He's the NFL all-time leading rusher, Pro Football Hall of Famer, Dallas Cowboys legend, Dancing with the Stars champion and... actor? Yep, Emmitt Smith is adding a new talent to his list of accomplishments when he appears (as himself) in an episode of CSI: Cyber this Sunday, January 10th. "Emmitt ought to do Emmitt pretty well," he joked in a recent telephone interview with The Associated Press. "It really doesn't compare to football in terms of the physical activity. Mentally, it's kind of the same because in football there's terminology you have to learn. Here, you have to remember lines." Smith appears in an early scene, signing autographs on the streets of chilly Washington. Shad Moss' character, Brody Nelson, recognizes the former running back. Moss, the rapper once known as Bow Wow, and Koontz's character, Daniel Krumitz, strike up a short conversation with Smith, even challenging him to a foot race (of sorts). Does he accept their challenge? You'll have to tune in to find out. Click here to see a fun behind-the-scenes video of Emmitt's day on the CSI: Cyber set.
