Super Bowl LIV (that’s 54, for some of you) is here and will see the San Francisco 49ers take on the reigning league MVP in Patrick Mahomes, the Legion of Zoom and the Kansas City Chiefs. It’s been 50 years since the red and yellow were in a Super Bowl game. Here are some of the famous faces that will be cheering them on along with all the drunk would be tailgaters (sorry Chiefs fans) when the team heads to Miami for the big game.Paul Rudd: It would seem irresponsible not to start this list with Paul Rudd, who is arguably the celebrity most know as a diehard fan of not only the Kansas City Chiefs, but the city’s baseball team the Royals as well. When the Royals clinched a playoff spot in 2014, Rudd, who grew up in Lenexa, Kan. and attended the University of Kansas, jokingly invited fans to a party at his mother’s house.Also Read: Will 49ers-Chiefs Stop the Super Bowl's 4-Year TV Ratings Slide?Rob Riggle: The funny man and former Marine grew up just outside Kansas City in Overland Park, Kan. and was also a fixture during the Royals recent two World Series campaigns. Riggle told a Chiefs team blog that he’s been waiting for the Chiefs to go to the Super Bowl his entire life.Also Read: Super Bowl Parties 2020: TheWrap's Ultimate Guide to the Hottest Invites in Miami (Updating)Jason Sudeikis: Though younger than Paul Rudd, Sudeikis went to the same high school in Kansas as the superhero actor. He was also a fixture at games during the Royals’ playoff runs and has been a staunch supporter of Kansas City, even wearing a t-shirt of a popular Irish pup in Kansas City’s historic Westport neighborhood in the above photo.Also Read: The Super Bowl Has Generated $3.6 Billion-Plus in Ad Revenue in the Past 10 YearsEric Stonestreet: The “Modern Family” actor grew up on livestock farm in Kansas City, Kan. (which is different from Kansas City, Mo). But if you question his love of Chiefs, just scroll through his Instagram to see photos of him in the locker room and video of him beating the drum during home games.Brad Pitt: If Paul Rudd is the actor most famously known to be a Chiefs fan, then Brad Pitt is simply the most famous Chiefs fan. While walking the red carpet at the 2020 SAG Awards, which happened to be the same day the Chiefs punched their ticket to the big game, fellow Chiefs fans tossed Pitt a hat to rock on the carpet.Melissa Etheridge: The country rock icon, from Leavenworth, Kan., is a longtime supporter of the red and yellow. She even sang the National Anthem ahead of the AFC Championship game last year agains the New England Patriots.Henry Cavill: The Kansas City Chiefs have a Superman, which is fitting, since the comic book character grew up just over the state line in Kansas. Cavill, however, is English from Jersey in the Channel Islands. That however hasn’t stopped him from cheering on the Chiefs via his Instagram.Read original story Super Bowl LIV: Kansas City Chiefs’ Most Famous Fans, From Paul Rudd to Melissa Etheridge (Photos) At TheWrap
