Travis Kelce is going to tackle the Big Game before the big screen.
The superstar Chiefs tight end has seen his star rise off the field this season, thanks in part to his high-profile relationship with Taylor Swift, a top-rated podcast with his brother, Jason, and a string of national TV commercials.
He even hosted “Saturday Night Live” in March — and made a surprise appearance during an October episode while on a NYC date night his Grammy-winning girlfriend.
“Man, I’m comedy all the way,” Kelce told reporters this week. “I don’t know if I’m anything else. I just like to have a fun time and make people laugh.”
Not that he’s going to limit himself, though bigger projects will have to wait — even if his management team is already receiving film scripts.
“I’ll dabble into everything though just to see if I have fun doing it,” he said. “And I know there’s definitely Hollywood talks out there, but I’ve been focused on football throughout the season so I’ll probably have a lot of those meetings and conversations when it is all said and done.”

It might be a while for the 34-year-old, who was selected to the Pro Bowl for the the ninth straight season on the heels of a 93-reception, 984-yard season that came with five touchdowns.
He’ll face the San Francisco 49ers on Sunday in Super Bowl 2024, helping lead the Chiefs’ charge alongside Patrick Mahomes for a second straight championship and a third title in five seasons.
Kelce is possibly the top storyline of the game as his relationship with Swift has further elevated his status.

She’s become a staple at Chiefs games despite her packed Eras Tour schedule and is expected to attend Sunday’s winner-take-all matchup, flying in after a performance in Japan.
“She’s unbelievable, she’s rewriting the history books herself,” Kelce said Monday night. “I told her I’ll have to hold up my end of the bargain and bring home some hardware, too.”
