Arian Foster to book 'em with Danno

Dallas Clark was in "Criminal Minds" when he was a member of the Colts, and Andrew Luck, Reggie Wayne and Jim Irsay recently appeared in “Parks and Recreation.”

Not to be left out of network TV, the Texans now have a star set to make an appearance.

Running back Arian Foster will appear in Monday’s episode of "Hawaii Five-O." Here’s what CBS is telling us about the episode, which is to air at 10 p.m. ET:

It’s an All-Pro football weekend in Hawaii and while Danny obsesses about the big game, Five-0 investigates the murder of a tech executive with the help of a star football player. The Houston Texans’ All-Pro running back Arian Foster, Pat Monahan from the band “Train” and Larry Manetti (“Magnum P.I.”) guest star in this episode.

While those are some quality guest stars, I’d hate for you to watch and not pay careful attention to what I am told are also excellent performances by Victor Harris (as “Fan”) and Adam Lefebvre (as special ops. soldier #2).

I kid. I’m sure both are excellent. But I kid.

More power to Foster for grabbing a guest slot while he can. He’s a bit of a renaissance man, and it’s cool for him to be able to get his toe in the water as an actor (or as a celebrity playing himself). The more opportunities a guy like him can take advantage of during the peak of his NFL powers, the better. Presumably his helmet is off while he’s on screen, and in most of his time on the field that is not the case.

I missed the “Parks and Rec” I mentioned. But I know you’ll help me rank Foster’s appearance.
