‘Home Team’: Internet Clowns On Absurd Trailer For Netflix Movie About Sean Payton Starring Kevin James

 'Home Team': Internet Clowns On Absurd Trailer For Netflix Movie


  • Netflix has released the first trailer for their upcoming sports-comedy film Home Team.
  • The film, which will release on Septmeber 28, stars Kevin James as New Orleans Saints head coach Sean Payton.
  • Yes, you just read that correctly: Kevin James is playing Sean Payton in a movie.

Do you know what ALL sports fans have been waiting for? Laying up night after night, praying to the almighty lord above to bless us with? A series about New Orleans Saints head coach during the year that he wasn’t actually the head coach of the New Orleans Saints, that’s what!

On Tuesday, Netflix unveiled the trailer for their new series Home Team, which stars — wait for it — KEVIN JAMES as Saints’ head coach Sean Payton, who spent the year he was suspended from the NFL due to BountyGate coaching his son’s sixth-grade football team. Glorious. Simply glorious. Plus, in addition to James, Home Team stars acting heavyweight and Twilight alum Taylor Lautner.

Of all the movies to make about the New Orleans Saints, the fact that this is the one Netflix chose to make is borderline offensive. Payton became the head coach of the New Orleans Saints THE YEAR AFTER the devastation of Hurricane Katrina (2006), and during their first game back in the Superdome in nearly two years, Steve Gleason — who was since diagnosed with Lou Gehrig’s disease — had a blocked punt that produced one of the most inspiring and electric moments in the history of the National Football League. Make *that* movie!

Here’s the official synopsis for Home Team, via Netflix:

Two years after a Super Bowl win when NFL head coach Sean Payton is suspended, he goes back to his hometown and finds himself reconnecting with his 12-year-old son by coaching his Pop Warner football team.

Home Team will hit Netflix in the United States on January 28th. Hopefully, the comet from Don’t Look Up makes contact before then.
