Lois Lane, the kid from Terminator 2, the Six-Million Dollar Man and Gary Busey—that's probably not the crowd that Seahawks coach Pete Carroll envisioned his starting running back, Marshawn Lynch, rolling with this off-season. As a favor to a friend, Lynch took a bit part as a bouncer in the indie film Matt's Chance, starring Margot Kidder, Edward Furlong, Lee Majors and the aforementioned poster boy for kooky actors. And last week Lynch filmed his lone scene, roughing up a few folks and delivering one word of dialogue, "Relax"—which is exactly what Seattle fans can do now. After his cameo Lynch said of acting, "It's just not me.... It's not something I'm [going to] to pursue." And somewhere, Carroll let out a sigh of relief.
