Although, Baron Davis hasn’t played this NBA season, you will still be able catch him on national television very soon.
Recently, Mr. Davis filmed a cameo on the TV Land hit show, “Hot In Cleveland” and during the taping, Baron got a little starstruck when performing with actress Betty White:
“I just forgot all of my lines!” Davis yelps at the 90-year-old comedienne and TV legend, his eyes as wide as the ball he bounces for a living. “I’m so starstruck!”
Davis, though, is a trained actor, having hired an acting coach last fall. “I get asked to do things like this all the time,” he explains, “so I thought I’d put in the work and have the same respect for acting as I do for my sport.”
Clearly, it’s paying off: Davis quells his jitters and nails his scene in four takes. “His acting skills are wonderful,” White confirms. “And he’s the sweetest. I hope we write him into the show.”
Baron is also working on a television pilot called, “I Love Boom”, a comedy that details the life of a professional athlete during his off-time or as Baron called it, “Curb Your Enthusiasm meets Entourage”.
