SkerFalcon8710 Posted August 26, 2015 Share Posted August 26, 2015 Julio Jones talks about being 'Trick Montalban' for Madden release clip3hEmailCommentVaughn McClure, ESPN Staff WriterIt's pretty well known by now that Atlanta Falcons receiver Julio Jones was one of the featured characters in a trailer for the new "Madden NFL 16" video. You can see the clip below:Jones appears as "Trick Montalban," with his high-top fade and old-school overalls. The usually quiet Jones even drops a few lines, so it isn't just a cameo. He spent two days in Los Angeles for the shoot, which also included Rob "Half Top" Gronkowski of the Patriots, Antonio "Sticky Bun" Brown of the Steelers, coach Rex "Little Pepper" Ryan of the Bills, and Colin Kaepernick of the 49ers as Al Pacino."Gronk, Kaepernick, Antonio Brown, all those guys are great guys," Jones said. "We had a good time working with Dave Franco and Christopher Mintz. Those guys did a phenomenal job with us. They're real actors. We just kind of connect a little bit."So how did the crew come up with Jones' character name?"I don't know," he said. "It doesn't matter to me. I was just getting into the character. I could have been 'Beetlejuice.' I was just trying to get into the character and play the role."As EA Sports explained, Trick Montalban is a play off the late Ricardo Montalban, a popular Mexican actor who was best known for his role as Mr. Roarke on the series, "Fantasy Island." EA Sports changed "Rick" to "Trick" to create Jones' character."Madden NFL 16" was released on Tuesday. Jones was given a 94 overall rating and 97 spectacular catch rating. He is the highest-rated overall player on the Falcons. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
