'Pitch Perfect 2' Trailer Features A Cappella and... Clay Matthews?

"The Pitch Is Back" says the first trailer for Pitch Perfect 2 , the sequel to the 2012 smash hit about college a cappella groups, and so is most of the original cast. Anna Kendrick, Brittany Snow, Rebel Wilson, Skylar Astin, Adam DeVine, Elizabeth Banks and John Michael Higgins all return for a second go-around. The crew is joined by plenty of newcomers, from Hailee Steinfeld to David Cross to Katey Segal and... is that Clay Matthews in the trailer?

Yes, it is. Green Bay Packers linebacker Clay Matthews makes a cameo appearance in the trailer, so we might get to hear one of the most fearsome linebackers in the game sing. This is a real thing that is going to happen, and I am beyond excited.

Thankfully, there are actual singers taking part in this film. The amazing Pentatonix will be around, because they are one of the best a cappella groups on the planet. If they don't win this a cappella competition in the film, I'm going to riot. I have a strange feeling The Bellas are going to come out on top, but it's just a hunch. And a familiar face that I saw was that of German video sensation Flula, who sports fans may know from his terrific Dirk Nowitki tribute:

Needless to say, there's a lot to be excited about, and I'm probably focusing on some incredibly odd things to get amped about. I just want Flula to break out in an ode to Dirk Nowitzki and for Clay Matthews to tackle him, is that too much to ask? Then sure, have Anna Kendrick come sing about it afterwards to please everyone else. I would literally watch 90 minutes of Flula and Clay, though. I'll start working on the script, but until then, check out the trailer below.

Pitch Perfect 2 hits theaters on May 15, 2015. Plenty of time for me to write my spec script for the Flula/Matthews buddy comedy.
