A ladies man with a bit of an ego - he's not shy about flashing his Super Bowl ring. After too many hits to the body on the field, Eli finds himself in need of a new kidney. His spirit isn't crushed, however, partly because he's in denial about his career coming to an end. While he waits for his brother to lose weight so he can be his donor, Eli meets Drew (Thomas Middleditch) in dialysis. The two start an unlikely friendship." (Deadline.com)

NICK FURY (Disney+, New!) - Samuel L. Jackson will reportedly reprise his role of Nick Fury for a new TV series at the streaming service. No plot specifics were given about the project, which is being spearheaded by Kyle Bradstreet. Marvel Studios will produce. (Variety.com)
