It's been said that Chuck Norris' chief export is pain. If that's the case, he can expect business to slow down this fall, because there's a new sheriff in town: Peyton Hillis of the Cleveland Browns.
That's right, the Madden NFL 12 cover boy has donned the duster coat and cowboy hat for a video spoof of the classic 1990s action crime drama, Walker, Texas Ranger, which starred a strapping Norris portraying "a modern-day Ranger who believes in the Code of the Old West and is a martial arts expert," according to his Wikipedia page.
Old West meets martial arts combat? A strange combination, indeed, but Hillis himself is something out of the ordinary: a hulking running back—he's listed at 6'2", 250 pounds—who hurdles defensive backs, tightropes sidelines and pulls in one-handed catches. Parallels do exist.
The video promotes Hillis' new website, peytonhillis.com. Visit the site to shop for gear, download video, view photos and keep up on all things Hillis.
