It’s like a funky remake of “Freaky Friday.”

Two men have switched lives for a week, both are named Reggie Bush.

Bush, the New Orleans Saints running back, is spending time in Danville, Ill., living the life of the other Bush, a construction worker in the town for 33,000. (No, the NCAA had nothing to do with this.)

Construction worker Bush is living the life of an offseason NFL player.


It’s all for a CBS reality show called “Same Name,” which features celebrities switching places with people who have the same moniker.

The NFL star visted a high school in Danville and lifted weights with the football team. He tweeted this week that he is “staying with a cool family out here that shares my last name!”

He says the show will air in July.
