Mike Fontenot is a Star

Chicago Cubs News

Mike Fontenot will take time from his busy playing baseball schedule to play himself in an episode of TBS’s “My Boys,” which I’m sure is a really great show.

Fontenot will play himself in the episode, parts of which will be taped Tuesday at HoHoKam Park. Without revealing the plot, Fontenot said one of the male characters on the show makes a play for his girlfriend, who apparently is trying to make Fontenot jealous.

Sounds hilarious.

Fontenot, a natural ham, was perfect for the part. He said he has seven lines overall and already has learned them.


“I was on the phone with my girlfriend, then I told my sister. … I was pretty excited about it,” he said. “I’ve been standing in front of the mirror rehearsing.”

These pretzels are making ME thirsty!
