LAKE FOREST, Ill. — There are no golden tickets, chocolate rivers or fizzy lifting drinks to be found at the Chicago Bears‘ practice facilities, but that didn’t stop tight end Martellus Bennett from drawing a parallel between coach Marc Trestman and Willy Wonka. Speaking during ESPN 1000’s The Jay Cutler Show on Tuesday, Bennett expressed his appreciation for Chicago’s new coach.
“I think me and Coach Trestman are probably the only two people who understand each other,” Bennett said. “I always say Coach Trestman reminds me of the first Willy Wonka. Not the Johnny Depp one. The Johnny Depp one was really cool, but the first one before that, the 1943 version.” Actually, the adaptation Bennett referred to is the 1971 film “Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory” starring Gene Wilder. Depp starred in another adaptation of the movie in 2005.
