LeBron James to make acting debut in Kevin Hart film

LeBron James will make his feature film acting debut in a movie penned by comedian Kevin Hart. According to Deadline.com, Hart is currently writing the film, and production will start next summer.

Deadline reports that James has waited for a couple of years to star in this movie, but it has just now secured financing. He and Hart will play brothers, with James portraying a version of himself.

(Hart will) then star as a man who lives in the shadow of his NBA superstar brother (James), but gets a chance to prove himself when he and some pals attend a weekend fantasy basketball camp in Miami.

With the role, James follows superstars such as Jordan, Kareem and Shaq, who filmed movies while at the peak of their NBA careers. On a scale from “Kazaam” to “Airplane,” early odds are on this flick ranking a shade above “Space Jam.”

    I believe it will be a waste of money. Lebron don’t have real heart and compassion. or he would have never gave up on the challenge of taking Cleveland to championship and take the easy way out. you need a real heart to make acting in a movie worth watching. several sports stars have done it in the past.
