Jeremy Roenick Continues Acting Career, Looks Good in Security Guard Outfit

The picture above you is, of course, of Jeremy Roenick.  No, he isn’t Kevin James’ stunt double in “Paul Blart: Mall Cop”, but he is continuing his acting career. 

“Hi, I’m Jeremy Roenick.  You may remember me from such TV shows as “The Agency” and “The Ghost Whisperer”.  

It’s a shame we can’t find any videos from those magnificent performances.  Anyway, he will be guest starring on the new TNT series “Leverage” this Monday, which according to the MLB playoffs, stars Oscar-winner Timothy Hutton.  The description of the episode is as follows, via

The Leverage team attempts to expose a conglomerate’s cover-up of their toxic fertilizer, which has resulted in the death of a young girl. But the CEO has put all of the damning evidence on a plane to the Cayman Islands. The team races to catch the flight but, once airborne, they discover that the CEO’s intentions are far more sinister and that to avenge one life they’ll have to save their own.

Hmm, wonder what JR will be doing?  We’ll make sure to check it out this week, and hopefully get a YouTube clip of him in his second career.  Just don’t forget, Jeremy, televised hockey needs you.
