Video: Funny or Die Uses Field of Dreams to Spoof NFL Lockout

Funny or Die paired up with ESPN and the NFL Network to produce a video that spoofs the NFL lockout by invoking iconic scenes from Field of Dreams. The video premiered this morning on SportsCenter, and features Taylor Lautner in Kevin Costner‘s role, Dennis Haysbert in James Earl Jones‘ role, Ray Liotta (who played Shoeless Joe Jackson in the baseball movie) in the role of the money-grubbing businessman, and various football players including Tony Gonzalez, Ray Lewis and DeSean Jackson.

No, Jackson does not play the hot dog lodged in the little girl’s throat.
