According to The Wrap, former NFL superstar James Harrison has been cast in the new upcoming wrestling centered Starz series entitled Heels. The 41-year old won two Superbowls with the Pittsburgh Steelers and was selected to the league's Pro Bowl five times. He joins series lead Stephen Amell (Arrow), who has stepped into the squared circle for WWE, as well as at the now famous ALL IN event that led to the formation of AEW.
Harrison is slotted to play the character of Apocalypse, and is described as "a been-around-the-block journeyman wrestler who's been at it for decades and has no illusions of fame or glory." Check out a full show synopsis below.
