A feature film with Rob Gronkowski (that wasn't recorded by a cellphone on a cruise ship or a duck boat) opened Friday. And despite having just one line, he's front and center on the poster for "You Can't Have It" - a tale of a final night at a dive bar that doesn't promise to be part of another Best Picture mixup at next year's Oscars.
The Patriots tight end plays one of the largest detectives in law enforcement history and delivers the immortal phrase, “Someone needs to do some explaining. What’s going on?”
Co-star Joanna Krupa complained to TMZ that the big guy struggled a bit on the set. "We had to do re-take after retake for his one line," she said.
It's been a busy offseason of movies for Gronkowski as he recovers from back surgery that ended his season well before the Pats' Super Bowl run. He was also in "American Violence", which opened in February.
