a dimly lit hallway. An HBO spokesperson told ESPN that Lynch has a “fun and pretty substantial” role.

This is not Lynch’s first acting credit. He has appeared in two episodes of the The League and one episode of Brooklyn Nine-Nine, playing himself in both.
Westworld is a critically acclaimed sci-fi/western drama that has been nominated and has won multiple awards since it debuted in 2016.
Lynch, 33, has retired from the NFL twice already, only to return. In 2016, he retired from the Seattle Seahawks, but returned in 2017 and 2018 to play for the Oakland Raiders. He then returned to the Seahawks late in the 2019 season.
