64th Man is an Audible Original starring the world-famous and powerfully funny John Cena, Emmy-nominated actress Anna Chlumsky (Veep), comedy legend Jane Curtin, and an all-star cast of Saturday Night Live performers and alums. Produced by Broadway Video, this sports comedy is not an audiobook - it’s a 10-episode scripted audio series that’s like TV for your ears.  

In sports, everybody loves redemption stories, the underdog who no one believes in but through sheer hard work wins it all. But no one tells the stories of the players who work hard and don’t make it. In pro football, 53 guys get on the roster. Ten make it to the practice squad. And then there’s the 64th Man - that’s Billy Logan (Cena), who seems to always be one spot from glory.  

After a promising college career capped by a headline-making, game-winning play, Billy seems destined to be drafted to the NFL. But he isn’t, and after a year of tryouts and near misses, he still hasn’t made it pro. So, he returns home to Columbus, Ohio, to figure out how to make his great gridiron dream come true. With a new job at a grocery store, Billy reconnects with his ex-girlfriend Ellen (Chlumsky), but generally it’s embarrassing to be back in town, seeing as he was the “star who was going places”, and now he’s seen as the “star who never went anywhere”. Looking for an opening to the end zone, Billy will tackle anything to make his dream come true. It’s a path that leads him to a billionaire tech bro starting a new professional football league that has more in common with professional wrestling, a health guru selling a cult-like fitness craze, and a hard-partying NFL quarterback who needs a real-life tackle dummy for his football video game. Will these lateral runs lead Billy to NFL stardom? A life of love with his ex? Or something totally unexpected from an elderly mentor named Mildred (Curtin) who he trains at the gym? 

Written by Bryan Tucker, senior writer at Saturday Night Live, and Zack Phillips, former head writer at Above Average and its sports site The Kicker, this hard-hitting underdog story with a touch of romance also features Leslie Jones, Adam Pally, Chris Redd, Alex Moffat, Jay Pharaoh, Mark-Paul Gosselaar, Will Forte, Heidi Gardner, and more. Listen to Billy’s journey as he learns what happens when you're fourth and inches from your dream, but the game clock is running out.

Highly Recommended!

Great story and AMAZING cast. This is marketed as a "series" rather than a traditional audiobook, but it listens like a book and is very entertaining. Cena kills is, and so does the rest of the cast. Highly recommended.

Entertaining

Enjoyed it. Great entertainment. I listen to a lot of audiobooks on my travels. This was a true production that kept me engaged and entertained. If looking for entertainment, download and enjoy.

Laugh out loud funny

This is the most entertaining story I’ve listens to.
I think audible needs more stories like this.
John Cena is the perfect lead man for this story.
Though I’m not a football player, it’s an easy story to relate to as I know the challenges we face when we struggle to make our dreams come true.
I loved the social media jabs, loved how there was a gimmick to fall for and how eat it is to be dragged in.
Loved the end. I cried and I understood.
Thanks

I LOVE YOU JOHN CENA!

Let me just start by saying I have never written a review and I have been using audible since 2014 so I encourage you read on. I am usually all about some very different genres of reading and I know next to nothing about football, up until last week I thought a touch down earned 7 points. I am usually not into the scripted audio, I just enjoy being able to listen to my books while I get things done. HOWEVER!, Despite all of these facts I gave this audio series a try because of the all star cast that have put together and did I mention I love John Cena, been crushing since Marine but that's besides the point. This cast put on a great show I am so proud of John Cena, so proud of Anna Chlumsky, Will you too just great job guys. I laughed, I gasped, I cried, I am just in aww. Billy gets hopeless sometimes but he is just not giving up and I am so psyched to see where life takes Billy. He is just such an endearing, confused soul that doesn't know what to do with himself now that he doesn't have a coach to order him through life. It was so fun listening as he grew and found himself. This series is not just for Football lovers guys it's wonderful. Give it a shot, I honestly didn't regret it. Can't wait to share this experience with my football loving mama.

John Cena does a great job reading

I was surprised at how good a job John Cera did with his performance. I mean no disrespect, I just didn't think he'd done anything like this before, and he did a great job. The story is good too, funny.

So so good

At this point John Cena is a national comedic treasure! I was fully engrossed in this entire story. The voice actors, the story, the real life push and pull was gripping. I just loved this!

phenomenal!

this is an amazing way to listen to a "book". I really hope that more people hop on this style of story telling and we get to basically listen to a movie more often

A Comedy Sporting Hit

John Cena takes his comedic prowess to the next level, always been a fan of him in WWE but now he takes it to audible.

Definitely a must listen for all sports fans :)
