HOUSTON --Texans star J.J. Watt's voyage into possibly becoming a movie star got underway this weekend.  His debut appearance was in the movie Bad Moms, which opened in theaters on Friday.

Watt plays a middle school soccer coach who loves cats.

Reviews of his appearance are mixed.

In his Houston Chronicle review, Robert Morast wrote, "After watching him in the new film "Bad Moms" it's easy to think Watt's back injury better not be too serious, because he's got some work to do on the acting chops."

Meanwhile, film critic Richard Roeper said Watt was "actually pretty funny."

Watt has previously appeared as himself in the shows New Girl and The League. He's also set to have a role in an upcoming film directed by Ang Lee.
