Every movie has to have a bad guy, and when it's a movie about the Green Bay Packers, a Vikings fan will definitely do.

That's the task for the producers of "The Sixty Yard Line."

According to, the people behind the romantic comedy being shot in Green Bay are seeking Vikings fans to play the part. Not an easy undertaking in those parts.

The film's plot revolves around the true story of an obsessed Packers fan who bought a house near Lambeau Field, which leads to him being on the outs with his fiancé and losing his job. It takes place around the time Brett Favre signed with the Vikings.

Packers players John Kuhn and Mark Tauscher are in the film, along with former players Ahman Green and Michael Montgomery. UFC fighter Chuck Liddel also makes a cameo.

The cast is shooting the final leg of its winter scenes in Green Bay from February 16-18.
