Clay Matthews and four offensive linemen for the Green Bay Packers are making star turns on the big screen.

A trailer for the film "Pitch Perfect 2" features a brief cameo for the Packers quintet. The movie about an a cappella competition comes out in May.

The scene features the Packers wearing dark suits on a stage. Guards Josh Sitton and T.J. Lang stand on each side of Matthews before ripping tear-away jacket sleeves for Matthews to reveal his muscular arms.

The brush with Hollywood was the buzz in the Packers locker room after practice Thursday. It provided a brief but pleasant diversion for the most pressing matter this week of getting ready for Sunday's game against the Minnesota Vikings.

Tackle David Bakhtiari orchestrated getting the cameo roles.
