American Underdog is an inspirational and heartwarming film based on the true story of NFL quarterback, Kurt Warner. While I love a good football movie, I really appreciate when there’s an engaging story connected, and American Underdog delivers just that.
I was recently invited, along with my 12 year old son Lincoln, to interview actor Hayden Zaller. Hayden plays Kurt Warner’s son, Zack. Interviewing young talent is always a joy because they’re just so exuberant and genuinely excited about their work. This was Hayden’s first film, but I have a feeling we’ll be seeing more of him in the future.
Join Lincoln and me as we chat with Hayden. Find out his favorite football team, memorable moments on set, and what type of movie he’d like to do next! Also, did he really get to drive the tractor in the movie?

American Underdog Synopsis
American Underdog tells the inspirational true story of Kurt Warner (Zachary Levi), who went from a stockboy at a grocery store to a two-time NFL MVP, Super Bowl champion, and Hall of Fame quarterback. The film centers on Warner’s unique story and years of challenges and setbacks that could have derailed his aspirations to become an NFL player – but just when his dreams seemed all but out of reach, it is only with the support of his wife, Brenda (Anna Paquin) and the encouragement of his family, coaches, and teammates that Warner perseveres and finds the strength to show the world the champion that he already is. American Underdog is an uplifting story that demonstrates that anything is possible when you have faith, family and determination.
