NEW YORK (WFAN/AP) – It looks like Rex Ryan will kiss Bill Belichick’s rings after all.

In character, that is.

Ryan is teaming up with Adam Sandler for a new movie in which the Jets coach plays – get ready for this – a New England Patriots fan.

Sandler told NFL Network’s Rich Eisen for his podcast Thursday that Ryan is a Boston-based “inexpensive” lawyer in the movie titled “I Hate You, Dad.”

The funny man said Ryan was “loose and funny” about playing “a mammoth Patriots fan.”

“We wrote it in the script,” said Sandler. “He was great enough to be loose and funny about it. He talks about Brady. He talks about coach Belichick. He’s really cool.”

That’s sure to be a strange sight for Jets fans.

Sandler, whose upcoming movie “Jack and Jill” will be in theaters on Nov. 11, is an avid fan of Gang Green who has attended several games.

“I saw (Ryan) in the hotel in the morning going to the set,” Sandler said. “I saw coach running lines with two nice girls that work for the Jets. Just seeing the coach in the lobby doing his lines and memorizing them, closing his eyes. Then he put on a suit. Kind of a goofy suit. He did great. … He did nail it.”
