Matt Leinart has scored himself another high profile job – and TMZ says that it doesn’t involve dodging defensive ends or throwing long bombs.

Although the new movie he’s reportedly going to be in could quite possibly bomb.

A spy on the L.A. set of a new Adam Sandler film has confirmed that Leinart got a role in the untitled flick, featuring Scary Movie star Anna Faris.

While sources claim Matt Leinart is serious about the part, we’re told that he’s only shooting when he’s not scheduled to see his 9-month-old son, Cole, with ex-girlfriend Brynn Cameron.

The pretty boy QB is reportedly busting his ass to make sure his new acting gig doesn’t interfere with either daddy duties or, you know, his football obligations with the Arizona Cardinals.

This news, of course, comes after Brynn Cameron made headlines by saying that Leinart’s “Hollywood stuff” is taking focus away from being a good parent, as she complained to the Ventura County Star, “It’s kind of hard for me as the mom … he comes and goes whenever he wants.”

While Leinart and Cameron dated at USC, they were broken up by the time she announced she was pregnant. Matt has since been linked to several celebrities, including Kristin Cavallari.

A rep for Matt Leinart wouldn’t talk about the movie, but assured the Arizona Cardinal faithful that “Matt is focused right now on his way to training camp. He has a job with the Arizona Cardinals. That’s all we have to say about that.”

Indeed, Matt Leinart has a job. To lead the moribund franchise to another 6-10 season and get sacked 70 times while earning up to $8 million with incentives.

Leinart is embroiled in a nasty legal battle with Cameron, a 21-year-old USC student and basketball player, who is asking for more than $30K a month in child support from the former USC star, who signed a $50 million deal after turning pro.
