Brian Wilson showing MLB 2K11 short film on Lopez Tonight

If you're familiar with brilliant pop music, then you might assume that the headline of this post refers to the original leader of The Beach Boys -- and you might then feel really confused. No, the Brian Wilson in question is the closer for the World-Champion San Francisco Giants, and 2K Sports has signed him as a creative consultant for a series of short films being produced to promote the publisher's upcoming baseball videogame, Major League Baseball 2K11.

Wilson's not just acting in an advisory capacity for these vignettes, though; he's co-writing, starring in, and ad-libbing performances in the clips. He's appearing tonight on George Lopez's talk show, Lopez Tonight, and he'll be showing the first short film while he's on the show. He's a real character -- witness his sea captain getup in the photo above, a costume worn in preparation for his appearance -- so I'm interested to see what he does with Lopez.

If you want to check out Wilson and the MLB 2K11 short film, tune in to Lopez Tonight in one hour: 12 AM EST (11 PM CST) on TBS. MLB 2K11 itself will be out for PS3, 360, Wii, PC, PSP, PS2 on March 8th. Check the gallery for a screenshot of Wilson's trademark post-save gesture in the game.
