The Forward Pass: Thaiday’s New Career

Axed by the Brisbane Broncos, Sam Thaiday is keen to start a new chapter…as an actor.

Thaiday has been offered a recurring role as “the wacky neighbour” on Nine’s House Husbands, but believes it’s beneath him.

‘My talents would be wasted on a boring Aussie comedy-drama. Instead, Rusty’s trying to get me the role of Bart in his Blazing Saddles remake. I can’t wait.’
