This year’s Los Angeles Dodgers team is full of big personalities and players that are very active on social media. One of the lower profile star players on the Dodgers is reigning Cy Young winner Clayton Kershaw, who’s known more for his philanthropy rather than his self-promotion.
According to Josh Tucker of Dodger Insider, the left-handed ace will be seen in a different capacity this upcoming Sunday:
Clayton Kershaw will appear on Sunday’s episode of New Girl set to air on Fox directly after Super Bowl XLVIII.
New Girl is a Fox sitcom starring Zooey Deschanel that revolves around a woman living in a loft with three other men. The show is a favorite of Kershaw and his wife, Ellen, prompting him to accept the cameo on the post-Super Bowl episode. Kershaw has shown himself to be a professional on the camera back in 2012, when he and catcher A.J. Ellis spent some time on screen as a skit for the Dodgers titled, Between Two Palm Trees.
After signing a seven-year, $215 million deal to remain with the Dodgers, Kershaw can now be considered a face of the franchise and could prompt more of these cameos in the future. It’s unlikely that the 25-year-old takes up acting as he’s coming off a season in which he went 16-9 with a 1.83 ERA and 232 strikeouts.
Dodger fans will be able to see their ace on their television besides dominating on the mound.
