American Footy with a more arcadey, violent bent – what could be better? Well, coupling it with top comedic talent such as Frank Caliendo (who?) and top actor chap Jay Mohr (we know him, he was the twonk from Jerry Maguire), of course. Midway has announced that both have been signed up to appear as voice talent in the game, with Caliendo taking three roles and Mohr performing as the hot-shot agent of the latest rookie phenom. Bit of a stretch for Mohr then.
There loads of other good stuff in this version too:
