NEW YORK – John Elway and Jon Bon Jovi are at it again. The Hall of Fame quarterback and the rocker, both owners of Arena Football League teams, have joined the cast of NBC’s “Las Vegas” for a second AFL movie short, “Rumble in the Montecito.”

The short, the second starring Elway and Bon Jovi, will be shown nationwide in 430 theaters next month.

Elway’s Colorado Crush and Bon Jovi’s Philadelphia Soul meet in a game on the set of Las Vegas’ fictional Montecito Resort & Casino in a sequel to last year’s “Rumble in the House.”

“Las Vegas” actors Josh Duhamel, Nikki Cox and James Lesure are featured. Four AFL players also appear: quarterback Tony Graziani and fullback-linebacker Chris Ryan for the Soul, plus quarterback John Dutton and offensive specialist Damian Harrell for the Crush.

“It’s always fun shooting with Jon Bon Jovi,” Elway said. “I’m really pleased with the way it turned out. I think it’s even better than last year’s and I hope people enjoy it.”
