The seven-time Super Bowl champion is reportedly in talks with the giant streaming service to be the center of a roast special titled 'The Greatest Roast of All Time'.

AceShowbiz - Tom Brady might add Netflix to his business portfolio. The retired quarterback is in talks with Netflix to be the center of a roast special with the working title "The Greatest Roast of All Time".

TMZ reported on Tuesday, February 28 that the seven-time Super Bowl champion is currently in talks with Netflix to star in the comedy special amid rumors over his plans to take up comedy.

Although there are scant details about his reported conversations with the streaming service, the former NFL Star has dabbled in comedy. He hosted "Saturday Night Live" in 2005, just a few months after he won his third Super Bowl with the Patriots. He also made brief cameos in the 2015 comedy, "Ted 2", and Paul Rudd's Netflix series, "Living With Yourself" in 2019.

The rumors came after it's reported that Tom has signed a 10-year, $375 million deal with FOX Sports to become the network's football analyst. However, he won't jump behind the mic until the fall of 2024 as the NFL icon reportedly wants to make one last attempt to win back his ex-wife, Gisele Bundchen.

A source close to the situation told Radar Online earlier this month, "Without football to lose himself in anymore, he's feeling lonely and abandoned." The source added, "He wanted Gisele to see what she was missing but wound up just embarrassing himself!"

"The biggest obstacle between them was Gisele's complaints about Tom was putting football before family, so he decided to show her he's willing to focus on them before taking the job at FOX," the insider further explained. "His only goal right now is to get his family back."

Tom and Gisele officially divorced in October last year after 13 years of marriage. Per a three-page legal document, Gisele filed the petition for the dissolution of marriage and it was finalized on October 28 in Glades County, Florida. The paperwork officially declared the marriage as dissolved and "irretrievably broken."

Currently, Tom and Gisele are maintaining a healthy co-parenting relationship. Recently, the retired athlete's 10-year-old daughter Vivian took over her dad's Instagram account to post about their adopted cats.

"Poke is my name," Vivian captioned a snap shared via Instagram Story. "Drinking out of Vivi's water is my game." She went on to show the feline's "nap time" before clarifying, "Btw this is Vivi [cute smile emoji] on my dad's phone."
