Wait, what?

Yup, that would be Joe Theismann appears (stars? Sure, stars!) in Hallmark Channel's new movie "SnowComming."

The former Redskins quarterback makes his second appearance on the network, this time in a larger role as a sports agent to an NFL quarterback.

"It's a great Hallmark movie," Theismann told Chad Dukes earlier in January. "Hope everybody enjoys it."

"It's a great chance to sort of step-back, relax a little bit and then get ready for the Super Bowl," Theismann said on 106.7 The Fan. 

“I get tweets and texts from friends of mine saying, ‘Hey, I saw you in that Hallmark movie,’” Theismann told The Washington Post last week. “My wife loves Hallmark movies, I enjoy watching them, and now I’m becoming a much bigger fan of them."

A "SnowComing" spoiler-free plot synopsis: Jake Gillette, a famous NFL quarterback and, coming off a loss in the Super Bowl, returns to his hometown to celebrate the retirement of his former high school football coach. In his hometown, Jake encounters his former flame Samantha, the woman he gave-up on to pursue his football dreams, who also happens to be the daughter of his former coach. Will romance bloom between Jake and his former sweetheart? (Theismann, by the way, plays Gillette’s agent.)

“I get to be an agent of a guy that won a Super Bowl and lost one, so I can relate to that too,” Theismann said. “I got a chance to really have a lot of fun with this one. You sort of channel your inner Jerry Maguire and Dwayne Johnson from ‘Ballers.’ I’m a Type A type of guy and it sort of fit my personality in that regard." 

"Guys are reluctant to admit it, but there are guys who pull me aside and say, ‘Yo man, I really love the Hallmark Channel, too,’” Theismann told The Washington Post. 

"SnowComing" premiers Saturday, January 26 at 8 p.m. ET. 

"I'm putting it in the DVR as soon as I get home," Dukes told Theismann.
