Marlins president also stars in Three Stooges

Being the president of a Major League team is a pretty good gig, but it pales in comparison to, say, movie star.

Marlins executive David Samson can now lay claim to both job descriptions.

The 44-year-old, who has worked for the Marlins since 2002, won a walk-on role in the Three Stooges at a charity auction about a year ago. He was eventually contacted by a producer and flew to Atlanta to take part in the movie's party scene.

“I was forced to make a facial expression with one of the Stooges,” Samson said. “He’s so funny, that he was making me laugh. All I kept hearing in the background was Pete Farrelly yelling, ‘Samson, stop laughing, you’re ruining the take!’ I felt like, ‘Wow, I am being directed by the Farrelly brothers!'"
