The Brewers are a young and restless team, who are baseball's surprise of the season so far. Especially with them being in first place in the NL Central.
With the team on the rise it's no wonder players J.J. Hardy, Bill Hall, Chris Capuano and Jeff Suppan decided to try and conquer what every athlete dreams of - crossover success. In other words, Hollywood. Or at least daytime soaps for now. The foursome taped a guest appearance on CBS soap "The Young and the Restless" on Tuesday.
The Brewers have faced fastballs and line-drives, but acting? That's intense.
The four Brewers played themselves on the show. But if you listen to Y&R actor Peter Bergman, Bill Hall has the most actor upside:
"I was nervous," admitted Hardy, who along with teammates Bill Hall, Chris Capuano and Jeff Suppan had an early wake-up call to film a scene for CBS's top-rated soap on a set at Television City.
"I didn't know what to expect. And when those lights come on, your heart starts pounding."
"Bill Hall seemed to be the most natural at it. From the very beginning, he seemed at ease. The other guys were a little hyped up. Bill settled into it right away. He was very comfortable."The only drawback of the day? Not the $367 they were paid as union-pay scale for their day's work. It was the call-time for the shoot. The players were picked up from their hotel at 6:30 AM. Maybe that's why they lost tonight?
Even so, it was a memorable day for these Brewers. The episode airs on June 20th, and you can bet all of Milwaukee will be watching.
