(2021) (Stephan James, J.K. Simmons) (R)
- QUICK TAKE:
- Drama: Various coaches and power players must contend with a star college quarterback calling for a strike before the big championship game.
It's 72 hours before the college football championship game when Missouri Wolves star and recent Heisman Trophy-winning quarterback LeMarcus James (STEPHAN JAMES) and his teammate, Emmett Sunday (ALEXANDER LUDWIG), drop a bombshell on the sporting world by calling for a player strike over the NCAA making money off of their on-field work. This not only doesn't sit well with their coaches -- James Lazor (J.K. SIMMONS) and Ronnie Dunn (LIL REL HOWERY) -- but also a variety of power players in the world of college athletics.
That includes Southeastern Conference head Richard Everly (DAVID KOECHNER), NCAA executive Mike Titus (JEFFREY DONOVAN), and head booster Rodger Cummings (TIM BLAKE NELSON). But the one to be feared the most is outside consultant and fixer Katherine Poe (UZO ADUBA) who sets out to find anything incriminating on LeMarcus to blackmail him to stop his crusade and from getting other players to join them.
As the clock ticks down toward the big game, LeMarcus and Emmett stand their ground, all while Coach Lazor -- who's unaware his wife, Bailey (KRISTIN CHENOWETH), is having a fling with college professor Elliott Schmidt (TIMOTHY OLYPHANT) -- tries to talk sense into those two and the rest of the players.
