Tim Tebow's football career isn't going so well, so perhaps it's the perfect time for him to shift his focus to the entertainment industry. Specifically the religious entertainment industry: TMZ reports that David Dginguerian, a "faith-based indie film producer," offered Tebow a role in his next movie. TMZ describes the films as "Jesus-y" (here's the trailer for the latest). No word from the Tebow camp on whether he'll accept. Meanwhile, the Wichita Eagle adds that Tebow gave an impromptu motivational speech to the Wichita State University men's basketball team. (More Tim Tebow stories.)
