Lights, Camera, Action with A.J. Hawk

Lights, Camera, Action with A.J. Hawk

Former Ohio State linebacker and current member of the Green Bay Packers A.J. Hawk came to BTN this afternoon to join host Mike Hall and analyst Stanley Jackson on the set of #BTNLive.

After a quick spin around the office to shake hands and kiss babies, Hawk got prepared for the bright lights and HD cameras. Like the saying goes, “Ain’t no business like show business.”

Before Hawk took his spot on set, senior editor Brent Yarina and I pulled him aside to answer a few hand-selected Twitter questions and strike a pose. SPOILER ALERT: Hawk likes his hair short now, and doesn’t plan on letting it grow out.

He flashed the O-H-I-O, swigged down some water and it was time for action.

Be sure to tune in tonight for #BTNLive at 6 p.m. ET. Based on his knowledge of the game and comfort level on-camera, don’t be surprised if Hawk pursues a career in television after his playing days come to an end.
