In a last ditch effort to avoid being branded ‘a bit predictable’, or the team least likely to do something crazy at the World Cup, the All Blacks have a released a shock statement that they will be calling-up American actor Denzel Washington for Saturday’s Tri Nations decider against the Wallabies.
The actor’s reasons for putting himself forward for selection and links to the country remain unclear, though it seems he may have visited Auckland once on a stopover flight to Japan and has apparently seen at least two of the three Lord of Rings films.
Washington has no previous experience on a rugby field but his press officer commented that: ‘Denzel is a method actor of the highest standard, and when he takes a role on, he f***ing lives and breathes it!’
Footage of the stars first attempt at the Haka were recently caught on camera and posted on Youtube. Judge for yourself…
