Devin Thomas stars in Fantasia video

I assume this is Devin but can't swear to it; image via The YBF.

Maybe you saw the news on Devin Thomas's Twitter account, but if not, I'm here to tell you that the Redskins receiver is one of the star's of Fantasia's new music video, Bittersweet, which Thomas said would be released next week.

"She just needed a young sexy man in her video, and my name came up," joked Thomas, who said he plays Fantasia's fiance in the video. "This is my first time ever being in a video. It was a great opportunity, just to get a chance to be with somebody of her stature, to be a main role in her video."

(See more photos at The YBF.)

Thomas said his role was lined up by his publicist, and that he had never met Fantasia before the recent one-day shoot at a theater in New York. But he said the two had no trouble generating on-camera chemistry.

"It was huge," he said. "It was like we had dated before or something. It was kind of weird, but it kind of happens like that. When you meet somebody that's cool, down to earth, and you just know you've got to play a certain role, you just fall into the role."

Interestingly, Redskins teammate Larry Johnson appeared in a Fantasia video from her previous album, well before he signed with the Redskins.

"At that time I lived in New York and she was doing Broadway plays, so they happened to call around and find out I was living in New York," Johnson told me. "They needed a replacement, so they called me, and they said 'Hey, do you want to come down and do this video shoot?' I literally rolled out of bed and went down there. I was like, hey, all right. We shot it all in one day, and I went home, and that was that."

"We've just got that charm," Thomas said, when I asked about Fantasia and the Skins.

"She's knocking 'em down," Johnson quipped.

Thomas said the rest of his team already knows about his star turn, and that they're waiting to make fun of him next week, regardless of how his performance looks.

"I'm ready to get on him; as soon as see the video, I'm getting on him," Santana Moss joked. "Me personally, if it was something I'm getting some money off of, [maybe I'd do a video], but if I ain't making no money off it, I don't need to be out there. I don't know what he's doing, but like I told you, I'm gonna get on him regardless. Whatever he gonna get, I'm gonna still get on him."
