We are the chimpions.
Jack, the hockey-playing chimpanzee, has won the leading role in the new movie MVP: Most Valuable Primate.
And the hairy hero has been appearing at stadiums across America - for peanuts.
Jack's been featuring in exhibition games during America's National Hockey League matches, putting the highly paid ice stars to shame and stealing the show every time.
A spokesman for film company Keystone Entertainment said last night: "Jack skates a little faster, shoots a little harder - and is driving everyone bananas."
Jack, who normally lives in a primate preserve in Northern California, has been trained for his role by Carol and Gregg Lille.
His film should be released in Britain next year.
