A guide to the new comedy starring Jane Fonda, Lily Tomlin and, of course, Tom Brady.
You don't need to be a pigskin expert to love 80 For Brady.

He's modeled Ugg boots, served as a spokesperson for NFTs, produced the Emmy award-winning documentary about himself Man in the Arena and appeared on TV shows like Family Guy and Entourage.
Whether Brady, who is currently the starting QB for the Tampa Bay Bucs, will be playing in the Super Bowl this February is up on the air. But you will be able to catch him on the big screen in a not-really-football-related-endeavor. He'll be in the movie 80 For Brady, which he also produced, alongside other superstars like Jane Fonda and Lily Tomlin (no relation to the Steelers coach, by the way).
