Eli Manning of the New York Giants may have been the MVP of the game, but in our minds the Super Bowl MVP was Taylor Kitsch. He not only had one trailer premiere during the big game, but two! His most impressive was the teaser for John Carter, but let’s not forget the powerful work he did in the Battleship trailer as well.
The former Friday Night Lights star is making quite a name for himself in Hollywood. He beat out a bevy of actors to nail the lead in John Carter, from the adaptation of the hero story penned by author Edgar Rice Burroughs.
And as we saw in the Super Bowl trailer for Battleship, Kitsch anchors an all-star cast that includes Liam Neeson and Rihanna in that film’s big game teaser.
Overall, the New York Giants may have won the forty-sixth playing of the Super Bowl, but the winner off the field was Kitsch who killed it in the arena of why many people watch the game: For those super soon-to-be greatly dissected game-time commercials.
