Marshawn Lynch, Westworld...

Some eagle-eyed television fans saw him first in the trailer — after all the man himself (and HBO) had dropped hints about it awhile back. So, it didn’t take long for both science-fiction and sports fans make the matter a national sports story on Thursday.

Former Seahawk Marshawn Lynch landed a bit part in Season 3 of HBO’s enormously popular sci-fi thriller, Westworld. You can look for him as a security guard at the 55-second mark in the recently-released trailer. It remains unclear how much more screen time he’ll get.

Even so, the news got the hosts of KIRO Nights and Seahawks expert and 710 ESPN’s Tom, Jake & Stacy show host Stacy Jo Rost to thinking about Beast Mode’s small-but-impressive acting career.

The conclusion? Without knowing yet what he did in Westworld, here is our ranking of Lynch’s Top Three Scenes on television so far:

Third place is Marshawn Lynch vs. the Hog on Running Wild With Bear Grylls:

Second is Lynch’s turn as a quesadilla enthusiast and unhelpful crime witness on Brooklyn Nine-Nine:

And first is his painfully funny send-up of Superbowl XLIX in FX’s The League
