As Football season kicks into high-gear, Interview magazine talks shop with NFL’s youngest new star, Cam Newton. Football royalty, winner of the Heisman Trophy, and first pick overall in this year’s draft, the 22 year old reflects on playing ball with the big boys, his big-money contract with Under Armour and what it feels like to sign a four-year deal with the Carolina Panthers worth more than $22 million (insert sigh here). What really caught our eye, were the images of the robust player shot by photographer Gregory Harris. Not your typical action shots, the portraits feel more like a moody fashion editorial featuring — the actor Cam Newton — as he prepares for an upcoming role as a “football player” or an American heartthrob. Well-played Interview Magazine, well-played. – Jeanine Pesce
