Asked whether he had an actor in mind to play him in a potential movie, Brady gave the most Boston answer possible.

“I’m going with Mark Wahlberg,” Brady told Westwood One’s Monday Night Football pregame show. “A Boston legend [from] Dorchester, one of the just ‘grind-it-out’ kind of guys.”

It’s not exactly a novel concept, seeing as Wahlberg is a die-hard Patriots fan.

This Super Bowl is a win-win for me. My two favorite teams.

Not to mention, the two have worked together on a movie set before. Brady had a cameo appearance in Wahlberg’s smash hit “Ted 2.”

Besides, it doesn’t matter who you root for. A movie about the inner workings of the New England Patriots would almost certainly be a can’t-miss peek behind the curtain.
